Roughed in the cartoon poster, messed around with the edges of the frame, deepened the shadows and woodgrain on the right hand shelf, added some complexity to the variation of cad yellow light, Indian yellow and ocher, on the yellow case.

Doing the cartoon poster was a push-pull between the background and the drawing. A better draftsman than I would have plastered it with off-white and added the black outlines of the drawings after that dried, but it required serious effort to get the drawing right, even using a grid. I used some careful variations of neutrals and left the edges visible.
Eyes watering from all the pollen flying around, but it’s worth it. The whole city looks like a society wedding, or a baptist funeral, or small flower shop after a big delivery.
