Two double page spreads for a children's book about protecting the rainforests from deforestation.

I know what you're thinking - ewww....nits are gross and dirty, and in truth, they kind of are, but I don't reckon it's fair that kids get teased about them all the time (in no way do I know this from my own personal experiences...heh). So I wanted to challenge people's perceptions of them by doing a children's book about a girl who gets nits, gets teased but eventually comes to term with it (by the way, that doesn't mean she decides to keep on being infested, her mum combs them the cuss out of her hair).
Well, I've had this blog for a while now and I think the time is right to actually post something on it, so here goes...
This is the first project I did this year in which things kind of clicked for me in terms of style and subject, also it's about Aztecs...Aztecs are cool - just watch Apocalypto (or is that Mayans?).
