Nice. It has the feeling of a Chinese painting. The artist did a great job.

I'll say Lynne Naylor, though I actually have no clue. I want to see more of her old work, or stories if you have any.

Great clouds! Also, that blue tree looks like it's really enjoying itself.

Niki: Lynne did character layout on this project. BGs were designed by myself with John K. I am still not sure about the painter but most likely it was Laura Lizak or Christy Maltese, both of whom worked on Beany & Cecil, right before this was done. I have a lot of Lynne's work from other projects, mostly xerox copies of layouts.
