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!
