The bathroom scene was looking unfinished, but I just changed it recently. I was feeling that the library was looking so much more complicated than the others and the bathrooms white walls were bothering me. I added stripes to make it feel more closed in and I think that helped. I am feeling unsure of the first illustration. It has a certain disjointedness to it. When I started I was not sure how I was tying everything together, but now that I have a better idea of who this family is and how color themes change from room to room I think that the girls bedroom is not defined enough. If the parents have hand in the designing of all the rooms then their children's bedrooms should feel more special. Maybe I am over thinking. Well, I will reassess when I have finished the other rooms, but so far so good.
(The New Yorker cover is just hanging on the wall because that is where it lives and I was feeling too lazy to take it down. I realize it looks a bit out of place.)

I am officially in love with Kickstarter. I had never heard of this amazing website and today a customer who works in promotion....and I think production....told me about it and said she would support me when I was done with my book. I do want to send it out to publishers, but it would be super awesome to throw it up on this site and see what kind of interest there is. I am apparently super behind on the times.

Minor fail already. I am working on page 5 of the children's book so I did not make any new doodles today. Instead, here are all the images that will be on the reusable cup jackets I am having made. It will be reversible with 4 squirrels in total...how did I manage so many squirrels you might ask...well I am the squirrel wrangler.

In New York even the animals have clever clothing slogans.
I am spoiled by the fashion both adults and children. Sometimes I want to take pictures of the clothing little kids are wearing, but sadly, that is not socially acceptable....I will try to get better at my recall skills.
Going to try to post some illo every day...we shall see how long that lasts.
