Once I get going doing spot drawings it’s hard to stop me. Overall, I must have done fifteen or twenty spots for Yitzi and the Giant Menorah. But only a handful of them ended up in the book. The others are either still on the walls of my studio or buried in a sketchbook somewhere. But I never view ‘extra drawings’ as wasted time. It’s part of my process to make a lot of drawings and then pick the best ones to go in the book. Also, sometimes the one that goes in the book is one that I could only have drawn after I drew another spot that didn’t make it to the book – if that makes any sense!
