It's a neat piece. He also did a Southern Hemisphere Winter variation as well in the same arrangement.

I don't remember seeing the winter one but the instant I saw this, I thought to myself and said "A japanese person must've drawn that...it's looks too good"

The Winter one is for the Southern Hemisphere where they're celebrating the first day of winter today.

The fact that it's done by someone Japanese is obvious, given that the two characters' names are written on their ears in Japanese. (Kaikai and Kiki)

Edit: It actually looks like Kaikai Kiki is Takashi Murakami's art company...

I remember seeing this on Google and thinking "What? Summer only just now officially started?" Didn't realize the solstice was in mid-June. Razz
