Something I plan to keep doing, and something I hope will inspire and create a sense of wonder in both young and old. Hopefully a better photo will come soon, the red eyes are an important feature! Stay tuned.
Thank you to Neil Gaiman for inspiring me with your own imagination, I hope it is to your liking!
