As a warm up this morning, I redrew and redesigned some characters I created for a children’s book that has (thus far) been given the thumbs down. In hindsight, the book doesn’t have the best story, but someday it may get revived and or reworked. No, the book was NOT going to be called “Let’s Get Scary.” I know that’s the territory of the movie Monsters Inc. This book Idea was going to be about a monster called Wall-E.
Worked with visiting artist Nathan Schreiber while we enjoyed pie and coffee at Four &Twenty Blackbirds yesterday. He worked on a book involving science, as he’s smart that way, and I worked on doodles involving monsters for what could be my next project because I’m silly that way. Then we ended up talked about how time didn’t exist before gravity existed and blew each others minds. I wish I’d taken a picture of that moment with my phone as people seem to do in this amazing future we live in, but we were caught up in the moment. Rather than a photo of that though, here’s a small bit of what I was working on.
