Water girl

I was recently asked by a designer at a book publisher if I was interested in doing a children's book about Ethiopian water girls. They were looking for someone who had a style that was contemporary, and an illustrator that was african american. I happened to have the right style and I am half Ethiopian (coincidence). Sadly, I had to submit a few drawings to show that I could take on the nature of a picture book and my styles a little to hip after it got to the higher ups.

Oh well, Next time! I got a pretty good drawing out of it.
