I thought it might be interesting to post a few photos of my drawing board and me working at the drawing board. I am what you call a “white knuckle” illustrator—always in a near panic when I’m working on the illustrations for a book. I am NOT a relaxed illustrator. Trust me, writing comes much more easily and more naturally to me.
My temporary studio in the living room when I was working on the finished illustrations for Gemma & Gus and Gus. Molly had just had leg surgery and could not go up and down the stairs. So, I moved my studio down to the living room and slept on the couch for six weeks while she recovered.
