Regarding my models

A couple of commentors have asked about the kids in my sketches. I'd like to take credit for finding these terrific models, but I really can only take credit for finding the book Facial Expressions Babies to Teens by Mark Simon on Amazon.com. It's an illustrator's visual reference of tons of headshots from a variety of angles. I like to loosen up by sketching some of the more amusing facial expressions. Drawing these kids is fun and helps me internalize a wide range of images of lively children. I recommend it to all children's book illustrators. There is also an adult version of the book.
