What a mother needs

In a family of seven, you can keep your flowers, cards and candy - mommy needs some sleep!

This is a spec sketch related to the mother's day card project. Let me tell you, it's a pain in the rear to draw SEVEN characters together (this is why illustrators charge by the figure!) and get the proportions even somewhat right. What I have here isn't great, but that's what roughs are for - figuring out the basics and going from there. If all goes well, I might have something to sell down the road!

Yes, it may be a pain to draw multiple characters, but once you get this right you will have one less card to design. Also, the Et clan seems better suited to that theme than any of the other families-except the Linkletters and maybe the Pingos. Deirdre definitely does mother duties (in addition to many others) and Ivy does those too (somewhat grudgingly). Then there's Sydney...

Love Tiffany's -poke-, and the twins' card. :-)
Even Gene looks concerned!
