Test piece for Brigitte

A little while ago I was asked to produce a test illustration for German women's magazine 'Brigitte'. The brief was to illustrate a well known phrase or saying about love, in this case 'We depend on our partner as a child on it's parents'. I had a couple of attempts at the image - the first idea was to draw a penguin couple because I thought it was a nice story of dependency - the male looking after the egg while the female looks for food, plus the egg is suggestive of the child which will then become dependent on it's parents. The second (more immediate and preferred idea) was of a bicycle made for two!
