Got up this morning and took another run at two images for the book.
And then, I did another take on the Kid and his mother.
I asked a few friends to weigh in on the two takes and here's what they said:
"I like the warm colors vs. the starker black-and-white of the scratchboard. I also like that her eye is OPEN in the painting.....like she is looking BEYOND Billy into a dark future."
"I like the etching best."
