I've had this stuck in my head for a long while since I went rummaging throughout my old books, I'm glad I could get it out before I forgot.

Gorgeous interpretation of a classic book... with the most fitting of characters to boot.

I know you gave permission to use your art in another setting, but I'd like to use this for a D&D-style cover for an upcoming piece of fiction on FimFic. Would you object to me using this?

The way you have the hills curl at the end is pure Seuss. I'm sure he would have loved this.

woah. just woah. it kinda reminds me of an old book i read when i was a filly as a bedtime story, but i don't remember the title. the title of your art sounds vaguely framiliar, though.

It might possibly be "Oh, the Places You Will Go" by Dr. Seuss. I got the idea for this painting when I was rummaging through my old belongings and found that book among them.

I didn't want it to copy the quote exactly as it was... I'm not sure why, it just felt right.

This is cool I like it a lot. Weird curly hills are weird. Also the twisty clouds in the sky are a nice touch to go with the weird curly hills.
