This is Ed, a character in the Gigi books.
So how did Ed make way from idea to paper or from the abstract to something concrete?
I delight in thinking that he was written in a similar way that a word for a poem is written, where unique combinations of marks can express anything. Where each line tells a story and a mark misplaced could mean the difference between a look of attention or fear, apathy or concern.
Each line is a question that always asks the same thing. Does this line make the real thing come true? Will this line take things to the beginning –in the end?
