I love to see words and phrases in a different light, it could be anything really, that suddenly turns to pictures in my head, often with a different meaning.
For fun, I translated a few words and sayings directly from Norwegian to English using the Norwegian name or saying but with English words. I have drawn a few pictures during winter and decided to share them every Wednesday until I have shown them all. So, get ready to meet some strange creatures and a bit of wonder from my side – why and how did it get its name. Sometimes it explains itself, but other times…
Let me introduce you to Norwegian in English with an animal – the spikepig (drawn below).
…and if you wonder what kind of animal a spikepig really is, it`s a hedgehog.
