    I’m so jealous you switched from science to arts. I love science but I’d rather work in arts… unfortunately I have no training and no ideas on how to go about it.. Cute car btw I really like the way you’ve done the trees in the back. Very unusual.

    thanks Tj, I just knew I wouldn’t be happy working every day in a hospital or in physical therapy (which is what I was going for), I love graphic design, I’m halfway thru a BFA, but I am really enjoying working on illustrations. thanks for your comments, I’ve seen a lot of trees drawn many different ways, and I love the whimsy style, I think it’s always great to have your own style or unique way of drawing things!
