THANK YOU everyone who entered this Naming Contest or shared it, or even just took the time to think about this illustration!!! I am so pleased with the response and flattered to have generated such wonderful and magical story ideas.
He would be wonderful as a Nicolas or a Mathias… or Perseus! All really great- But the winning entry not only had a great few lines… but 2 days later the contestant emailed me a FULL CHILDREN’S BOOK MANUSCRIPT. The story is full of light hearted fantasy, blended with astronomy, based on this little boy. It made me want to draw as soon as I read it.
God bless over achievers.
And the Winner IS…
LizzieBee! or.. Elizabeth Schwartz!
Thank you all so much – and Lizzie I will email you regarding sending this print with your words !
