After several months of discussions, proposals, and sample drawings, I was indeed offered a contract.
Unfortunately, in the end, I really did not feel that the project was quite right for me and decided to turn it down......believe me when I say, it was a tough, VERY tough decision.
There were many deciding factors, but partly I suppose, it was that my drawings were not really looking like "my" drawings anymore. I can explain it better visually with the example drawings below
The 2nd one is likely how the drawing might look when prepared for use in a colouring book, definitely more detail.....a little more interesting....but... still not quite "me"
This last one definitely feels more my style, I like to add a little drama by playing with positive and negative, but all those filled in areas, all that black, would make it unsuitable for a colouring book.
BUT.....other opportunities can come along....and recently, another one did.....one that absolutely DID feel right....I will tell you more about it in my next post.
