And the finals:
Emile, our main character is blind and a headmaster at a school for blind children.
He meets Edward Whymper, the first man to summit the Matterhorn. Whymper inspires him to climb his own mountain, and learn to read despite his disability. The characters in this image were inspired by my brother Doug and I as kids.
After describing mountains to him, his brother gives him a stone as a reminder.
