    Hi all, thank you for submitting entries to this contest. I loved all your entries and am impressed with several. I am in the midst of making a decision and will reach out to a few of you to clarify a few things. This is for a children's book and the winner will be illustrating the entire book. If you are NOT able to do this, please withdraw your entry asap.

      Rebecca - Although I think it fair to say we ALL entered this Contest on the basis of being prepared to work on the whole book, with that level of both personal and professional commitment firmly in mind - if our work isn't even worth rating for you - allow me to assure you - really. It's no trouble at all us pulling our work for you. Quite the contrary, in fact. Happy to oblige.

      All the best with this, and all your future projects. M : )

      PS - Can I just ask, for the purpose of clarification between yourself and whoever you do eventually award - are you actually the author of this book, or are you in practice more of an intermediary - a paid intermediary?

      Thank you for reaching out. I'm happy you did. I'm not quite sure about the outfit. I was looking for a more casual, less clothing outfit but I don't quite have something in mind. Even just a scarf around the neck is good.

    Dear Employer,

    First of all, i ask apologies. I started this project very late. I could not get much time for water fill. I have just filled with solid color.

    if you like the character and illustration, i will turn into water color. Waiting for your kind comment.
