I'm working on a new project taking random books from my bookshelf, picking out sentences and making some new books. I say random, although so far I have chosen some of my favourites including The Go-Between by L.P. Hartley (the above is a first draft of page one).
I'm going to pick a good variety of both fiction and non-fiction. I think the non-fiction will be interesting (and maybe easier) to work on because I won't already have a picture in my mind of the story or characters.
With The Go-Between for example, a book I know very well, I started drawing a little boy and creating a scene for him but I scrapped that because it was too literal. I want these books to be inspired by the words I choose, not the story I already know.
