I have had a little hiccup (hiccough is awful, ok?) in my picturebook. Not really a hiccup, but some really excellent advice which has stopped me in my tracks and made me wonder how on earth I am going to solve this! I have been pondering and worrying and frowning and then, finally today, I have a couple of hours to sit down. Procrastination is perpetuated and fought herewith: I’m writing a blog post, drinking a cup of tea and trying to ignore my mother’s texts. But, as I do so and as I get out my treasured pencil, sharpener and sketchbooks, it occurs to me, that the only way around this problem is to sit down and DO the work. Just like beautiful Benedict told us to, via Sol LeWitt and Eva Hesse: JUST! DO!
