The Neighborhood’s Night – Page 15

Page 14 doesn’t have an image, so we skip on to page 15 from The Neighborhood’s Night by Juliana Catherine. This is the last illustration and the end of the book.

It’s not a completely happy ending because, even though Leena’s back in her own home, Amaya’s family lost their house. This is supposed to be a “tough subjects” series, so a not entirely happy ending is appropriate. But it’s not all bad because Amaya has sent Leena a letter saying how they found a place to live and are doing okay. They even sent pictures.

I made sure it’s the same couch and wall as page 4 so it’s definitely the same house. It comes full circle.

An illustration for page 15 of The Neighborhood's Night by Juliana Catherine.  A girl curled up on her couch leans back against her mother who is sitting beside her.  The girl is reading a letter and the mother is looking at some photo prints.  They are both smiling.

Recycling Book – Page 7

Here’s an image that appears on page 7 of a coloring book about recycling commissioned by Positive Promotions for Earth Day.  I don’t think I quite hit the character consistency as well as I could have on the girl on the left.  Her cheeks really should have been a little rounder.  Casualty of this being a rush job.  But I really like how the overall scene with the tree and the swing and such turned out.
