As you can see, some changes were made from the original sketch: Janice is raising a tambourine and Zoot is playing his sax and angled inward instead of looking out to the viewer. Both changes are intended to redirect the eye around the image rather than following Janice's eyeline off the edge. Previously, I thought about using a guitar to bounce the eye back into the picture, but Janice is a left handed guitarist, so the presentation wouldn't work. See, I think about these things every once in a while.

In other news, I wanted to mention my good friend, Tony Ley. One year ago, he started this crazy mission of celebrating a holiday every single day. This commitment demanded a lot of time and energy, but it also brought attention to all kinds of causes and silliness and acts of love. I even participated in a couple of the celebrations. So, what did he decide to do after that year ended? He decided to do it all again. Please take a gander at Tony's ambitious endeavor at The Celebrate! Project. You can participate as much as you want!
