I wrote this comment just for you.

Thank you for sharing this project! I was directed here by a quick link from Michael Nobbs, during a time when I've been thinking about the same thing and working on a similar project.

I've been selling full illustrations at an introductory sale rate (raising the price slightly as I go). It's an experiment. Anyway, it's completely first come first serve, no prints. If an illustration isn't sold, the next person to buy one gets it. And if the next illustration is incomplete, then the first person to put money down on it gets it when it's done. The result is that early on, with the sale price so low, I was subconsciously drawing custom illustrations for people, thinking to myself, "Ooh, I hope they like this!" But I would not take instructions.

It's been a very eye opening exercise.

Thanks for sharing that, Fenmere! I found it to be eye-opening too. I also found that since I was drawing pictures in the books for (pretty much) free, it was liberating. Not having a monetary value freed me up to stretch a little, try something new, create something unexpected. To the casual viewer they may look like my usual creations, but for me it generated loads of new ideas.
