This week I am in the process of the initial sketches for a new book I am illustrating.
The book is through a Swiss publisher but the story is based in Indonesia. In particular, Bali.
As luck would have it the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco is currently running a special exhibit on Bali- WooHoo!
So last week I pootled along to this wonderful museum and gathered lots of reference material.
I am really looking forward to this book as I love the color and patterns of the Indonesian art. And the story is wonderful, though it is still a secret. Shhhhhh.
Here are some photos I took at the exhibit, I will be posting shortly with the initial sketches.
