WOW, sorry about not posting, I was doodling lots, but not managing to do much else. I'm a little stressed out at the moment, and my immediate response to stress is to SHUT DOWN. Which is something I'm working through, since obviously it's not a very desirable quality in an illustrator.
Happy Birthday Mr. Sendak, you're one of my favourites. I'm going to be Max for halloween, that's how cool you are.
