This is the special art that Todd created for his trip to Portugal. It features some of Portugal's famous landmarks and their national symbol— the chicken.

"Portugal was amazing!" said Todd. "Everyone was so nice. I did several events for ToddWorld in Lisbon and Porto, appearing at several stores called Fnac. I also did a fun event at Cadin, a great place that helps children and their families from all over the world. We even raised some money for them :)

"Thanks to Elastic Rights and all the great people who made this trip successful."
