Yesterday I further developed out my thumbnail sketches. This is a story, not merely about a lil’ pig named Tig Tig... no, its about her mom, her dad, her friends and the new friends she makes. The development of these characters matters to me - how they interact through the story as I believe each is super important... their story matters just as much as Tig’s.
Often its these tertiary characters that are flat fillers, but its these characters, if properly discovered and known, can bring a very special dynamic. - Clearly, not every book this is important - but in this book - extremely.
Here next illustration was a small thumbnail - 3 inches wide.
And... here is Kiwi this morning sitting next to me... she is so cute.
