A Peek Into My Sketchbook,...

Here are some random sketches not really in a sketchbook.
 Just a few loose sketches that escaped the throw away pile. 
You can't keep them all... but I'm glad that I held on to these.

Sometimes the quick concept sketch has more life
than the ones you labor over for hours. This is one of those little gems. 
This was my very first vision for "Daddy Did my Hair Today" 
Still my favorite.

A taste of my latest book...

Rex and the Fly 

by Lisa Workman

Rex was resting on a rock when by chance he did spy 
buzzing around his head, a teeny, tiny, little fly. 
He was feeling kind of hungry so he thought he would try 
to make a little snack of that little black fly.

He chased that fly until he needed a break.
Then he passed by Sally with a great big chocolate cake.
Sally said, “Get that fly right out of your head!
Forget about it! Eat some chocolate cake instead!”
