Japanese Style Ramona Quimby by Goldsickle Japanese Style Ramona Quimby by Goldsickle
My friend keeps mentioning about this book series and I can't help thinking how it would be just right for a slice-of-life style comic, similar to Yotsubato.

Just for fun, I drew my own version of Ramona, based on illustrations found in the books.

Aww bless, the eyes are perfect on those! Good ol' plasters on the knee are a nice touch too.

I'd actually never heard of this series till today, but from pictures i found you've brought over the look of the character really well. :)

Ramona would make a very good manga series. I remember reading the books I was in elementary school. They're really cute and funny. Nice sketch.

I remember Ramona the Pest! Sorry first book I read of hers. Along with Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing...or am I confusing authors again...

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing was by Judy Blume, yeah.

Beverly Cleary's website is here: [link]
Might give you a refresher course on what she wrote.

Judy Blume was the author who tended to write about the more challenging issues, and tended to shock people with her harsher realities. Beverly Cleary focused more on cheering people up and making them smile. Many people confuse the two, and it's not hard to see why, as they do write similar types of works, albeit in nearly opposite directions at times.

I grew up on Ramona myself so this is actually a really pleasant little surprise. I can see what you're talking about if these were graphic novels instead! Not a bad idea, and a cute piece of work at that.
