Bedding Book - Sneek Peak


I'm working like a dog on my new bedding book and it's finally coming together. Writing and illustrating books like this is a herculean task to say the least with thousands of images and thousands more hours of research and drawing. I constantly wonder what I am trying to prove while I am coloring renderings of bed skirts at 2:00 in the morning! The drawings in this book are much more detailed and complicated than my window treatments book and they each take quite a bit more time to complete. Here is a sneak peak of some of the finished renderings. Hope you like them!





Have a Great Weekend.............................................

Thanks girls for your kind words. It is so great to have this forum to vent my frustrations and doubts. If it were not for the encouragement I have received here while writing my books I don't know if I would have had the fortitude to finish them.
