This is fantastic, I'm making up a story in my head as I see this. You should illustrate childrens books. If I was a kid again, this would be a picture I'd hold dear and remember for the rest of my life
Wow people, I'm blown away by the amount of feedback in my inbox. Thanks so much, and thans deviantart for picking this one as a DD.
For those asking about the story - For me it was the nicest of the submissions I read that were published in the magazine. But I'm afraid there is only a portuguese version, and I'm not sure I'd be able to share it online. Sorry if that's disappointing :-\ But thanks so much for your interest, and I think the author would be quite happy too!
