Coco & Oscar

Hey there blog-readers,

It's autumn in Brooklyn, and what better way to celebrate the best of all seasons than with a post full of new characters?

Meet Coco. She's cute and silly and in desperate need of a best friend, someone to be the Selma to her Louise, the Laurel to her Hardy, the Robin to her Batman.

And then there's Oscar. He just wants someone to appreciate his love of checkers, tango, and the fine art of muffin-making.

Hilarity ensues.

And a few final images. A preliminary spread for the book -

Finally, in honor of the changing season, a few autumn related images of Coco & Oscar fun.

Gorgeous! I love your drawings :) Are you making a book of sketches, or about these specific characters?

Thanks so much! They're specific characters that I've been playing with for a bit, and I have a few stories in mind. I have one fully written, the second mostly untangled but not entirely down on paper, and the third still whirling away and churning in the grey matter.
