I've been taking this fantastic class with author/illustrator extraordinaire Laura Montenegro. Laura has a wonderfully sneaky way of pushing you outside of your comfort zone in order to find wellsprings of creativity you didn't know you have. We've been working with collage, and it's a blast! One night in class I created this character who I'm naming, for the time being anyway, Florence Finnicker. I've been working on a picture book story based on her which may or may not go anywhere. If anyone's interested, maybe I'll post updates on Florence's whereabouts in upcoming days.
