A quick look around the garden...

Hedgehogs coming

The sketches for my next book project are progressing... Today I'd like to share a detail from the battle between the hedgehogs and the terrible concrete-giants, in pure black and white lines. Will the Giants be able to destroy the Garden and fill it with concrete built houses and skyscrapers? The hedgehogs are doing all they can to prevent this tragedy! Stay tuned for more teasers...

Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird - The Secret Life of Plants
