Sometimes you just need to cheer yourself up a bit. I Drew this little fellow earlier this year when I was feeling a bit down. It brought a smile to my face when I was drawing him. And who would have guessed elephants also like balloons! :)

I Still really like how this illustration worked out. I'm still very happy with the colors and I like the pen lines here.

I Can't help being an optimistic pessimist.
I Made this comic to reflect my own personality. I Can see big troubles down the road but at the same time I try to be hopeful for the future and whatever it might bring me.
