so our last project was to illustrate a book. i went with 'a way through the woods' by nigel balchin. i think it's out of print right now but you can scoop it up on the cheap in amazon's used section, and if you like stories about how not to handle your crumbling marriage, you totally should.
roughs for a handful of the illustrations. boy, i sure do hope you like my scraggy stick men because there sure are a lot of them round here.
