Oowa and his cousin Kaitolé spent most of their time together. They grew up together and were best friends. Most of their time they spent talking about the future: Oowa talking about his dreams to go out into the world to explore, while Kaitolé told of his aspirations to become the chief of the tribe and the best warrior.
I chose pen and ink for this illustration, because their friendship is simple, just like pen an ink, but it’s permanent. Pen and ink also focuses on the subject; color, shading, and contrast don’t interfere with the subject matter. In this case the friendship is very important to both Oowa and Kaitolé: it’s simple and clear, because I want the viewer to focus on their friendship and Oowa’s dreams.
