Great! Love the mystery here. It also made me think of a philosophical thought experiment I teach my students;

Maybe it really did-- did he ever open it & find out?
Intriguing take! Makes me think of Shrodinger's Cat...

I like this a lot! Very mysterious...a pretend proposal? or a pretend secret critter in there?

Nice job!

Great texture in the background using type. Good work.

Good idea! Knowing how it's difficult to draw a hand your attempt is a success. I like the way you mix clean sketching and "scratchy" background, it really makes the subject popping out!

Hello!
I like very much the contrast between figure and background, the result is very good.
The hand is very well drawn (I hate to drawn hands, It´s very difficult to me!)

I'm glad you didn't do a little blue box. All the ladies would have been swooning. Great idea!
