This is my second attempt to draw a picture book. This time I have a girl protagonist, and have chosen a topic that is not new, but have dealt with it in what I think is an unusual way. She’s got talent but doesn’t find out what it is at the end of the book, as in all the other “Poor me, I’ve got no talent,” “Yes you do!”picture books. In this book, I’ve drawn it so that the reader knows she is literally a second away from finally finding out that she does.
I’m still trying to figure our how to illustrate it. I might go back to my messy, imperfect style (like Captain Nisbet) but give it older, browner colours.
