Tinkerton and Crossword

My neighbor Reina Mia Brill makes these very distinctive creatures out of wood, pottery and knitted wire. I acquired this little fellow who she calls a Tinkerton. Why is he on top of a crossword puzzle? Because he looks like a very erudite fellow to me. I also like the complex shadow he throws on the b/w graphic of the puzzle. 

In hindsight now, I'm thinking he looks a bit stunned. Maybe this piece should be called "Crosswords Were the Death of Him". What do you think?
