Thank you so much ladies, for all your feedback. So appreciate it. I've posted a new version above (also added navy to the color palette) and a 2nd option below as well. Preference? Thank you :)

This is so incredibly adorable. I love the blue background in contrast with the bright pops of color.

Monica, since you asked, I think their snouts should be facing toward where the book opens rather than toward the spine, if they are all going to face them in one direction. If not, maybe the left row faces into the name following what you did on the bottom row and same with the right row? I like the kissin cousins and would like to see that as an option. hope this helps and sorry to be confusing.

Hey Monica, thanks for the note. I really love this new color palette. The navy background provides a nice contrast and really makes your adorable piggy illustrations pop. I agree that maybe the piggies should all be facing the same way, like what Carol said. Also, I'm not sure about the 2 piggies that are kissing. It seems a little out of place to me. Maybe either get rid of the kissing piggies altogether, or pick another set or two of piggies to have kissing as well. Then it will feel more like a pattern, and not so out of place... I hope that makes sense... Good luck, and if you need anything else, feel free to leave me a note. :) P.S. Thanks for letting me know about the possibility of a SoCal Mintie Meet-Up this fall. I've never been to one, so that is definitely something to look forward to!!

Mon, I like all piggies version and the new color choices! I think the spacing between piggie columns is a little funky though. The tail curl to piggie nose width should be the same for each right?

Omg, those piggies are so stinkin cute!! Not sure if you even need the random goats. I think they interrupt the rhythm the pigs have created, IMHO. Just so darn cute!!!

This is so adorable. I love your little piggies, and the color palette is perfect! I think I agree with Carol about the goats, though. Other than that, it looks great! :)
