I also had Jeff add a blue background (shown below), but I decided that the white background (above) looked better. Made the characters stand out more and the colors pop! So the final cover that I chose was the one above, with the white background!! Not sure if you also noticed the subtle change in the position of the mouth...in a previous image, the mouth was dropped down just a bit, but I had him raise it up to make the boy's appearance look a little younger
I like to DREAM big and HOPE even bigger!
