A peak in my studio

Here's a little glimpse into my studio.

Life has been quite busy these past few weeks.  I have soooo many new ideas for illustrations, but I'm keeping them all behind the scenes right now.  Lots of sketching and dreaming, and playing with coloured pencils.

I seem to get my best ideas when I'm thinking of other things.  I might be washing dishes, and suddenly *pop,* there's an idea floating in my head.  Is that normal?  I guess it must be.

That little meerkat with his pile of books is actually a fairly old illustration.  But, as I don't think I've shared him here before, I thought I'd let him have his 5 minutes of fame.

He just loves books.  Don't you?
