I love walking, mushroom picking, painting and drawing in woods. I LOVE woods!
Whenever I go back to the Czech Republic I spend as much time as I can in woods.
Woods smell good and they are quiet, peaceful places to be. I get lots of ideas for books just being there.
If it was just up to me I would have a picture of woods in every one of my books!
My publisher won’t allow me. Enough is enough they say.
O.k. …I can’t blame them.Here are a couple of illustrations and sketches that haven’t made it into the books….yet.
Oh, actually this one did make it. It is from my book called ‘Dlouhá cesta’ (The Long Journey).
Here is a sketch of a wooden shack.
And here is an illustration from the book which is coming ..very…very SOON! And you know what? Most of that story is happening…in the WOODS!
