The colors are very bright as is consistent throughout your work over the years. Fun storytelling I would imagine from the personality you get into your drawings.

Were you to ever change how you do things, if I may suggest, color control might be a useful thing to study where you mix your colors so they're not all 'speaking at the same time'. It may be appropriate for what you're doing with this, and the printing process you're using. I mean little kids like bright colors. They also have a certain energy that's hard to contain, as can be heard at recess in many schoolyards. So if it's fitting your audience, then that's cool.

You have your drawings exceptionally well done. :cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:

Thank you all for the wonderfull comments, It's really supportive to see and read how my collegues respond to my work.
The feedback from D Akey and M.Aster especially! I do know that my use of colors isn't according to the theory,but I always considered that of one of the things that defined my work.
Still trying to improve on that part of my work though......Hope that in the future this part wil improve....Same goes for my English...being an English teacher this schoolyear.. :-)
I'm absolutely in love with the lines that the Swedish writer wrote....I will print them and nail them to the wall!!!
I wish I could translate some parts of the text from the Rusty Knight into English..... Will try that in the next days..

Thanks again for all the feedback!
