When I work on art (or anything, really), I find myself messing up my surroundings quite a bit. But you can’t get a result if you won’t get your hands dirty, so I’m ok with that. Right now my room looks like a battle field, but that’s because I’m working on some children’s book illustrations (collage and paint). I want to submit my book “When you get yourself a Dinosaur” to publishers, including some example illustrations. You need 3 full color images and some sketches, I’ve got 2 out of 3 images done, the third is “in the works”.
