Growing Up by Nollaig Growing Up by Nollaig
Based off the last scene in Winnie The Pooh's Most Grand Adventure. The moment when Christopher, reflecting on his first day of school, and away from his toys, wonders if Pooh Bear will always be there for him.

I was tempted to put in a second panel where an older Christopher Robin is sitting there by himself, having outgrown Pooh, but I thought that might be pushing it a bit haha. I may do it eventually.

Can I also just point out how much nicer my background and colours are than the original film? Go look at the original film. It has these big brown/purple cloud things and no shadows or highlights. Mine's all colourdyful.

The real-life Christopher Robin was badly teased at boarding school and began to hate the books and blame his father for writing about him (a little bit of exploitation, never-the-less).

Yep, I've read CR's biographies, I know all about him and his detachment from his father's work.

Most emotional part of Winnie the Pooh that it makes you question why growing up should be so important if it all comes down to something like this.

I think the secret is nobody really wants to grow up, we just don't get a choice in the matter.
