Pirate Day Oct.20

I almost have the final sketch/coloring books complete for Art Parent.  I have been reformatting and changing a few of the final sketches but I think it is almost done.  I have a projector on order for the day so I am hoping for a sketch video to go along with the handouts.  I have a few rooms to visit, so it should be a fairly busy day.  I hope the kids are up for it.  Here is a taste of a few of the pages, almost complete....

40 books

 

I go into 2nd grade tomorrow for a quick and final update on the project I introduced last October.  The book is done but still needs some revisions.  One issue was not having a clear enough voice for each character.  I now realize how much farther I could have taken the writing before the sketching....sounds obvious I suppose until you go throught the process for yourself.  Little things like different line weights and a more relaxed drawing style started to become more obvious on the later pages. Again something to watch for next time...wish me luck tomorrow...
