Creativity birthed in the wee morning hours


Yesterday, Mr. Toast and I awoke in the early morning hours. Um, seriously way weeeeeee early morning - like 3:30 am! I'm not sure why we were awake and restless but we took advantage of the time and made our way to a new local coffee shop just a few minutes down the road from our cozy little home. It was utterly magical to arrive before the sun was up and snuzzle up in the corner by the window to sip on our favorite lattes.

One of the perks of getting up so early is getting to dive into my illustration work earlier than planned. So far, I've been able to keep up with the daily inktober 2015 challenge, while also finishing up some upcoming book projects. Stay tuned for a special, upcoming announcement in regards to my ongoing children's illustration projects.
