There's something very personal about books, so to have inanimate objects reading specific titles seemed like a pretty amusing idea worth exploring.

The original drawings are all sold. I put them in my shop last week, spread the word to my shop newsletter subscribers, and they were all gone in less than a day. I had quite a few requests to make them available as prints, so here's the whole series.

Oh, and I've also been asked to make custom ones - specific objects reading specific books. I don't normally do personal commissions, but I'm open to doing something like this, especially if I can get it set up in my shop so all you have to do is fill out a form. Let me know in the comments if you're interested, and I'll post an update if I get this set up.
