Picture book projects

The main focus for me currently is on my picture book development. The challenge of connecting a solid compelling narrative with a fully realized illustrative style that has expression, excitement, originality, and potential marketability is a big challenge for me. It is a daunting task to undertake, and stay committed. My struggle with it as always, is follow-through. There are no shortage of ideas and tangents. Rabbit-holes pop during every work session.
