Diggory Wombat Goes Flying Part 1


Way back in June, for his July birthday, my hubby asked for a follow-up story to the Diggory Wombat Gets Lost book that I wrote and illustrated for him. Unfortunately, my Muse wasn’t interested.

I hoped inspiration would strike, but finally decided in December that it wasn’t going to happen, and forced it. After months of dithering, I wrote and illustrated it in four days. That’s the kind of thing that happens when your Muse is a diva, lol.

This book was done in one of Hahnemühle’s ZigZag accordion books. The book is one long sheet, folded into 18 pages. I love working on this paper!

I’m sharing the story with you in serial fashion, two pages a day over a 9 day period. My writing is bit sloppy, so I’ll translate it for you.

PG 1: Diggory Wombat Goes Flying

PG 2: One morning, Diggory was watching a flock of birds landing and flying back into the sky. “Flying looks like fun!” he thought.

Stay tune for Part 2, tomorrow!

  1. I’ve been looking forward to the sequel. The first two pages are intriguing – flying? Of course everyone wants to fly. Can’t wait to see the rest of the story. Hope you and hubby had a wonderful Christmas, Sandra.

  2. I think that’s great and I know it’s a wonderful illustrated story.
    So far from what I see its great!
    I bet hubby is happy!
