John and Maus . by megatruh John and Maus . by megatruh

commission for Ben Esser

~John was a boy who got bullied in school because he was physically small. And so he believed that if he buried his feet to the ground he would grow faster and tall as a tree. While performing his action in the garden near the sea, he met a smart talking mouse.~

This scene has two version, night and daylight version. I really like the idea of the piece(s), kind of remind me of myself as a kid :')

Thank you so much for commissioning me :blowkiss::tea:

I put some steps and brush setting on tumblr: [link]

Love, love, LOVE! While I have no children, I still collect children's books — the creativity, I've found, frequently far surpasses that found in adult literature. Children's stories often inspire me; they take place in worlds where truly, anything can happen. That unfettered freedom of imagination will always delight me.

If I found these illustrations in a children's book, I'd buy it in an instant.

By any chance, do you have a larger digital image of the first scene? I'd love it as a desktop. In fact, I'd love a bunch of your works as a screen saver slide-show... (any such thing available?)

Love the fireflies on the bottom half! They add so much flavor to the scene.
Your clouds are breath-taking and remind me of the vistas back home.

I'd love to see you tackle some dramatic angles with clouds above or below.

Keep up the great work.
