Here’s the first spread I did in my character journal. It is a small moleskine journal that measures around 6 by 8 inches. The dragonflies are die cuts from K&Company and the circle flowers are pieces of a print I had made with the Gelli plate. I drew and painted in the character and asked my granddaughter Tena what I should call her. Right away she said “Lucy”. I think that the name Lucy fits her perfectly.
Here’s a close up of Lucy. If you haven’t seen the new animate anything app, you should go check it out. I animated Lucy on my phone and it is so awesome (although a bit freaky) to see your character come to life! I wanted to post the animation here but it doesn’t look like WordPress supports the file.
I’m working on finishing up a larger painting that I had started probably about a year ago and am also almost finished with another spread in my character journal. Happy creating!
