Here is the "cover" of my book. The theme is "Pretend". Lately I have been enjoying the idea of animal dreams - not dreams about animals, but what animals dream. Would they ever pretend that they are something that they're not?

And here is my entry into my book. I don't want anyone to feel that they have to draw animals in my book. I don't want to be too prescriptive. Just have fun......pretend.

Will be on it's way to Ewian next week.

Safe and Happy New Year!

wow Jenn this looks great !!! I am impatient to get it but I will have to wait loooooooooooooooong time !!!!

Hey Jenn maybe it would be best to put your address also in front page of the book, in case it gets lost?

hmm.. I didn't put my address in my front page either (because I'm thinking I might even change address during the course of this exchange... I'll let Ewian know about it if that happens).

I'm impatient to see this for real too.
I am even more impatient, as it is holidays here until Tuesday, so the post has been pretty slow of late. one day on, one off. Soon soon I'll see something from Jan.

Wow! These animals really spring from the pages, so dynamic, vibrant, and love your restrained use o colors to punch out features rather than bury the whole thing in color and leave it without this rich contrast you've found.

Ace work, champ!

Jan Allsopp said...

Wow! I just love these & your style.

I'm confused by your comment Emma. I've got nothing to send you. I'm still waiting on Helena's book, unless I've read the list wrong. I don't think she has started yet.

benconservato said...

no no, all good Jan, maybe send Helena a message. She did tell me she was done.

jennifer kraska said...

thanks all!
I put my address in the back.
Mailed on the look out EWian.

二月niji said...

just like emon said, your simple use of colors works magic!

EWian said...

AND it is even more stunning in real life!

I have started the sketch work, but won't be making the actual entry until next week.
Taking the weekend of from drawing/painting and cleaning the studio instead, major mess there...
