Kidnap me Mr. Erizo



Some weeks ago a Hedgehog started crossing the road just in front of my car, I could slow down just in time, Mr. Erizo (hedgehog in spanish) stopped walking, looked to me and moved his little nose, rather smelling than watching I guess, and moved on. That imaged touched me so that I had to draw him...
Last week I found a little hedgehog in my garden, still a young boy and I hope to see him then and now back to have a chat ;) These animals are magic!
Here also a picture of Hans, my garden-hedgehog named to the one of the Jim Henson story.

Hola Kathy, tu ilustración es muy muy muy buena, me gusta mucho.
Te cuento algo. este año viajamos a Nueva Zelanda para el casamiento de mi hija más grande, un noche, mientras dormíamos, el perro ladraba y ladraba, entonces me levanté y salí, en cuanto puse un pié fuera de la casa (descalzo) sentí que pisé algo "pinchudo" y lo aparté con el pié, era una pelotita pero en la oscuridad yo no pude ver bien. y al día siguiente, mi hija me dice, "papá, era un erizo, siempre vienen". ah, pobrecito pensé yo, lo que menos imaginé era que me encontraría con un erizo, ja ja. jamás había visto uno. Bien, tampoco lo ví, estaba muy oscuro!!
Buen fin de semana!!!
Bellísima ilustración!

Dear Kathy, this dreamy drawing is one of my favourites! It's hiding a secret, that may lead us to the fairytale, where the girl and the hedgehog live...
Maybe it'll be interesting for you to know how it's called in Bulgarian? "Таралеж" - [tara'lezh], but it's more common as ['eshko-'beshko], espeially in children's literature...
Hans is so sweet!! My brother adores hedgehogs...
