Not new, but certainly one of my favorite depictions of the letter :G:

I knew your piece today would make me smile the instant it appeared on my screen...and I was right!! What a charming look in that sweet giraffe's eye...and the perfect amount of smile. Your illustrations of animals give them so much personality...very, very nicely done!
