Adding Color

Now that I am done with the full roughs of the book, I’m prepping the pages for the printers.  That way I can hold it in my hands and get a feel or better sense of what adjustments will need to be made.

At the end of December I sent my roughs for Chewy to be printed, as a sort of year review
