I think I'm actually going to finish this ABC Book that I've been working on for my grandchildren for the past few years (or more accurately, for the past few decades, because it was originally going to be for my youngest son...who's 25 now!). I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I've got the R's all finished and stored away in their plastic pages in the binder, and I really like how they came out. (I've noticed that the further along I get, the less critical I am of my drawings and the more I'm enjoying the process).
So here they R, the R's!
Notice that I included another R animal in the rocket-ship, without naming it in the rhyme. I've done this here and there throughout the book, hoping the wee ones will discover these hidden gems.
Now I've got just to finish the pages for I, J, K, N, O, Q, V, W, X, Y, and Z. I've already got the rhymes written for I, V, X, Y, and Z; some of those pages are already partially done, but now I have to get going on completing the artwork for them. If there's anything you'd like to see on the J, K, N, and O pages, leave me a comment and I'll see what I can do.
I'm kind of cheating on the last three letters of the alphabet: instead of doing two pages for each letter, I'm going to draw only one image for each to create the last two pages of the book. So the finish line is well and truly in sight.
Coming soon (I hope): the W's. Watch out for those.
