oh, and the final version of that OTHER page...

...ta daaaaah! Also to be entered as part of the series. I have not finished the facing page yet; have yet to make final decisions on which birds to put where, and am re-doing one bird right now.... ah, perfectionism, you are a cruel and yet often ultimately very satisfying mistress....


  1. It is perfection indeed! Great patterned background, is it painted by hand? :)

  2. Love these! I will definitely buy the book:) I say "will" instead of "would" because I'm positive you'll get this published if you haven't already done so.

  3. Thank you so much for your comments! Yes, the background is painted by hand- it's gouache on rice paper. I'm planning to do a few more 'complete' pages before I make a dummy to submit to publishers- the problem is, I've already grown dissatisfied with several that I've already done and want to re-do them! This is taking a while...Sooner or later, though! :)
