Sketches from Thumbelina

I thought I'd share with you a few sketches I did for Thumbelina.  It's really the most exciting stage I think, when you sit down with a blank piece of paper and a razor sharp pencil and start sketching and brainstorming.  And I really REALLY enjoyed sketching Thumbelina, I mean, how can you not just love her?  

Like I talked about in my last post, I'm still in recovery after the work load that poured over me these past few weeks.  So it was only appropriate to leave town for the weekend and spend it in a trailer up North.  Really, I'm not kidding like a few friends of mine thought!  We actually stayed in this trailer for three nights, and it was just wonderful!  Did some skiing and spent time with dear friends.  I think this photo is just hilarious, it looks like it's in the middle of nowhere, like we got stuck there and can't even open the door.  It reminded me of the movie 'Into the Wild'!  But what you can't see in this picture is the little path we dug to get to it and the two houses on each side of it.  It had electricity so we could heat it up, and yeah, my family is used to live in a small space :)

I love Thumbelina. Is it OK that I want to BE her? Your drawing of her, that is. xx
