Tad and Vanzie A Pretty Mystery

The map for BAHA was for the front end paper. 
I always knew I would draw a map for the book.
I waited for the inspiration.
It wasn't happening.
Until I "started" last weekend.
Now, I'm mulling over the map for Pelago.
Did I tell you how much fun map making is?

 I always wait for inspiration before painting my altered book covers.
I got it.
I refined the old sketch and he became sort of pretty.
But I like him anyway. 
I haven't painted the original canvas yet because I don't usually like to do the same one twice. Or rather, I fear I can't please myself the second time. 
Anyway, I merged the two sketches in Photoshop and transferred it to the newly made book cover. 
Then I painted.
My Diary of Faces is now...
Tad and Vanzie
a pretty mystery

I Love All of IT!
