I started browsing through the first draft of Life on the Rails. It consists of 110 hand written pages. Forty four of those pages evolved into the intermediate book. Sixty six pages remain.
As the advanced book develops, it can very easily turn into two books.
I began illustrations on my new Wacom Bamboo Tablet (thanks to my aunt!). I hope these images will convey a more accurate understanding of the material. They are already doing that for me. =)
Next week starts my week long residency at Neusole Glassworks. Time to start getting these ideas out of the sketchbook!
Enjoy your weekend!
I was raised in Calumet City, IL. My professional glassblowing career led me to Phoenix, AZ and the coast of Carlsbad, CA. where I was given the opportunity to teach glassblowing classes. Notes and chalk drawings of different techniques for the students resulted in my current book project.
