Dueling Images

So this is my problem. I start off drawing books with the full intention of treating them loosely; I do a couple of things that I really like and all of a sudden I tighten up for as long as the book lasts. In this spread, for example, the two images do not relate at all. We have a head and a wrapped cross (for Lent). Contrast that with the elderly gentleman and the slightly more elderly dinosaur. I had the drawing of the man and I also wanted to do a dinosaur. So I made them go together.
