The alphabet as a happy family:

One of my favorite scenes:It was alot of fun to work on, coming up with different "personalities" for each alphabet. Adding little details such as lightning bolt "zaps" on the Z, plaid on the P, and making C into a cowboy. It wasn't long ago that I had these guys as sketches up on my wall. Now they are in color and in a book. I feel like a proud mama.
