I’ve been slowly scanning, editing, and placing images on pages with the right (hopefully!) margins for publishing. It’s a painstaking but still kind of satisfying process, but it also means I don’t have much new work to show here. I’ve got two more pages to finish, this map for the history section of the park at the back and the title page. Everything else is fully painted. I’m hoping to send this off to the printer and have a proof ready when I get home. Then I can see how things look, make necessary changes, figure out the pricing and ISBN number, and get them ordered for the fall. It feels good to be this close.
This week was National Dog Day, so I posted “D” on facebook to celebrate. I couldn’t make this book without having Mr. Darcy in it. He’s my regular forest companion.
