version 1 - pen & watercolour
version 2 - collage & china marker
A number of us took the plunge and signed up for Lisa Cinar's excellent and intense Picture Book II course. In the first couple classes, we spent most of our time on writing exercises. First, we were shown images and asked to write for 20 minutes on each. A lot of what I wrote went straight into the trash can, but there was a rough gem in a piece called, Maurice.
In the most recent class, we were asked to explore two styles of drawing the same spread. I had a lot of fun with the collage, but classmates favoured the first version.
