You guys are so generous, you've inspired me! 

Although it bugs me when people say "I can't draw flowers," or "faces," or whatever, it's true that I've always been bad at drawing cars. So it's not surprising (to me) that I've been unhappy with my renderings of the vehicles in this story. 

But seeing you all step up to the plate today has made me realize that I better do the same. So I'm going back and revising all the bits I haven't been happy with, starting with the cars. It's the least I can do to give you the absolute best version of this book that I can. I'll post the updated pictures as I finish them up, and you can feel free to tell all your friends what a standup kind of guy I am. :)

Thanks so much, everyone. You bring it, I'll bring it. That's the deal.
