Earlier this year, the mother of my close friend passed away due to lung cancer. She was a big influence and motivation to him during his schooling at the Art Institute of Seattle. I made this illustration as a symbol of my friend's dedication and determination to someday be an animator for Disney/Pixar. The Unicorns in the sky are symbolic of his mom's favorite creature and that she's now in a better place watching over her kids.
