A page from my sketchbook with digital colors. Drawn while I was in Paris last month for the release of the French and German editions of my book, Relish. 
Since then, I’ve also been on a short school speaking tour, planned quite a lot of my wedding, dealt with the death of a family friend, and moved house with John. It’s been a looong Polar Springtex. 
Now I’m sifting through sketchbook stuff from the last month or so. This turned up! Paris object celebration sketches! I like objects, though the gendered French objects somewhat confound me.
New desk setup, new drawing to share!

I was in New York City last week to meet with my publisher, and did what I always do in New York: made a beeline for Kinokunya the minute I had some free time. These are some lovely oversized Fullmetal Alchemist volumes, published in Japanese that I’ve been collecting. I think they’re absolutely gorgeous. They’re considerably larger than regular manga (the better to see Hiromu Arakawa’s beautiful artwork) and contain the original colour pages from the manga serialization. There are also more chapters in these volumes than the original release (volume 18 is the completion of the story, the original publication goes up to volume 27). The dust jackets also come off to reveal character sketches on the covers. I can’t read Japanese, so if anyone’s kind enough to translate the notes handwritten on the covers, that would be incredibly cool. 

… a bit of an indulgence for the Fullmetal Alchemist nerd in your life. ;)

We were obliged to strongly resist the urge to kidnap these from Faith when she turned up at our office with them.
