I wanted to share some sketches from a recent trip to England. My favorite thing to do in the world is take a few sketchbooks away on an adventure. This was a great trip! I got a lot of work done for an upcoming book project, but also had plenty of time to dream and sketch in London and the Cotswold countryside.
I’ve gathered a small collection of the many sketches I did on a trip to France this spring. Dave and I traveled to the Dordogne region to see the prehistoric cave art of Lascaux, Font de Gaume, and other caves. The experience of walking through these caves by flashlight and seeing these ancient paintings on the walls, especially in Font de Gaume, where we walked through the original cave and saw paintings dating back 15,000 years, was awe inspiring. I will carry the images of those sacred paintings forever in my mind.

I'm really excited today to launch my online gallery and shop which features prints of illustrations from several of my books and original art work. There are several images available now and I'll be adding more in coming weeks. Here's a link: http://litajudgeshop.com
