Ruth Sanderson's Golden Wood Studio - Welcome. I am happy to share the process for creating the cover illustration of my upcoming book A CASTLE FULL OF CATS, due to be released in early 2015.
Yes, it takes almost a year for a publisher to produce a book after the artwork is delivered. I’ll be doing lots of sneak previews during the year. As you can see from my initial storyboard sketch, I envisioned the cover as a view looking out a window with cats watching the outdoor activities from the inside of the castle. At the next stage, I created a more detailed cover sketch to focus on the queen’s “favorite” cat. I also depicted the cats and kittens in a much more active and playful role, indicating the queen and the king outside in the garden. In the final cover sketch, I brought the queen’s cat closer to the center and looking directly at the reader while still allowing the queen and king to be seen through the window.
A note—The marketing folks asked that the title be changed. Above is the final image with the blue wall. Golden dreams, Nadia Sanchez: Art by la fée déglinguée. CGS Artist Profile - Linda Tso. While the world outside has a rich collection of reference, there is nothing like the web as the source of searchable visual reference, and Linda Tso takes advantage of that resource for mood.
“I've saved a lot of beautiful images and paintings from the web,” she explains, “and I like to browse through the folders when I have nothing to do. As much as things like music and writing inspires me as well, it's the visual queues that make the greatest impact, and that includes movies, dreams and magazines of any kind. Dreams do inspire me, and if I don't dream I'd somehow feel the time I spent sleeping was wasted. Mirror reference and some quick photos of myself are a help sometimes Also. Then there are the Loomis anatomy books.” Linda Tso creates all her work, from sketch to finish, on the computer. Future For the moment, Linda Tso wants to just keep working on her skills, hopefully broadening the areas she is proficient in. Related links:Linda Tso's Website.

Yes, that’s right, I just said I’m excited about wax….what of it? I’ve been diving more seriously into the world of casting, and I like some of the creative doors that the process opens up. I wanted to start creating my originals from something other than the expensive brass that I’m used to using, but I needed the tolerances and machinability that I’ve grown accustomed to. I’ve found a couple of professional grade materials that will work great! The blue stuff is really rigid, and is referred to as “Machinable wax”. The red wax is called Protowax. Casting metal can be a long tedious process, but I think it’s safe to say I’m used to that. Linda Ravenscroft Enchanted fairy art.
