The Garden is my most time-consuming piece so far, but also my most joyful creation yet. I drew it as a birthday present for my mother, and it took me 85 hours to complete. The first 10 hours was hard work, with lots of doubt and resketching and planning and replanning... There is so much white paper in the beginning, so many choices and what ifs. But then, things take shape and start growing by themselves, and the following 75 hours were just pure fun and bliss and carefree experimentation. And then, after 85 hours of deep diving, The Garden was done. Some parts of it were exactly as I planned, others completely different. Like life. Congrats, mum.
