Illustration Friday - "Canned"

For this weeks Illustration Friday I'll share a spot I finished 2 weeks ago.  I was going to do a new one but this worked out perfect for the topic of "Canned".  It was done for curriculum for a 2nd grade english book.  It's one spot in a series of spots for a crazy story about a mom who keeps her kids in a can of peas- kinda freaky huh?  I also attached the rough...and I don't know why.

Here's the rough (note the text) -man I have horrible handwriting.  Being an illustrator shouldn't I have nice designy handwriting?  If it weren't for fonts I'd be in a bad place:)

Real nice work on your blog! You have great style, vaguely retro, reminds me of the wonderful Little Golden Kids books of Pixar films. It's also good that you include preparatory sketches in your posts, I love to see illustrators process. Will bookmark for sure!
