Focus is a difficult word for me but I've recently decided to be more adult and focus on my paper illustration passion. I have loved creating with paper all my life and not sure why all the distractions from the medium occurred. So 25 pages of an upcoming children's book with about 13 more to go.
Details have always been a double edged sword for me because with details your illustrations are engaging and rich but then lots of details and it slows me down. I have also begun hiding an animal on each page. He's always there hanging out. I won't say what he is but it should be fun for children to start to spot him as they read the book.
