Museum Pencil Roughs
I am not going to tell you all about how I inked the first two pages of the Robot Museum on high quality water colour paper only to find I was working on the wrong side and how the paint smeared and bubbled on the paper. I won't confide in you how I spent a nine hour day struggling with said paper in the mistaken belief that if I applied enough paint to the wrong surface somehow it would become the right surface. I won't say these things because I think I already sound like a negative person....Anyway these are the pencils for page one of the Robot Museum. It's Feebot coming in from a rain storm and flying through the basement of the museum. I'll post the next page of pencils on Monday. I'm really excited about this because I'm suprised and delighted by the feel of these pages, like things about this world are only being revealed to me as I put pencil to paper. So, more to come soon.
