    Something is going on here … some silent tension. Great drawing ( and I like the monty-pythony perspective of the roof!)

    Love it. Really moody with some excellent Gorey influence perhaps? Ah, and I just saw the racoon, cat, and snake hiding in the grass. Lovely creatures of the night…nice.

    Wow! What a really cool observatory. Spectacular assortment of patterns. I agree it looks a bit scary, maybe because it’s so dark outside and the nocturnal creatures are out.

      Thanks Kate, I really like your bold colour in your bee illustrations – I keep thinking about adding colour but really enjoy working with black ink!
