Hey Juju, I hate to ask this since I know you've probably got lots of commision work to do and all, but could I request a small little motivational Cloud doodle? I've been having a really terrible time with everything from work to life in general, and looking at your different motivational arts in such a "comforting to look at" style has helped me get through some pretty rough days.
