This is so wonderful! I don't believe I've ever seen visual poetry quite like it before. Nothing's as adorable as pandas eating pies... oh god oh god my brain is exploding with cute.

Ahem. Yes, but, might you want to change 'awake' to 'wake'? It would even out the flow of the poem in the second ring.

I like this a lot. :) The words are wonderful, but I especially like the pose and expression on the panda, it fits well. The piece looks almost like it was drawn with a fine pen on some old paper, which gives it a sweet, traditional look. nice work. :)

I've been seeing this piece all over the site for the past couple months, and I can't believe I'm just commenting now X) Lovely work! I love the texture you used! Reminds me of dirty silk or parchment

I love the texture, it looks traditional yet gorgeous.
The soft brown colors looks expecially nice

Great use of texture, and a great abstract concept that works beautifully. The old-ish feel looks great and the circles of letters focus the viewers eye. Great :D

oh wow, i really love this!!! I really like the oldish feeling, and the way the paper looks, really does look like the panda is in a dream. I think the words are really interesting too, and adds a nice feeling of mystery to the piece~ ahhh, and the random (forgive me if 'm wrong...) lightbulbs are really cool too XD
ahh~ this picture is so much fun to look at!! <3

Aaah, this is so not my style, nya, but - I'll try, nya~ xD;

I love the piece, though, nya~ Even though it takes such completely random elements, nya, the pattern just looks nice, nya, especially in soft borders that gently guide and hold the eye, and contrast with the asymmetrical focal point in the center, nya~ >w<
And... yeah~ Honestly, I don't really have any critique to give, nya, maybe if I knew anything about this sort of subject... but, well, oh well, nya~ xD I like it a lot, nya~ Just nice to look at, nya~ x3
