The Optimist by The-Longfall-of-1979 The Optimist by The-Longfall-of-1979
"Because, Amy, I am and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes and dreamer of improbable dreams. The wheels are in motion. Done." -- Doctor Who, 'The Almost People'

--

this one was third place in my Doctor Who quote poll (With 'life is a pile of good things and bad things' as second)
and I just wanted to tackle it and see what came out of it. Its more artistic and abstract then perhaps the previous ones are, (Note: I absolutely adore manta rays) and I'd like your opinion on how it looks out there. :) If the current prints released do well-- I'll release this one for printing as well so you can take it home with you.

Do enjoy! (I'd like some feedback on this one.)

Frankly, I'm not too fond of Dr. Who, but your work is breath-taking! This piece is my favorite so far.

That's probably one of many reasons I love the 11th Doctor, unwavering optimism.

This looks wonderful. The manta rays add to the dreamer effect as does the placement of the words. And I adore the star on that balloon. Optimism indeed.

I love it!!! The overall design and colours are brilliant!
but because the words overlap, makes it a bit hard to read, or where to begin to read :P
