What a wonderful illustration, Anthony! I love it as it is. The froggy boots are my favorite along with the little girl's expression. Well done.

I like the graphic treatment-cool beans!

Anthony, I think we need more information. I went to the site, I had a very hard time telling what was going on.
I found no real information.
Help us,by letting us know how to
maneuver the site.Where do we go to vote!~~~Amy~~~

OH! You're THAT guy! I did the zebra berries for Mommy illustration for the ABC contest. I thought your illustration was just the tops! If it was just an illustration contest, I would have been hard pressed not to vote for yours!
