For the book Most People by Michael Leannah, I got to create a neighborhood full of characters. Many of them keep popping up throughout the book. When I was a kid I loved finding little details in illustrations. So on the last spread we get to peak in the windows and see how the people in the neighborhood enjoy their evenings - coincidentally they are things I enjoy doing - one of the perks of being the illustrator!

I imagine this guy dresses like a tough guy, but he likes reading sappy romance novels and sipping tea when he's alone. He also likes lacy pillows. :)
This guy is video chatting with his relatives who live far away.
Of course I had to add someone reading a story.

Sharing a meal with family and friends.
