I've always loved pandas, both giant and Lesser/Red pandas. Maybe because of their gentle nature, "rogue-like" adorable appearance and modest way of living. It would surely be wonderful to just eat your favourite food all day long and sleep most of the time, right?
But the fact is that among so many animals pandas are in danger of becoming just a cute memory of a wild animal and symbol of WWF, if things don't change soon. We're all family in this small planet after all, and this thought made me want to paint a picture of one innocent life among us.
