Color Sketches from "Baby Moose Visits"

Here are a couple different versions of baby moose.  I'll probably go for the more characterized version on top since he'll be doing some goofy things like jumping on the bed and making mischief.  I didn't think a realistic drawing like the one below would fit as well with the humorous subject matter.  I also wanted slightly disproportionate legs - extra long and clumsy (the art director suggested this too).

These are both fabulous, Paige! I agree that the top one is fun, fun!!!! Although, I really love the bottom one as well. I've never seen a book about a baby moose so along with your wonderful interpretations I'm sure this book will be a big hit!!
