It’s always a little intimidating to post rough sketches, but it was a good fit for this week’s IF. Plus, I love to look at other people’s sketches so I feel I have to share, too, right? I’m working on a picture book dummy and the younger sibling in the story is a toddler. My kids are teenagers, so I decided to visit their old daycare provider this morning to do a little sketching. When you are not around toddlers all the time you forget how funny and expressive they are–especially their little hands. My challenge is always how to simplify their expression into as few lines as possible, but while doing so I need to avoid making them look like little bald aliens (which, on a bad day, happens more than I would care to admit!).
