I think the artwork is good, and nice to be targeted that to be little
bit cartoonish. But if we are going this way - no one will believe to
us that we making an bleeding edge system. However, this kind of
artwork is necessary to kids, if we ambassadors are going to schools -
so don't drop this work, make one sheet/or two sided flyers to have
the ability to gain interest for Sugar on the stick, and for early
introductions of Fedora. Btw, we don't have such spin where we giving
an complete Fedora based OS for kids (similarly like Quimo) with
parental control and such - but that time till arrives, might be
handy. Btw. The kids from the Soas banner can be resized and reused?

I like Sirko's work, mostly - except one part. The kid face/head shows
no emotions, and looks like an rag-puppet with wide, dulled opened
glass eyes, so needs to be changed I think somehow. Also I think if
the kid is painting artwork on the picture, then must be a little bit
paint spotted on it's clothes - or some paint drops next to him, and
put the text on painting canvas and scaffolding to show what was the
hard work. Furthermore we have to target not only guys, else girls
too.... So the same way we could have an amabassador, and several
other role sheets if we put something else the the kid hands (like
books for docs team, etc)? So we could have series of info sheets for
different roles. What do you think guys?

PS: for steps - we have the nice phase boxes:
