Turn, turn, turn

My niece, Crystal from memory. A friend and I were pitching an idea for an animation project to a local would-be entrepreneur who needed a new way to lose money. I was using my niece and nephew as character models- I think this is left over from that.
My memory of the pitch boils down to one image: our audience was a middle-aged Asian man who scratched his feet through his dark nylon socks during the entire presentation. Scritch-scritch-scritch. He liked the story, but the kids were too "homey", I should cute them up a little. Yeah, I'll get right on that.
Now Crystal's 20 and studying Microbiology and has the riches of the earth at her feet. I still draw pictures that aren't quite cute enough.
