HA HA HA HA HA!!!! This is the best! Your illustrations are so charming and adorable, I love it.

This reminds of a quote by Mitch Hedberg: "That would be cool if you could eat a good food with a bad food and the good food would cover for the bad food when it got to your stomach. Like you could eat a carrot with an onion ring and they would travel down to your stomach, then they would get there, and the carrot would say, "It's cool, he's with me."

Cutie-patootie! Wouldn't that be great, if we could all just be friends? Vanessa, you've been so incredibly sweet that I am giving you an award. Please stop by when you get a chance.

And congratulations on the book! I'll have to look for it.

elegraph said...

Thank you for your lovely comments on my illo!

LOVE your style and the colors you used. This illo makes me think about how my toddler has become just a little too picky about his foods. Maybe it's the foods who are picky about each other! ;-)

studio 3810 said...

I like it. Great.

Sarah Ackerley said...

oooh, ahhhh, I really like the colors and the flat quality here. Really nice.

Sarah Ackerley said...

oh, I mean to add. I feel like the table should be a little bit lower down, to keep the horizon line from being so close to dead center. Just an idea! Hope you don't mind a little critique here on IF.
