Free of care is a drawing I initially started for a friendly contest, whose theme was Fantasy Children. I did not manage to finish it in time unfortunately… But I have spent soooo much time on it that I had to post it here once finished. Et voilà! This is my depiction of how childhood should always be: an age of carefree cheerfulness. The world around is colourful and inviting and not synonymous with dangers at all as the loving parents are here to keep an eye open and to protect. Done in colour pencils.
