Just Another Reminder

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 12, 2019, 3:30 PM

To the former friend who is stupid enough to assume that I would be stupid enough to speak to someone who threw me under the bus by throwing away our friendship in revenge for standing up to his manipulative bully of a spouse, then threw me under the bus again by denying we were ever friends in the first place in revenge for calling you out for being an awful friend and awful person, don't continue to insult me by continuing to be too stupid to understand what "I would rather die choking on a suppository and come back as a clam that lives for a thousand years than speak to you again."
I would think that what you've done to me already would at the very least entitle me to never speak or contact you again so long as I can draw breath.  Even if, by some miracle of God, you're sincere about reconciliation for whatever reason, I don't care what it is, even if I get murdered over it, I refuse to acknowledge whatever hypocritical missive you want me to see.
Considering as how you never let me explain my side of the story when you first threw away our friendship in the first place, you only serve to highlight your own shameless hypocrisy by pleading that I haven't heard your side of the story while continuing to be too stupid to understand I never want to speak to you again.

hello avancna, I've seen your work for a long time and it's amazing, you bring out extinct species that we'll never see in a documentary or movie, or at least not until someone presents them in a book, I'm writing and drawing a small book about animals extinct, it has several genera of dinosaurs, extinct mammals, plesiosaurs, pliosaurs, pterosaurs, burmese insects, basal synapsids, some sharks, rare invertebrates of the Paleozoic (especially the Cambrian) and much more. But there is something that is very much lacking, there is a great shortage of fish, there are only the best known (protosphyraena, leedsichthys, xiphactinus, pachyrhizodus, enchodus, carcharocles megalodon, hybodus, etc) and I would like to include some three or four of Each period, do you think you could recommend important and curious genres of each period according to your criteria? I would be happy if you gave me the PDF of each one so that I could make the illustrations without having to copy your work, I would be very grateful

I strongly recommend getting Fossil Fish Atlas by Karl A. Frickhinger as a starting point for your fishy endeavours.  That, and pick some taxa and I'll see if I have or can get those pdfs
