Oddly proud of this illo for a worksheet. My challenge: make it look like something you could actually see in a textbook--an "exciting" not-exciting pic.
I will say, though, that Japanese textbooks usually have killlllller art direction. Quite jealous of what the jKids get to work with. Perfect comparison is my learn-Japanese textbook, they got one guy to illustrate it all and it's some of the most boring art you'll see in Japan.
