Nice little story about being yourself and finding your place. The simple drawings and minimal coloring work really well.
Eh. It was okay. I can't decide exactly who the desired audience is. Because it doesn't seem like it would appeal to anyone. The two stars are really only because I liked the style of the little drawings and appreciated what he was going for. Although I don't know if he achieved that.
One of my all-time favs! A simple yet profound little gem that has been a huge influence on my illustration and storytelling.
