I couldn't stop thinking about all the white space so....

....I had to quickly run back to the computer to post something...anything!

These are just a selection of sketches I am doing for the book...Not exactly spot illustrations, just testing ideas...I don't know what to call them... Coloured scribbles??

This book is going to be special...
I'd call them colour roughs, though really there's nothing rough about them,and they are more than able to qualify as finals, in my opinion.

I am blinded by the white!!! ;)

(what was I thinking...Bad Maya!)

oooops..... I think my comment was lost in the Etha.

It said how much I love these little illustrations and they are far and away wonderful enough to be final pieces.

Perhaps we should have a challenge to paint white objects on white backgrounds for your new shiny white website Maya? Then we really will need sunglasses!

Hi Maya - lovely little illos - as the others say, they qualify as finished pieces ...
I like the new look, it really makes your pics come alive!

I think I'd call them 'color vignettes'. :-) (Although maybe they don't like that moniker - my comments keep getting eaten).

It'd be very fun to have greeting cards or post cards with clusters of these on them. Let me know when you're selling!
