GREAT NEWS! The shipment from Latvia arrived! Took long enough – that’s for sure… but the box and it’s valuable contents were totally unscathed. Sent an email to Aija to let her know, and she replied to tell me that she had been praying for one week straight, in the hopes that the shipment would arrive safely…well that explains why I hadn’t heard from her at all during the prior week!
Sent an email to Aija and she doesn’t seem too concerned about the illustrations getting to me. She seems pretty confident about the security of the package – although I can somehow feel that she too is a bit concerned about the shipment getting here. Well, being concerned is a trait that sometimes we can’t ignore.
Well we’ve been going back and forth quite a bit with various tweaks and changes, but we’re definitely making progress – very exciting indeed! And to think, this is all being done through a computer – haven’t ever spoken on the phone still!
The first draft sketches of the characters and scenes are here! Marvelous! A few changes, questions and requests and we are moving along.
We’re now really moving along with emails going back and forth to get the characters just right. Many of the other tiny details besides the characters themselves are coming up.
