IF:PARADE



The Small Billy Goat Gruff was unaware that the Troll was about to rain on his parade. Crossing the bridge would not be so easy!


This is a stretch for this week's IF.  However, I am happy to be making progress on this dummy book. I will be adding the text after I am finished. So the bridge may seem a bit much, but that's where the text is going to be.
I am painting birdhouses at the moment to give myself a break from the troll and goats.

Have a great weekend!

Heather said...

It's really looking good. Are you going to do the whole dummy in color? I love how little and tentative that goat looks and the troll sleeping. Very nice set up.

Edrian Thomidis said...

Thank you for all the comments.

Heather, yes, I plan on making the dummy in full color. I figured, why leave anything to the imagination, right? So, this will take a while to finish.
