Throughout the process, I could relate to a wonderful quote by Maurice Sendak: "All my life I have been in the fortunate position of doing - creating - what came naturally to me. What could be more wonderful than a dream of childhood coming true? As a small boy, I pasted and clipped my bits of books together and hoped only for a life that would allow me to earn my bread my making books. And here I am, all grown up - still staying home, pasting and clipping bits of books together."
One of the drawings I completed, I will post a small detail of here, as a little "teaser." The whole drawing is a two-page spread, so this is mostly the left-page side. Perhaps I will post the rest of it another time...or perhaps you will need to wait for the book to come out. For now, I will let your imagination try to fill in the blanks as to why this barber is laying down behind his chair.
