From the depth of the ocean
To the limitless sky
Open a book, open your mind
This world is boundless
So let your imagination fly


Happy almost Thanksgiving, everyone!

I grew up in a small apartment in China and was raised by my grandparents. When I'm not studying or doing homework, I would go into the office/storage room where all the books are kept and flip through all the books about animals. The photos and illustrations of all the different species always fascinated me and inspired me to learn, understand, and draw the world around me. It gave me a glimpse beyond the rundown apartments and the grey skies of China that I grew up in. Even though the storage room was no bigger than a bathroom, with those books, the walls opened up and the world became boundless.

I'd sacrifice my arms and legs to be able to attain reality-warping powers, just to make a room like this.

I would have given anything to have a room like that in my house. Man, those were the days, where I could pick up my Lord of the Rings books, and there I was, standing on the walls of Minas Tirith as I watched Rohan horsemen charge the Orc army below on the Pelennor Fields. 

Ah~. The places books can take you! An excellent piece, from the waves of the ocean to the stars in the sky, and the girl's expression of wonder all combine to create a beautiful tapestry honoring the spirit of human imagination and the magic of words.
