Best Friends Forever by JackDuarte might be treading ground that has been covered by many other artists, but he expresses it with such charm and skill here that the concept almost feels fresh again. The swooping, variable thickness of the lines does a good job of conveying the roundness of both objects. Identical facial expressions make the two characters seem even more similar. And while many artists emphasize the sharpness of the spikes on the cactus, this artist zigs from that by keeping the pricks dull and rounded at the ends. This choice means that the one sharp edge- the sound effect line for the Bff- makes the text read both as the saying B.F.F. and the sound of a slow air leak having popped. Really clever thinking there, creating an image that can read as wholesome cuteness or dark comedy depending on the viewer’s perception.
