March mailer

Here's my part of my agent's March mailing!
The top part is from "Grandaddy's Season" by Gwen Lavert. The bottom has in inset from my Christmas card, and a scene of my "Mouse and Elf" characters fishing for cheese out of a mousetrap. They're hiding behind a boot so they don't get whacked when the trap springs. :)

Initial drawings have so much looseness, so much life. They are free from any expectations, and filled with so many possibilites.

Who are they? What did they just go through? Are they now friends, and weren't before? Did this girl just make the team?

The laundry basket - are the kids pitching in only because a parent is ill or has left? These thoughts added a melancholy feel as I was drawing, letting my mind wander.
