  7. Very true!
    I love when the conceptual sheds stiffness.
    of the "intellectual" seriousness.
    (sorry if I did not express what I mean)

  9. Oh my. It is a mystery if the stacked books have been read yet or not. Maybe you should add an extra high coffee table for a good cup of joe to keep him alert!

  17. Another great image!! Love the double meaning of the word "heights" here! As an avid reader who ALWAYS has a book on hand, this one really resonates with me!

  18. Haha I love your interpretation of "heights" - combines two things I love, illustrations and books! And you made the lil hedgehog look totally engrossed in his book!

  19. Hedgehogs and books...two of my favorite things! Is this a design for a bookmark? It'd make a perfect one!

  23. Shirley, catching up with the blog posts I missed and this little hedgehog is not only adorable, but brilliant! Where would we be without books, eh, friend? My sister called me last night and said she was thinking of getting the Kindle E-reader. I'm still undecided whether it's a good idea. After all, how can you replace holding a book between your hands and touching and smelling the pages? :)
