Swing high into the sky and explore a world full of earthy and elegant colors with the girl in this story as she experiences nature with a twist of her imagination. After she’s ventured far away, she floats gently back down and heads home, where her mother is waiting.
Tricia Tusa’s lyrical story and rich, sweeping art create a stylish swirl of charm and adventure, perfect for anyone who’s ever sat on a swing and daydreamed.
Sketches from the Author
Thumbnail sketches help me to figure out the pacing of a book, and show the book in its entirety revealing how it works as a whole. They make clear the amount of variety from page to page.
Sketches from the dummy are drawn fairly quickly so that I achieve the spontaneity I want. This allows for me to get out of my own way.
I draw with my favorite pencil on tracing paper. I then Xerox these drawings, taping them together into a dummy. This is what I send to the editor.
I really wanted this book to have a very imperfect, hand-done quality. So, I decided to use an etching process.
I etched the linework into a plate, rubbing inks into the line. I then rolled the plate and paper through a press.
With this book, I wanted to convey, with as few words as possible, the feeling of connection to self--where all senses are fully engaged.
