New day, new banner

HeaderSketchFall08
I was long overdue for a new blog banner, and a little design clean-up. Also, I played around a little with using a looser gouache background, and my 'new' eyeballs - I've been experimenting with adding pupils/whites to my character's eyes and so far I feel like it's a good direction, maybe not for educational work, but definitely for trade.

I have sketches in the works for the other 3 seasons so I can be ahead of the game come springtime when baby arrives. And now, back to working on a postcard!
