Mestioko's got great points! You'll adjust several times when the baby's there, so no need to sweat it right now. And another huge bonus of having kids: in-house focus group for your children's art! :wink:

Dan?! You mean you're gonna leave us hangin' like that?!? The images are sweet, and I have a particular liking for the rough border edges. Clearly marking off the panels, yet very sketchy too. Maybe the acting in the last two panels could be richer, and you could adjust the height of the characters ...

A lot of things changed from 1800 to 1850, with the U.S. partaking in the Industrial Revolution, coming out of a mostly rural way of life. So my first advice would be to focus on a smaller slice of time (one or two decades). For the fashion, Europe still heavily influenced the U.S.A. early on in you...
