    Reminds me of Mo Willems’ “Sheep in the Big City,” obviously.

    I find her characters from personal projects have such warmth and delicate charm that Pixar (in general) lacks.

    • Mike Rosado

      Agreed. It’s the hand-crafter tactile element of these drawings that bring the charm. If only we had powerful producers in the biz who understood and nurtured that for the visual presence of feature films.

    Super stellar work. its very “innocent/pure”.
