I couldn't help it. . .November always makes me hunger for pie. Especially pies with stripes. . I think the traditional term is "lattice top." I like "stripy pie" better :)
Being 2nd generation Taiwanese, my parents never went the traditional route with Thanksgiving. Last year, we had Peking Duck. This year, I think we'll have sushi. Still, pie will always be part of the occasion. . even if it's me picking one up at the local Safeway. With my newly discovered gluten allergy, we'll have to be a little more creative. I'll let you know how it goes.
Art-wise, things have been crazy. The picture book is progressing well and I'm taking a picture book class taught by an art director of Chronicle Books. One lesson for all you illustrators out there. . .did you know that the end pages of a book can really screw with your page count!? Click on the image below to learn more.
I highly recommend taking a look at the difference between "separate/colored" and "self-ended" pages before planning out your book. . lesson learned, lesson learned lol.
