The fable of the moon and the giraffe:

Does anyone wonder why the moon has a crescent form?
The giraffe can't sleep because the moonlight keeps her awake!
Every month, she starts eating the moon.
She can't make short work of it, otherwise she might choke...
So, she nibbles pieces, drinking from the clouds sometimes.
After 14 days, the sky is entirely black.
So, the giraffe takes a nap.

Does anyone know why the moon comes back?
Neither the giraffe nor I know why

FRENCH VERSION

La fable de la girafe

Personne ne s’est demandé pourquoi la lune avait la forme d'un croissant ?

En fait, une girafe, gênée par la lumière de la lune, ne pouvait pas dormir.

Et chaque mois, la même histoire, la girafe recommençait à manger la lune,

Mais elle ne pouvait pas en faire une une seule bouchée et risquer de s’étouffer...

Alors, elle grignotait des petits morceaux, en buvant quelques nuages au passage,

Après 14 nuits de ce dur labeur, le ciel était totalement noir.

Alors, la girafe pouvait dormir, enfin.


Personne ne saurait pourquoi la lune revient plus tard ?

Ni la girafe ni moi pouvons le dire…

La fable de la girafe by *AquaSixio is a clever fable explaining the phases of the moon. Be sure to read the artist's comments for the whole story. ( Suggested by poliwag30 and Featured by frail )

Et bah, moi qui ne connaissait pas la fable, je me suis laissé emporter! Pas uniquement par la fable mais par votre dessin aussi !
C'est juste magnifique ^v^ !
Je trouve les couleurs tout simplement apaisantes, ça nous plonge dans un univers un peu enfantin et moi j'adore !
Beau, voir même, excellent travail ^v^ !

Hi, just wanted to let you know this shop is selling your design; I assume without permission, as I know that several of their other items are also stolen designs.

I love Etsy, it's a great place to sell handmade items. I have my own shop there too, www.etsy.com/shop/MirielDesign
But it sucks when people steal, it's terrible. I've reported it to Etsy as well.
Most of Etsy sellers are honest people, though :)

Thank you.
I absolutely love your work, you have been an inspiration to me for years. I tried digital painting for a bit, but it didn't really work out for me.
I recognized your Giraffe right away when I saw it :)
