I submitted my preliminary sketches for the 2nd Courage Lion Book
about GRIEF & LOSS. I'm not allowed to post any of the illustrations, since they own them - but - this particular drawing was rejected - so I'd love to share it with you.
In this drawing, Duffy the Lion is sad and TJ the Giraffe is consoling him.
I wanted it to be poignant and comforting.
But - isn't it amazing what we don't see in our own work - the committee thought the tear in Duffy's eye looked like
"nose drainage" from the giraffe !!!!
I totally missed that!
