Sloshing around in pixels...

I spent most of yesterday playing around in Adobe and making my book cover. Who would have thought I could get a repetitive strain injury making a book cover on a computer? All that moving the mouse around and clicking with my index finger has given me a feeling close to pins and needles in my elbow - back to typing for me then...
Maybe I should have stuck to a traditional paintbrush, instead of sloshing around in pixels all day. I'll display it here when it's finished, but I ended up with the wrong shade of white in a big splodge, so I'll have to risk life and limb and edit it a bit more.

The next doodle book

The body of the book is now finished for my next doodle book, and with just the cover to finish and the blurb to write, I've contacted the printers for a quote... From this I'll be able to decide how many books to have printed. It feels like I'm on the home straight now.

Building a book

I've been busy formatting my next doodle book, inserting the pictures and doing the page layouts. It takes time to get the pictures in just the right place, but now it's all coming together.

I also had another on-line book order to send out this week, which is always good news.
