It is my most detailed work ever with a lot of time spent in getting proper text shadow for maximum legibility.

And finally it is among the very few artwork that looks better in print than on screen (usually it is the other way round).

I certainly don’t like it. Thankfully, sometime later my mother explains to me why I need that milk if I wa…
