I actually did two pieces of giftart for Cattycricket's birthday in 2010. This is the second one. Like the first, I included a little story to go with it.
In a Place He Shouldn’t
While Sputnick enjoys being with his family back home, he often can’t help but feel overprotected, his family, servants and guards often constantly minding over him.
That’s no fun for an adventurous boy like him! So he puts on his nifty Commoner clothes (so nobody can recognise him) and sneaks outside to weird, and often dangerous places. Just what every adventurous boy needs!
Here, Sputnick’s stripped down to his shorts for a swim in a lake. Oh, sure, he’s got a big pool back home at the Palace, but does that pool have massive, man-eating leeches that you can joyfully outswim? I think not!
