Winnie the Pooh and Piglet

This is Winnie the Pooh and Piglet by Ernest H. Shepard done circa 1960-70 and the median is Ink on Paper.  I like this image because Shepard himself is the original artist of Winnie the Pooh so this is an original drawing of him.  I like the simplistic look of this drawing it is very open and allows the viewer to fill in the blanks.  The works that Shepard has done are ones that end up in the Winnie the Pooh story books, upon seeing this image I instantly recognized it.  This truly is an iconic piece, even without much detail and no color most can see exactly what this image is.  This particular image shows Winnie the Pooh and Piglet walking through the forest most likely in conversation, ultimately this piece brings with it childhood memories, it is amazing how artworks can have that kind of effect.
