Oh my god!!! I'm so impressed.
Could I use this pic for my blog? It's a French blog. I'd like to use it for one of my article.

regards
Emilie

This is absolutely fantastic...it must have taken so much time to do but it's so, so worth it. One of the great examples of how literature can positively influence artwork :D Beautiful job! :love:

She said basically that your pictures are very beautiful and thank you for them.
It is a rough translation.

hey nice work! And congrats on the dd.
Might be old news but Mr Gaiman has written about this work directly. Said it is a favorite of his.

I made it into the short list for September so that itself is fine with me!

Anyway nice work sir!

Great job! I really loce the igloo of books and the warm lighting. Wish I could see less outside light so the warm light inside glows from within. The tree keeps drawing me in. It's so well made and I'm drawn more to the open books than the closed. This is very nice. I wish I could see more detail. Sorry for the long reply.

really sculpture, I like things I can actually touch, get my hands dirty and make things. I don't get that from my computer work.
