Study for Book Dummy


People ask, “What are you working on now?” I say I’m working on a book dummy. That always makes them pause. It’s very important where you put the comma. Here are a couple of studies for my new book dummy that I’m working on. One of the most exciting and satisfying times in a book is arranging the story board and working on the book dummy. It is hard to pull yourself out of the studio to do other things. You get to pull things out of your imagination and get them down on paper.

    Thanks for clarifying book dummy. I did actually think you were sort of rude with your response to those who really did want to know what you were doing with your ‘spare’ time. Love your illustrations. Hope to meet you someday. Ever considered doing a workshop in Vernal for our Uintah Mountain Artist’s Association? Would love to have you come to our beautiful area of the world.

  2. Hey Deena, I would love to do a workshop in your beautiful area of the world. Give me a call or send me an email.
