Do you remember the picture we drew as kids? With our families, a house in the background and the sun in the corner? This portrait reminds me of those drawings and memories, back to the base of basics. And I love the "kiddish" feel of it, it takes me back to a somehow simpler way thinking and creating a composition. But I kept it in the true form of the creatures with features project. And I added some splashy autumn (water-)colours that, I think, give the illustration a warm, cosy feel.
