character exploration (continued)

I've been trying out a slightly different look to my illos of kids . . . a bit more simple and cartoony. I'm liking them so far, so probably more to come soon. I'm trying to find a style for the kids that will work better with my imaginary creations than my current kid illos do. Certainly not leaving the other style behind. Just expanding. :)

In other news: Joe Berger is BRILLIANT! And so too is Sara Ogilvie. Just got Hattie the Bad and Dogs Don't Do Ballet for my birthday and absolutely adore both books. Especially Hattie the Bad! It is such a good bad book full of subversiveness in the form of frogs, underpants, and orange paint.

In other other news: paper straws are incredible.
