Preliminary sketch for the painting 'Never give your keys to a stranger', pastel on paper

I've recently added a written commentary on my book Rules of Summer to my website, you can find it here, also as a PDF. Of course, such comments may not make much sense without seeing the book or app first (for readers in the US, a nice edition is coming out in May), but for those already familiar with it, or having a special interest in illustration, I've tried to explain the inspiration behind each painting... if not necessarily the paintings themselves! I hope you find it interesting.
