Really like this...

Think these two characters are destined for many adventures together.

Work has a charming innocence to it, that reminds us that artists are simply people whose imaginations never grew up.

'awesome-awesome', 'wonderful-wonderful', 'OMG, cool, simply beautiful' - everyone became so lazy that even those whose native language is English, restrict their comments to the template copy. I would like to give a comment using the poem of Peter Vyazemskij: "Я пью за здоровье не многих,

Не многих, но верных друзей,
Друзей неуклончиво строгих
В соблазнах изменчивых дней.

Я пью за здоровье далеких,
Далеких, но милых друзей,
Друзей, как и я, одиноких
Средь чуждых сердцам их людей.

В мой кубок с вином льются слезы,
Но сладок и чист их поток;
Так, с алыми — черные розы
Вплелись в мой застольный венок.

Мой кубок за здравье не многих,
Не многих, но верных друзей,
Друзей неуклончиво строгих
В соблазнах изменчивых дней;

За здравье и ближних далеких,
Далеких, но сердцу родных,
И в память друзей одиноких,
Почивших в могилах немых."

To be honest, I've never encountered an illustration as full of feeling as this. I don't know about anyone else, but to me it gives off such a sad vibe...! It's like the creature is nothing more than a hopeless, lonely child that has been isolated, and now it has found something beautiful. It has found color. He's not alone anymore. 

 And its almost-pleading expression is even more sad when it is compared to the boy and the dog's seemingly-frozen reaction. It looks as if the next moment they are going to run and then come back with pitchforks to hunt it down. 

 All in all, bravo!
