Such a simple yet powerful gesture portrayed in your illo. I love the natural color scheme as well! The quote accompanying your illo adds to its inspirational value.

Belated thanks for the comment on mine :)

I like the text version with the green background. In my humble opinion, it adds to the overall illo and makes it more engaging. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
