I guess I'll upload some fresh art here. I'm rarely on DA, but I figure I should at least update it every so often. You can follow me more up to date on my site www.brian-shearer.com

Happy birthday.
What a wonderful thing it is to pause, today, and think of you.  That is a very good thing about your birthday, when at least some of your fellow passengers on Planet Earth can pause, smile, and thank you for making your time among us a good thing.  That is so for you have employed yourself in fashioning works of noteworthy creativity, that have drawn informed notice and substantiated respect for the pains you took to produce them; for your praiseworthy courage in sharing them with us at the risk of cruel or thoughtless criticism.  Today, may you notice only praise and respect in celebrating your existence.  I, also, celebrate that and sincerely and earnestly wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Happy Early Birthday, Brian Shearer.
Sincerely one of your hopefully entirely too many fans;
Adalack.

Soon, it's going to be yet another regular day. Birds will sing...cats will meow...dogs will bark...geese will honk and steal peoples stuff.  

A typical, simple, regular day.

However, there is a small, tiny, exception.  The exception is for you, for that is the time when lightning was thrown from above by Zeus to herald your appearance.  Cast in the molten fires of Mount Olympus, and granted with a great creative power, you have been released upon the world to conquer it in whatever manner you see fit!  For it has been foretold by those who can see the future that you are great and true, and that it is your time to shout your joy to the heavens, and revel in the knowledge that on that day, it is written for you to have a Happy Birthday, with many more to come to increase your power and complete your creative conquest!

Also there's hand made cake and ice cream from down the street.  Those folks make some mighty fine cake indeed. Yum! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
