On GratitudeI got a really lovely comment the other day. I get a lot of really lovely comments (yes, you can go ahead and call this a humblebrag if you like), but this particular one really touched me. It came at just the right time - I've had a few tough, hard-working, disappointing and quietly emotionally taxing months, and at this particular moment I either needed some words of encouragement or a kilo of ice cream - and it was worded just right. And I kept coming back to it and it kept making me smile.On Gratitude by LouisaGallie
SeaPiper - "This is so beautiful its breathtaking. I cannot tell you just how much I love this - thank you so much for sharing this amazing picture "
That's it. Just some simple words, but I know that feeling of seeing something so beautiful it takes your breath away a little bit and right now it just blows me away that someone else could feel like that at something I've made. That they could like it so much they actually thank me for sharing it. That's kind of amazing.
Thank you SO much for the birthday wishes, everyone! I woke up to find all your kind and thoughtful messages in my inbox, and it was a lovely start to a wonderful day. One of my best birthdays ever! And lookit these lovely gifts sent to me by awesome people
Morgan, the new Fearless Leader of the Pikmin, finally bringing down his very confused rival, Faeren. I haven't stopped laughing in days! Concept inspired by --> THIS <-- statue of Morgan on my shelf (made by SBGothik), onto which my collection of tiny pikmin toys has migrated over the years. As you can see.

And a beautiful, epic ink portrait of Morgan! Seems he was my birthday character this year.
Thank you also to the following people for mentioning me in their DeviantArt Questionaires! I'm honored!

Geek update: Working on a few more Fifth Doctor sketches (to give to Peter Davison along with my "Just A Twinge of Cosmic Angst" watercolor) and painting up an Eighth Doctor/Charley lineart so I can ask India Fisher sign it for me at Gallifrey One next year! ^___^
I also GOT TO MEET ALEX KINGSTON at Emerald City Comic-con a few months back! I gave her all of my artwork with River Song to keep (amid my nervous shaking and babbling), and she got a massive kick out of "Next Stop: Everywhere"! She thought it was rather naughty. XD She also signed my "Time and Space" painting for me, and wrote "Hello Sueetie" on it (yep, she spells it like that)! She is just as amazing in person as you would expect, and HER HAIR! It's unstoppable. *_____*
