Sometimes for certain illustration jobs, you are asked to compose your illustration in a certain space. In this case, this was a job I did for Triumph Learning. They gave me a very odd shape to work with. I had to be creative in how I fit things into the space. It was kind of fun because the odd shape made me think outside the box as far as my trees and bushes went, and I was able to come up with some fun shapes. If you've never had to do this before, try it sometime! Draw an odd shape, and then illustrate a Nursery Rhyme or another simple story you know and make yourself come up with a great composition within that shape. You may be surprised with the results!
