The kind of news that makes me want to shout and whoop and dance.
You want to know what it is?
The epic Miss Jack has asked to do the illustrations for her new book Abolished Impracticality!!!!! Me! ME!! Doing actual artwork for an actual book!
Cue the clapping, people. This is huge for me.
I mean... I'm the girl who would draw seventy page books when I was kid. I would tell stories through pictures, and narrate them to myself; I've always wanted to illustrate. So this is a massively awesome opportunity for me.
I've got the first book coming in the mail. I'm super excited to read it. I've wanted to since she published it last year, and I'm haunting the post office until it arrives.
So, Jack, thank you for asking me to do this. You are awesome. :)
That leads me to the drawings for Picture Saturday. Because Jack's books have Steampunkery in them, and I've never drawn Steampunk before, I have been practicing. You want to see my first attempts?
I'm really proud of that gun.
Cheers and God bless!
(By the way, I got an email from HP telling me that my laptop's done and they'll be sending it back soon. The happiness.)
