Mushroom Girl

Remember this girl?

Well, my agent asked me to create a series of illustrations based on that character. I'm still working on the series, but here is one of the finished pieces. I'll post more soon.

Why do they make rolls this big?

Yesterday I went to Utrecht to buy gum tape (for stretching watercolor paper). I sauntered over to the tape section, and behold:

(dimensions: 4" x 200' x holy hannah)

"Uh, do you have any smaller rolls?"

"Nope, that's the only size we carry."

"Who on earth needs this much watercolor tape?! And who needs it this thick?!"

. . .

Apparently me.

I can now stretch a 50' x 50' sheet of paper. Watch me do it.
