Artist Research: David Elliot & others

Thanks to Alice for the links to some illustration work to inspire me with my animatic and character designs. My favourite one was illustator and author David Elliot, he has this friendly vibe about his characters/work but they are really simple. His work also seems dreamlike to me which if I can create a dreamlike vibe about my 2nd act may be a nice touch and happy end to my character's life. I know my pirate isn't supposed to be friendly but the pirate below inspired me in regards to my pensioner character. Some other illustrations by Elliot as well as other artists have inspired me in regards to my characters too.
