Checkers


Yesterday I didn't do my daily drawing because I did this instead. I had begun to set things up a while ago, but knew I needed to figure it all out before I could send out my latest batch of promotional cards.

Anyway, tonight all I did was play. This was supposed to be just a black and white warmup sketch for work on the final pencil sketches of the book, but ... I got distracted.

When I was a kid, I used to visit my cousin Meghan in Erie. One of the ways we passed the time was playing checkers. I remember that her set was missing pieces, so we'd pull hard candy out of a dish on a coffee table and use those instead.
