Hedgehog Love


He wanted to tell her in so many ways that he loved her, but he was short and fat and prickly and he didn't know how she would respond.

The most simple things are the better ones, this new paper cut is "formidable" ! Bravo et à bientot, Cindy

Cindy said...

stephanie, thanks! I made it on a plane ride to Dallas the other day. I think I do some of my best things when I'm forced to do nothing on a plane.

Hi love this one. I am totally transfixed by the art of papercutting (though I don't do anything like it at this time) and the humor of your art is great. I'm home with cold and this one made me laugh so hard, I blew stuff out of my nose (a bit yucky I know, but didn't know how else to thank you for the chuckle).

Cindy said...

LynAnne, I'm glad I could make you feel better in your time of sickness!

I saw the tag "hedgehog" in your sidebar and it brought me here. I love hedgehogs! Your papercut reminds me of the Grimm tale called Hans My Hedgehog -- have you heard of it? Where the hedgehog gets the girl?

Jim Henson's Storyteller version won an Emmy (though they mashed it up with that Baba Yaga fairly tale about the iron shoes and made it much sweeter and less violently Freudian :)

Hi, I just found your papercuts and I love them. I'm representing a (very small)non-profit organization called Indie Bands With A Mission (http://www.flickr.com/photos/indiebandswithamission/ and www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=108947695188&ref=ts) and we were wondering if we could use our papercuts created with your free templates to transfer onto a tshirt and sell (with credit to you, of course)? Or, if you'd prefer us not to do that, would you mind if we used your templates to create papercuts (like this hedgehog) to transfer onto tshirts that will not be sold or used commercially? Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Kathy,

Yes! Go ahead and use it. Please say who created it somewhere. My only request is that you send me one. I'm a Large Baby Doll Tee.

Thanks!

Cindy

Kathy said...

Thanks! We are actually in the middle of a move right now (from east coast to west!) and have run out of transfer paper, so it may take a while...and may not end up happening until next year (we work very slowly...)We will definitely make sure to tell you once they are made though!

I feel like I should make this for my boyfriend. I won't because it would be offensive BUT it made me laugh. Such a cute sentiment.

Hi Cindy,

I love your site. This artwork is perfect for a YW lesson that I am giving, it relates to a story that I wanted to share with them that can be found at: http://www.everydaymormonwriter.com/soapbox/
I hope you don't mind if I use the illustration with a quote that I'm printing off for the girls, I will give you credit.
