I think there's a new trend in art commissions nowadays, that of making cartoonists do Letter Illustrations for children's rooms. I've already done a couple, a W for Justin Sherrill's kid, and a Z for art reps Scott and Rose Cates's girl, who has her own webpage full of the things. Click on the tiny Gallery button and you can see the neat Y is for Yeti by J.G. Jones (get it, he does the covers for Y: The Last Man...) among other great pieces. I'm currently weirded out by the freaky bumblebee child Richard Case drew. Are more people doing these things around the country? Does it just mean we're all getting old?
