Jim, these would all make amazing illustrationsthe first one especially, that's such a brilliant ideathe way that you've figured out the type, I didn't even realize at first what you were doing with it, but that's geniusif you carried through with this it would be exciting to see how many little details like that you'd be able to fit in, things seen in a different light. not at the loss of the simplicity of the image though... it's so adventurousthe only thing that seems off to me is the scale of the kids. the way that the girl is smaller makes her look like she should be behind the boy, but then obviously she's slightly in the foreground. if you maybe moved them apart a tiny bit, or had some overlapping so you didn't have that tangent with the edge of the map and the collar of his sweater, it could clarify their relationshipthe christmas piece is so heartwarminghow you've repeated that modified stitching pattern in each element, even the treei love in the last piece, the strange perspective. it reminds me of the one you did of the kid dragging that huge rock through the stream. it's really great. I almost wish there was something going on in the background to fill up that empty space, but nothing too overpowering. maybe even a nice slightly textured paper would be enough.
