Where I spent most of January planning, plotting, drawing and working, mostly on the illustrations for my second picture book. I'm still pinching myself I’ve been given the opportunity to illustrate someone's story, not once but twice now and a third book is patiently waiting. Illustrating picture books has been a longtime dream and a goal I'd been working towards however the opportunities came before I felt ready. I wonder though, do we ever feel ready? Perhaps not. It’s been important for me to remind myself, to stay open to learning and growing. Otherwise, I think fear would've become paralysing. In the face of a challenge, all we can do is show up and do the work as best as we can.
