I did a preliminary sketch for my entry in Alicia Padrón’s book giveway. The theme is the importance of trees in celebration of the publication of the gorgeous book she illustrated, “The Wish Trees.” Her children will be the judges and chose the winner of the giveaway. Should be a pretty good test of how well one’s art is recieved by children, eh?

So, before I enter this drawing, I plan on adding color. But for now I’m going to try to get a little mileage out of my little tree dude.
