This makes me think of To Kill A Mockingbird. Probably because it's similar to the 50th anniversary edition's cover. Really cool though, really captures the beauty of childhood, if that makes sense..:p

This reminds me of the movie Grave of the Fireflies. You should totally watch it (Or if you already have, then nevermind :p )
Brilliant picture. :clap: The fireflies are so wonderful...

Thank you! I should write the description of the story. He's glowing because he started a bad habit of snaking on fireflies and couldn't quite. He began to glow because he ate so many over the summers.
