I love short posts, but I thought I’d include an revelation. I saw a darling photo of a kid-lit friend’s daughter online this morning (Hi Carrie!), and felt compelled to draw. The act of drawing decided on the details for this ‘character’. What I mean is, I didn’t go back to the photo for reference, I let my drawing hand dictate the parts of image I didn’t remember. I let go. And the character made music!
