I like the doodle but OUCH! You're too cool as well as too good of an artist to be fishing for compliments so I assume the Loish-icon comment has to be sincere. Lois van Baare is good--under statement; I love her work but not exclusively; I love yours as well. You guys have different strengths and weaknesses. Loish's use of color can be fantastic and some of her expressions are striking but there are too many that have excess botox injections. Yours are more real--You have a talent for imparting--bestowing--feelings to your subjects: impatience, boredom, angst, irritation, hope etc that is more three dimensional, similarly as well, a real gift for evoking humor with just a small eye movement or posture. Ms. van Baare is not going to make it as a sequential artist--is that a by-product of animation training? She prolly has more art out there because most of it does not have copyright issues attached. I shall be happy to buy and love two $30-50 sketchbooks from you as well. No, she does not have to worry but then neither do you. Embarrassingly but sincerely submitted for all to find fault with.
