Illustration Friday ~ Hierarchy


There are actually two spellings for this word. The word HIerarchy refers to angels or holy beings or a ranking of clergy. The word HEirarchy refers to all other leveled orders.
So I chose to illustrate something sort of halfway between each. Actually the hierarchy will contain the same definition as a 3rd or 4th meaning, so we are safe either way. I noticed different artists here have spelled it both ways.

I guess you learn something every day. I had no idea about the spelling relationship to angels. These are cute, fun and uplifting!

I really like the variety and yet unity at the same time. And thanks for the vocab. Love words and word origins.

You've done well to cover both spellings and meanings. Your illustration is so sweet.

Thanks for dropping into my blog, maybe if you plan to have a creative sabbatical next month we should do a studio swap! Your studio sounds divine, although I'm sure your answer will be a big NOooooow to my old claustrophobic laundry room studio ;)
