Drawing my way through the story

Since I blogged SONY DSCabout research last time I thought I’d share a little bit of what the research for my next book includes. Using Google maps to refresh my memory about the prettiest Paris spots that I visited a couple of years ago is easy. One of the more difficult tasks is putting together a fictional fashion collection.

I’ve always liked drawing croquis and designing and sewing my own clothes, which probably explains why my protagonist wants to be a fashion designer. But I’m beginning to realize putting together an entire collection that revolves around a central theme is a lot harder than I anticipated.

I think quite a few more attempts will be needed before I nail it, huh? 😉 I have to get re-accustomed to using a pencil again. But it’s an enjoyable process.
