Country Fair

For my first children’s book, I spent a fall sketching country fairs in New England. I drew huge bulls, huge pumpkins, and lots of pies. I liked watching oxen pulls. Also log chopping and sheep shearing. What interested me most may have been different from the reality: fairs are a mess of fried food and funnel cakes and spilled soda. When I came home from the fairs I headed straight to the shower.
