Animal Verses Human

Today I finished (I believe) all the drawings for this book of verses by Ken Mullen. I've been working on and off on this for many years. It'll be published early in 2006.

There is a lot of crayon/pastel here yes?
I am always interested to know how big your illustrations are also.
I like the elephant with the stampy foot the most, if you were interested to know.

Thank you, Alina. I really appreciate your words.
I am a firm believer in that drawings should have "personality" rather than "style". I am sure you may agree with me.
