This is excellent Susan. I love the calligraphy floor. It reminds me of The Beatles.

Lovely illustration, very resonant for me right now with 2 colourful small boys being slowly moulded into maybe grey ones that will sit at a desk nicely and learn in the approved manner.
Mustn't forget they need their telescopes too.

This drawing could be about my grandson, an Asperger's kid who sees beyond the world of his peers, often at the most inappropriate times. This is beautiful. Thank you for posting it.

It appears I've been missing out on some great illustrations. I love this one as well.

I claim the one in red.
