Looks good! I'm not sure you need the black outline on the speech bubble, and I would decrease tracking on the "Wahoo!!" Maybe even add some transparency to the white bubble, so it's not as bold. I would definitely share on the Forum for feedback, though, because 28 people were liking Version 8 - I would ask 8 vs. current? I really love your illustration and want to see it do well!! Good luck! :)

I like the type at the bottom. One more suggestion/idea - maybe the type at the top could be in a speech bubble...like the deer is shouting "Holiday Party at the Larsens - WAHOO!" or something like that? That would draw your attention to that type first, without it having to be so large, plus it would be part of the illustration? Just a thought. :)

I really like the white border Chris ... gives everything a bit of balance.

Thanks, Chris! :) If you do go with the balloon, I'd soften the edges of it (more oval?) and fill it in with white. I would also consider using one font in the balloon, and make the type smaller - it doesn't have to be large if it's in a big white balloon because the balloon will draw the reader's attention there. If the balloon is small enough, you'd still have room for the white border. Just my two cents. :) You can always solicit input on the Forum, too, if you'd like other opinions. Between the two shown now, I prefer the one currently submitted. Good luck!!!

LOVE your illustration!!! Just a thought - it might look good with the header ("Celebrate / Holiday Party at the Larsen's") where it is, but with the party details in one line across the bottom (move the car up and put it under the car). Not sure if that would look right, but think it may look more balanced? or the party details in the bottom right? Just some things to try. I also love your "'tis the season" on the side of the car - great details!!!

What about bringing everything in a bit and giving it a white border to the edge Chris?

Bahahahah! I LOVE your animal drivers! Have you tired the text in white? It's not standing out enough for me in the red.
