Second look at a new charactor (or try try again)






















It's back to the drawing board for me. I'm still working on my first endeavor as writer/illustrator and have gotten some very helpful critiques. It's great to sit here in a cabin in Colorado and thanks to the internet and Face Book I'm able to connect with generous agents, editors and publishers who have been extremely helpful and encouraging.

So I'm tweaking the illustrations at this point after several rewrites and edits. Creating a book, much like raising a kid takes a village.

Please let me know if you like this version as opposed to the earlier one posted. Or not.

Rachel, I appreciate that! I'm trying to develop a more kid friendly look so it's nice to get some positive feedback.

Second try is better. I like the more vivid colors and the friendlier face. I may be bias because I'm one of you long time fans. Keep working on it I think you have a good start!
