A blind boy in raingear walking with the aid of a white cane.

This image had originally called for the boy to have a guide dog, because a kid and a dog are inherently cute together. But when looking for reference images of kids with guide dogs, I learned that blind kids don’t actually get guide dogs. You generally have to be 18 for a guide animal. I relayed this to the client and they changed the specs. So, I guess I sort of took away this boy’s dog and gave him a cane instead. If it helps, later in this batch there will be a man with a guide dog instead. Not as cute, but more accurate.
