@Thrace-Shirley-Mears Thank you for the info.
Here's my submission (my very first!!):
Carlos creates illustrations that range from the whimsical to pop-culture references. He loves drawing caricatures and exploring different pen techniques to create new takes on classic characters. He hopes that his art makes you stop and take a breath to notice something you hadn't noticed before. That his work might help you to be aware of life.
Here's the print ready to go to it's new home:
Here is the final comparison. Thank you all for your wonderful feedback. My wife loves it.
I've spent too much time on this, the colors seem weird to me. I don't know if I like the baby deer. Any suggestions will help. Thank you.

I wanted to start a cheerleading area for everyones projects. Pretty simple. Write down what you are working on and then give us updates as you reach milestones.

@Will-Terry great feedback. I will keep that in mind about the small, med, big for compositions.
@bharris yeah, it's definitely a great way to get back into drawing after a large project (sometimes even during one). I remember reading Thomas Edison saying that it was good to work on small unrelated projects when there was a wall to overcome, to free your mind and then attempt the big project again.
@Leontine yup, that's it. although they usually only feature more recent prompts (via Twitter).

Just wanted to share with you a Twitter community I found a year ago. You can also post to Instagram but the featured artwork must be submitted via Twitter. Link: https://twitter.com/Sketch_Dailies
It's called Sketch Dailies. Each morning there is a prompt and you can submit a drawing.
I'm proud to say that I've been featured a couple times last year and it was really encouraging. Check it out if you are ever in need of inspiration or need to unblock illustrations.
@Rich-Green thank you, that was my wife's touch with the string. she really gets the best out of me. and they did really love the gift and let me know how great they thought it was. I'm always afraid people won't like my work and then they shower me with compliments, it's so weird.
