The scribbley, scrawley good stuff

The latest additions to my illustration portfolio are complete. I have attemped to take the advice of my agent and work to a similar technique to that of Bruno Merz. I have, however, not decided to take up the practice of music in the hope that my house might stand a little longer.
The first illustration is based on my own story about a disadvantaged giant and uses rougher outlines than I'm used too. The trees are drawn in a style similar to Bruno's and so I think I have at least moved in the right direction. The second illustration again is based on my own story about a young girl who has a potion for every occasion. These are not Bruno Merz illustrations but just take a little something from his work.
Take a look at the above links and compare. I would be very interested in your opinions and so please do comment.
