"he had memories of trees that no one had ever seen before." i was recently thinking of that story about the buck that was really vain about his antlers which eventually got him into trouble. i was doing some doodles and this was one turned into my IF submission... i'm trying to blend the detailed lines with very graphic silhouettes with out seeming too disjointed...
