Stroll baby, stroll

I'm working on a storyboard sequence and after looking at a bunch of oh so inspiring images from "Cartoon Modern," I thought I would try for something a bit more stylized than my usual loopy line or oh so Disney-esque characters.  (Not that there's anything wrong with them...I just wanted something that ultimately would feel more flat and graphic.)
I'm feeling for the composition I should have something in the lower left hand corner.  Perhaps I'll have a car driving by.

What do you think sirs?

I think the composition is just fine. Doesn't need a car. I might move the woman slightly more to the right, so she's not quite so co-linear with the edge of that window, but overall I think it's a great sketch. Definitely suggests what you probably intend about both characters, as well as doing a good job of conveying the physical environment they're in.

My first thought was, add another guy in a suit, and the car - with driver leaning out, yelling, "Sing a hymn, elders!"

But that might be kind of "busy." :)

I know I had to have missed something in my time away in the last few months... what's your main objective with the daily doodles? Improving your abilities, I'm sure, but what else?

Does anything come back as a theme? A story you might desire to follow?

I think her daily doodles bring fresh life to the T.G.Blog. You can only describe the joy of punching someone square in the face so many times.

The sharp dressed man emerging from the alley looks like he's been frozen in his tracks by the business woman lost in thought or perhaps bored by the daily dull drum of her routine. Her purse has simple elegance, her hat suggests an unusual career, or a stewardess. The gentleman, emerging from his oh so uncommon alley, his residence probably borders it. There's not many cities where you'd see a garage, regularly used, located in such a clean and pleasant neighborhood. His unibrow draws attention away from his diminishing hairline. His hands look like an afterthought or he's an egyptian enbalmer.
