Still Working on Memory Bots

Hello and welcome back. I previous posts I showed sketches for a book on memory I am designing and (if they ever actually make a decision on something) illustrating. Well, here's a recent round of drawings I did for them. Not much new lately because they are slow to get back to me and slower to actually say what they are looking for. I don't know if you have ever gone through this but they can't make a decision because as they say, "Jeff your stuff is so good that it is hard to make a decision, each new drawing is great..." Alright I like compliments as much as the next guy but come on...just tell me what you're looking for, so of these are just terrible. Maybe they feel like because I'm the 'talent' that I'm fragile or something. We are all adults here, just pick something so we can move on.
Another bit of annoyance is the crunching out of new ideas only to find they liked the early stuff. Whoo boy, welp, work is work I suppose, and at least they LIKE my stuff. Too bad, I'm starting not too, yikes some of these drawings- I would have fired me. There was a pizza delivery job in the paper...
Er....Amara wants to play Elmo's Potty Time.
I'll post something more complete in a while, sorry.

Great to see you too. Sorry my voice was/is shot so I wasn't good at schoomzin with your folks. Had I been more vocal, I would have told them what a great student you are and how far you have come- your folks should be proud of you and your accomplishments. Again, those models you're working on are spectacular.
Thx, Wanna by a print? I guess I should post that up here huh?
