Sketch booking in Mexico, 2014

My family and I just got back from an amazing trip to Mexico with some other creative-folks that we knew to varying degrees to begin with, but now know them not only as wonderful, excessively talented people one-and-all, but also as dear friends.  Thank you Cassie Clare, Josh Lewis, Holly Black, Kelly Link, Gavin Grant, Sarah Rees-Brennan, (and Ursula!) for the invite and the creation of such a battery-charging retreat!

While there, so many story ideas, projects, and plot-lines were being bandied about that it felt like there were dozens of people staying with us!  I did a little bit of brainstorming of my own on various things I want to work on, and also, all the while, I was drawing in my sketchbook for fun.  Here are some of those pieces:

Prior to the trip, I also did these couple of sketchbook pieces based on actors in the show BANSHEE:
