Not quite sure if this one counts as a memory yet. This is a character from one of the novels I’m currently working on; it was nowhere near close to conception when I kept regular sketchbooks. So this sketch, in fact, was only done this year and is located in the back of the very same pink book that I wrote my third doll thermometer post about.
I won’t say much about her, given that I hope this novel – this novel – will actually (finally) be my first published – getting ready (once again) to hit up all the literary agents to see what they think. Got a cover letter I’m quite happy with, a two-page synopsis and the sample chapters all ready to go. What I will say, I suppose, is that she’s the sister of the protagonist (whom I have been entirely unable to draw despite several attempts) and most people call her Jo. And she’s meant to be darker – I fail at shading, so I must have decided to just leave it as it was.
And she likes chocolate.
