I've tried to whiten these sketchbook pages, but to no avail, so I'm posting them anyway. Believe me, they are white pages, not gray!
I'm working on illustrating a children's book about bugs, so I went to the library to see what I could find for references. Oh my gosh, I found more than I bargained for! I got distracted and spent an hour just reading about various bugs and their habits, it was fascinating! Then I did some sketches. It was a bit challenging for me since I'm squeamish about bugs, and yet I had to find a way to make them cute. I also wanted them to have a different look than what has already been done by Disney/Pixar studios. After a bit of tweaking and reworking, I got into the groove and had a lot of fun. I'll post the end results later on down the road.
