I don't often comment on the obviously professional illustrators to be found here at IF...what can one really say about work that is so flawless? Here, I find your handling of light, dark and shadow so stunningly good that I had to say so. WOW! A perfect illustration, without doubt!

This is great! I can totally relate to it...I was the child who always hated her own birthday parties. This really captures that feeling for me. You have such an excellent technique!
