This is not a drawing or a doodle, but a droodle, something in between the two. The macaw sketch is just something I did out of boredom. Since these cunning birds star in my WIP, I thought I'd devote my precious minutes [while students are taking a Trojan War quiz (see On the Go section to the right)] to droodling one of them. I'm sure the bird is out of proportion but that's not important. I've never claimed to be an illustrator, except in this post, where I unveiled my artistic prowess at an early age.
This droodle is a depiction of a PB manuscript I've been working on for the last month. I won't say anymore about it but I will say that I'm really excited about it. I've never quite been a PB kind of person. Don't really like writing constrictions and parameters. And since these books are 32 pages, well, there's not much room for words. But. A big BUT! I've fallen for this tiny story and can't stop thinking about it. Sure my wife is jealous about now.
