The assignment I'm working on is a VERY stylized illustration that would be used for a children's book. The guidelines are strict as to what goes into the piece and how it is to be done. It is supposed to be flat shapes, reverse perspective, 2 kids, 1 animal, a mode of transportation, landscape with 3 layers and a building. I'm working on it now- and maybe tomorrow (assuming I get it done tonight) I will share it with you. However; for tonight I'm highlighting 2 of the artists that I'm using as style references.

Second: Eric Sturdevant
