Beauty illustrations for Family Fun magazine

I just received my copy of Family Fun magazine, and to see my pictures inside.  Family Fun is a US magazine*, mainly for families (obviously) and so has a lot of great childrens' illustration.  But, they also have a mom section, so that's why they looked to me.  

The article was about nail trends.  They were really keen to use my linear style, with a neutral background and pops of colour for the nail varnish.

Unfortunately, the ended up not using the larger image in the magazine, but theses things happen.

*this is my 5th US commission this year! - I'm presuming that the low exchange rate is encouraging savvy American art directors to save a bit of money.  And why not?!
