So, Wizard of Oz and Peter Pan are out...the stories are wonderful, but they are just too long to try and print out and send a copy with my moly. Maybe I'm thinking too hard about this, maybe it doesn't matter, but I wanted to be able to include a copy of the story so that we could all follow it as closely as possible, LOL. I know - it's my illustrator nature coming out.
Anyway, when I couldn't find shorter versions of those stories to use....I started thinking about my favorite stories when I was younger. I've been collecting Alice in Wonderland and Little Red Riding Hood books for awhile now...however I've got both of those going in two other exchanges, LOL. So I kept thinking and thinking, and then it hit me, what is my favorite children's book? DUH!! And Jen even suggested it, in one of her comments to me - Where the Wild Things Are. She had commented about a still life I'd done, here, and I was so caught up in deciding between Peter Pan or the story of Oz, that I think I just completely blocked it from my train of thought. So anyway, long story short, I'll be doing Where the Wild Things Are. My main goal now is to try and create a max that doesn't look exactly like Sendak's. LOL.
I'm off to sketch....just keeping you all up to date with my indecisiveness, LOL!!
