I continue to work furiously on The Small Silver Speedster. One week ago, I was very close to done. I am less close now. Having had a couple people I trust read the book – including my editor – they both felt I was trying to fit too much in. And so I’ve tossed a few finished illustrations, a bunch of text, moved some things around, and begun illustrating again.
It’s always hard to let go of work that is DONE. But I am all about creating the very best products I can, so this is not a setback, but a step forward. Without the edits, we wouldn’t have this new page, which is now perhaps one of my favorite spreads in the book.
