the devil is in the details


I overlooked an important detail when I drew this illustration. Without any thought, I had drawn the kids barefoot. Oopsies. I worked on this assignment in the middle of summer, but it was to be published in the middle of winter. Not a good time to be barefoot! The publisher asked me to please put some socks on their cold little tootsies! I think that one small detail warmed the whole page.
