Eloise & Roger under the misletoe, or why I don't draw men more often

I wanted so badly for this to come out right, because I love the idea (and I had the picture of Eloise, foot raised, in my mind) but I just can't draw flapper doodle men. He's so stiff and cartoony! (and I didn't even draw a mouth! I don't know how!) And what is up with that hair?!

I thought I'd show this to you anyway, though. Now you know why Eloise and Ramona's boyfriends seem to be at home every time they're out having fun!
