Today a sketch for short story about Winter and Spring; they love each other, but they can never meet. She melts, when he comes close. The author lives in far hot Australia, I guess that’s why she has so much sympathy for winter. Let’s see what will come out of this. For Rainbow Babies there’s cover to do yet, but we are not too advanced. At the moment nobody knows, what exactly babies should do on the front cover of the book. There are some ideas, but nothing is sure.

This is my old drawing, but this is also something new. I’ve scratched out this sketch in a zinc plate and I have trasferred it to paper using sepia printing paint (that I have bought) and old bookbinder press (that my family kindly repaired for me). I always wanted to try this. I got 5 not-too-bad copies and this is one of them, with a bit of color added with Conte crayons. Professional graphic prints are monochromatic, I know, but I still have a long way to go to this level and I’m going to have fun in the meantime. When I make a brilliant graphic print (will I ever?) I’ll leave it as it is.
PS. “Not to bad” means: the mole is visible. There are also copies where nothing is visible. This paint isn’t easy! Washing hands takes lots of time, too.

Or rather, it’s a bookmoth; this is a phrase we use here in Poland. Little late evening doodle made with pencil and a few markers.

She’s my favourite character from Little Mermaid. I belive Sea Witch is a mermaid, too, only that she got old and fat (what if Little Mermaid wouldn’t die young? would she look the same?) Well, that’s how it ends. My beautiful dog Lori used to be a slim pointer and now she looks like a seal, all smooth and rounded. And she has just come to tell it’s tea time; Lori loves everything about tea time except tea. OK, I need to go and find a cookie.

The last of 12 main pictures (just right for carnival, isn’t it?). Actually it’s no. 11. The real last picture is the one with sleeping babies, but this scene was ready long ago. I have spent most of this month drawing babies. I have no patience to count them all, but there must be about 80 pink babies in the book. More will come (book cover, title page, and perhaps additional pages for coloring) but I don’t want to think about it now. My plan for tomorrow is to go out and dig the garden. I love this job, but the number of babies is overhelming.
