I've been doing client work since I graduated from art school 5 years ago. So I'm pretty comfortable adapting to different art styles based on what's needed. But if you ask me what MY style is, and how I might approach illustrating a children's book, I have trouble answering.
I started illustrating a children's book a few years ago, but didn't get very far before the author asked for a style change and we ended up switching to just a few simple pen-and-ink spot illustrations. A different artist did the cover. The book is self-published by the author on Amazon:

Any feedback at all is totally welcome and appreciated!
I thought I'd also post some of my other work and see what your thoughts are - do you think any of the styles below could work in the children's book publishing industry? (Maybe if the subject matter were different) Why or why not?
Thanks for your time!!
