First day of sketching new book with my iPad!!!

The last few weeks, my new writers and myself were brainstorming. We are delighted with our new story for Book 4! Book 4 promises to be a leap - in both story-telling and illustration - for the readers. 

Now comes the hard part - breaking the story into panels for each of the 200 pages.

To help me reference online pictures and do research while I keep drawing, I have my new iPad with its protective cover which doubles as a convenient stand! 

Armed with the new story outline, tons of library books and my iPad, I am again going into the 'desert', where an artist must spend a lot of solitary time for the next few months. As you can also see, like the ancient Tang monk Tripitaka who traveled with his trusty white horse across the desert to India, I also have my little white Jack Russell companion keeping me company too!
