Not having an iconic illustrating style like the author, I had a very hard time figuring out how I was going to draw these dolls. In the end I fell back to the stiff "my head doesn't really attach right to my body" style that I developed in college for costume design classes. So then they also ended up in funny costumes. I made a dad, a grandma/nanny, a boy, a baby and a pet fox and octopus. Jonas worked on this project with me, and, as usual, I think his paper dolls came out much better. He chose to disregard the last set of instructions and finished his dolls off with watercolor. :) According to Jonas the one on the far right is a helicopter.
