A special dedication to the story and author inspiring my love for bringing nature, animals, and characters together. Here’s my sketch accompanied by an excerpt out of one of the greatest books ever written.
“‘I beg your pardon,’ said the Mole, pulling himself together with an effort. ‘You must think me very rude; but all this is so new to me. So—this—is—a—River!’
‘The River,’ corrected the Rat.
‘And you really live by the river? What a jolly life!’
‘By it and with it and on it and in it,’ said the Rat. ‘It’s brother and sister to me, and aunts, and company, and food and drink, and (naturally) washing. It’s my world, and I don’t want any other. What it hasn’t got is not worth having, and what it doesn’t know is not worth knowing.”
-The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame-
