Third Place: @kells_quirks with 6189 votes!

My thoughts on this piece: Great advice from a cactus and beautifully illustrated too! Love the thoughtfulness of this artwork and also appreciate how the artist maintains a bright composure with cartoony illustrations and also switches up the lettering styles. A nice optimistic piece of art that makes you read it a second time and ponder over the words.
