This is phenomenal!! I loved it the minute I saw it. I too had a globe almost identical to this one as a child; I literally haven't thought of it in...20 years perhaps?
What a lovely portrait to cherish as the years go by. You managed to capture that elusive essence of childhood in a single glance. This strikes such deep memories in me that I can't tell you how incredible this is.
Well done. Congrats on a very well-earned DD!!!
that is just cool
