Lovely illustration! I like the scene and all the details, plus the expression of relief the character and the illustration as a whole gives off! The only things I'd point out are here feet, which are kinda blocky, and the cat's face, which seems somewhat real, and not as soft in style as the rest of the pic, but really, I'm saying that just to point out things that could improve, as they don't hurt the illustration at all.
Wrong, cuz the spring solstice and the winter solstice happen the same day as predicted by mayan calendar, anyway 12 21 12 is the date when they ran out of rock to keep engraving their calendar . Anyway winter solstice was yesterday and many people gathered to celebrate it the same as in past years...srry for my english
