I was proud of several things on this one. The wheelchair, the leaves, her face at that upward angle. I think she’s enjoying herself.

This one was fun. He’s cute, throwing that snowball. And drawing winterwear feels so warm and cozy. I enjoyed drawing the little detail on the hat and gloves so much that I went on to decorate several more characters’ winter wear the same way later in the project.

Representation of queer, or at least non-traditional, gender expressions was an important part of this project.
So far, we’ve had some characters that were deliberately ambiguous on gender, presenting as more-or-less androgenous. Today’s character is a little different. They’re wearing traditionally female clothing, but their hair and facial features are drawn using visual cues that typically read as masculine. However, I tried to make it ambiguous enough that it still wasn’t entirely clearcut. Personally, I’d hesitate to guess how this child identifies. I’d have to ask for their pronouns.
I’m not certain I got the age to read quite right. They may look a little older than they should.

Moving on to the adults for this batch. She has a nice outfit, doesn’t she?

Glasses and a checker-printed shirt. I think I tried to give him a Hawaiian shirt, but the client didn’t want to overdo those in this batch.

Our first one in this batch with a larger body type. Also, with an intentionally undefined gender identity. My daughter has this style of haircut. This is the last one in this batch in the 7-9 age range.
