Space is one of the topics I find very inspiring to illustrate. Here is my vision of solar system. All proportions are very approximate! :-)

Except in New Mexico, where the House of Representatives passed a resolution to keep it a planet, -- Pluto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And in my heart, Pluto will always be a planet.

Fantastic wallpaper, by the way! Fabulous job, as usual, Vlad.

Some group of astronomers don't get to tell me what the words I use mean. Pluto is a planet in my books. I'd even like to add a few of the other newly-discovered, Pluto-sized bodies in the outer solar system to the family, like Eris and Quaoar.

Never go to Pluto. It's a Mickey Mouse planet.

Why is the issue of Pluto even a problem to people? Why does anyone want to keep it close to their hearts? Because it's cute? Because it's different?

The fact of the matter is, it does not follow logically the way that we view the planets of the solar system. It's not a gas giant, nor is it even related to the inner planets. It's more related to bodies inside the Oort Cloud and the Keiper Belt, and if we had to include those also, there'd possibly be thousands and thousands of planets. It's still a planet, it's simply a 'dwarf-planet'. If you want to include it as a planet, no real scientist is going to annoy you about it, it's simply nomenclature.
