I wanted to create something in which every element didn't belong with the others - the heavy shading in the dog, the paper-like cutout white birds, the colours of the outside world and the muted colours of the girl and her books. It appears incomplete but when I went further with it, I realised that the less colours and shadings I added, the more finished it actually felt. I'm happy with it, although if I was to draw this again, I would be more careful with the dog. I would have made him flatter instead of so dense. I might return to this or draw another one.

I drew inspiration from 'The Night Train' by RYE-BREAD on deviantart ( a beautiful and charming piece of work) but attempted a different sense of whimsy.

Great picture. Surreal. I like faded old dusty colours. Makes it more alive yet distant.

Wow, such an awesome piece of art. I get the feeling that this could be some futuristic, alternate-universe drawing of Dorthy and Toto, but that could just be me.

Dear god, it's beautiful.

Great work, the colors on the girl are great, and it just has me lost in wonder. Fantastic work.
