Sleep and Progress

Girl Sleeping

It’s a little hard to get things done when u don’t get enough sleep. I should know since I’ve not been getting as much sleep as I would like. Usually, the white noise machine I have works to get me to sleep. However, it doesn’t work as good lately. Sometimes, it is because I have to get up and go to the bathroom every few hours. Other times, it’s because I have too many things on my mind that I’m thinking about. Last night and the night before, it was because I was having problems breathing. I had to prop myself up with an extra pillow to actually breathe better and be able to fall asleep. I attribute all these reasons for not getting enough sleep to the baby that is due mid May this year. Yep, it’s nice to be able to blame someone else for once…..LOL.

So, since I get tired easier, I have been slow on my book illustration process. Yes, all the images but one are colored. However, I noticed some defects in a good number of the colorings. Some spaces, when seen in an 8.5″ x 8.5″ format are not with color. So, since my book is going to be anĀ 8.5″ x 8.5″ format I need to fix these issues. I also noticed the lines for the images are not as clear for this size as well. So, I am doing the lines over so they are bolder and the image is much more enticing. I am on image #9 right now regarding these corrections.

After this book is finished, I am going to do another children’s book that is for either boy or girl. I already know the subject matter I am going to put in the book as well as the images. Yep, I’m always trying to think one step ahead even though I’m not there yet.
