sneak peek: drawing nature journal! [part 1]

one of the projects i’ve been working on and that caused me to skidaddle to the beach for a rest last week… a new book for march 2011, through chronicle books!

the drawing nature journal is both a monograph of my illustrated work, and a journal with a step-by-step recreation of the drawing workshops i’ve been leading here in portland for the past two summers. so for those of you who haven’t been able to make it here for the workshops, hopefully this book will help you recreate the experience for yourself!

yesterday i received the scatter proofs [a few sample pages printed on the actual paper to check for color accuracy] and the bluelines [a sample mock-up of the individual signatures that will make up the entire book]. this morning i’ll be pouring over each and every page for one last round of corrections. this is it – if a mistake gets through this round there’ll be about, oh, 10,000 copies of it in the world!

no pressure!

    Your work has always inspired me so this book is a step to start drawing again! I didn’t know you were offering workshops. I’m in Seattle and would definitely come down for a session or two!
