This reminds me of the Issun-bōshi. He rode in a soup bowl with chopsticks as his oars :]

Thank you for the lovely comment. I was trying to go for a storybook atmosphere, so it's encouraging to know that this is what you see in the drawing!

Thanks so much~~

I recently got asked to describe my drawings in words to someone who hadn't seen them before. I realised that it's really quite impossible to do this without the person concluding that I'm high when I produce these artworks.

But I suppose that's a good thing, because it means that they're original...? Hmm. Anyway...

Haha judged on your artwork I'd say it's a very good thing! Very original stuff.

Yes, it is! One of my favourite films, because I felt rather excluded from most of the Disney franchise as an Asian child.

Thanks so much~ It's really good to get feedback like this so I can know what's 'working' in a drawing; the composition for this drawing felt really effortless and I think it turned out quite strong because of that.

Thanks again for your comment; it's very very appreciated~
