This is great. I really like your style! Looks like you do some great, fun work. I'd love to get into children's book illustration myself one of these days.

Just wanted to let you know I liked your stuff, and enjoy your blog.

I loved Richard Scary and this totally reminds me of his work... if I squint real hard maybe I will see the Gorilla stealing those bananas or that little worm... what was his name? Bright and colorful, really nice illustration.
