These are some elementary school kid characters for a story book I am working on. Nearly all of the names are sourced from people I have known throughout my school life, some more directly inspired than others. ;) Check out my tumblr post for some more detail shots.

I wonder if you did a Kabalarian Name Analysis, for these characters/caricatures, how many would match?
Spooooooky Math Time!

They're really cute!
I found your blog accidentaly while clicking the next button on my blog.

I love your illustration, they're adorable and somehow reminds me of Quentin Blake's works.

I'm a big fan of Roald Dahl by the way.

I'm interested with illustration too and if you have spare time, please check out my blog : Aworldinsidemyhead.blogspot.com
