    Just a couple of suggestions.
    Shrink the plane to just a small black silhouette
    Cut the chickens down to 3. Odd numbers are better than even numbers. So I would remove the one over the O in Coco and then see how it looks.

    The number "3" rule might also need to be done to the palm trees. So you may need to edit one of the trees out if you can and see how it looks.

    Thanks

    I changes one of the trees to a golf bag in the next rendition. The plane is now more cartoon but larger.

    Perchie Girl has offered to play with it. I was using trackpad on a laptop and MS Paint. She has better stuffs.

    I am excited to see what she comes up with.

    I Did drive 2 Red Cross Swimming Instrusters into addmitting they and the Red Cross were wrong. Not every body can float flat on their back. Back in the late 50's they all just knew that everybody could float if only they did (insert any number of differant things) I learned how to not move and sink to the bottom of the pool in front of there eyes :lau ;You should have seen some of the looks as I went under and stayed there (Yes, I kept my eyes open just to watch them, some of them got grabby, and it was funny)
