  1. My dear Elephant, as you are an early riser, top of the Mon. morning to you! This pen and ink (is it?) sketch has so much depth. Love the darkness behind the trees + the flowers.

    1. Thank you – good day (now) to you too!

      This story is so sad – starving and then left by their parents in the forest to die! Can it get any grimmer (a pun)!

  2. This is a magnificently detailed piece of artwork, right down to the lettering which (A) perfect for the spread and (B) contains a cubbyhole for a wicked old lady to hide in.

    1. Again, I am happy so many people took the time to look at the details – there is a great deal in this one small work – it is the heading for the story.

      Thanks for the close look!
