i dig the branching out into a new style. i've been a firm believer for a while that children's art has been seriously neglected as an avenue for meaningful expression to both adults and children. there's so many possiblities. i get so pissed going to the theatre and having to endure 20 minutes of previews for crap like 'chicken little', 'over the hedge' or 'ice age 2'. except for the pixar flicks, we've really lost the impact of what children's stories can do. i think you've really hit a chord for me with this piece.

I like iit Phnil. The first thing that I notice is the playfulness of the two characters in the foreground, but the background is what really strikes me as i continue to look. The scale of the mountain layers and the shape of the peaks is odd but don't seem to be unbelievable somehow. It reminds me of the scene at the end of C.S. Lewis' "The Last Battle" when the characthters go onward and upward as they continue to unwrap the glorious layers of paradise.
I also like the moon. The night sky is earth-like and makes the picture seem at once playful, profound, and somehow familiar.

interesting how a seemingly simple piece- with no real intended meaning- can begin to take on a life of its own and mean different things to different people. i didn't really expect any responses to this one- but i am smiling.
- i think what i am learning is i need to play more.

This reminds me of Cri-cri, a character well known in México.

felipe, por millonesima vez te digo, estoy mas que seguro que podrias vivir de esto, que mejor que poder hacer lo que te gusta y que eres bueno y ademas poder ganarte la vida. necesitas explorar no solo las posibilidades de expresar, si no tambien las de exponer en algun lugar. no creo que tienes esa habilidad por azares del destino, esta ahi por algo, sacale provecho.
