This is something I came up with while teaching at California State University Northridge in 2007. I drew it while class was in progress. More or less a doodle that just got carried away. I used it in conjunction with the Animation Day campaign I was on. For a few years I was into the idea of establishing a special day for artists in the animation biz and everywhere else for that matter. So I'd take time to create a composition that was different and that featured a smiley face sun. In this case it also featured a little boy contemplating that magical light that shines within us all.
