Nengajo approaches

It'll soon be time to organise some new year greetings, as is the custom in Japan. Over the last few years I've tended to follow the Chinese animal calendar with images, next year will be the Year of the Boar (often misinterpreted as pig). This (Dog) year I copped out and used an illustration from one of my books, but here's what I came up with in previous years.

Nice blog, and great illustrations! I found you through a blogger groups post where you explained how to auto-size your profile image. Thanks!

Love the line of them, that monkey is something special!
BTW, I hate to be gloomy, but children's publishing really is in a slump from what I hear, and there are more and more mediocre books being put out, to play safe for Waterstones...nearly all of my work is coming from America at the moment.
