Sudden Chaos!

As I said in one of my previous comments, I plan on selling a special edition of my book "Belle du Jour" that is going to include a bookplate with original art on it. I haven't figured out how many I'm going to make yet, though I'd like at least 100.
So I decided to "assembly line" them, do 10 at a time and use the same paint for each of that 10. This way I can get them done more quickly.
So to test this idea out I'm using my friends as guinea pigs (no offense). Instead of drawing in their books I'm doing the book plate thing for 'em.
Here's a few from the first batch.

After the con I'm going to set up a shop here on the blog so that the books can be ordered online. I'll try to make it as convenient as I can.
