That makes a lot of difference. Ryan says: didn’t see that, does really change the feel of the thing, got some respect for flower head guy now John says: Is that the same guy that did the children’s book about the Giving Tree? Looks like the same drawing style. Beautiful. Gabrielle says: Yep, same guy.
