I set aside this little guy for about two years because I wasn't sure how to color him successfully nor if he was strong enough to be a feature. Once I got the coloring done with two cool greys and just the hint of light blue I knew I had been successful on the first front.
The secret to keeping him as a feature was to stay with mostly black and white as the background papers. Upon finding just a hint of green in the dotted paper I decided to use that as the bordering color. Some blank space in the upper right called to mind to fill it with a bit of foliage.
There's another good use for the "Hello Handsome" sentiment.
