Doodle for Google: Why today’s drawing by Arantza Peña Popo is so special

Today’s Google Doodle might look to be like any other, showing a touching, sentimental image illustrating something about the day.

And it is. But it also much more: it is made by the winner of a Googlecompetition, who has shared the poignant story behind its creation.

Most of Google’s Doodles are made by Google itself, often with collaboration from experts. They tend to commemorate events in history, marking the anniversary of birthdays, deaths or major breakthroughs from across culture.
