Andrew, I'm right here in the same area as you.
I have something to say. After letting ~Cailiosa
know about that fact, I believe she's looking to come up this way in June. It seems you both like each other's art, from what I've seen in her favorites in the past couple of years.
Hopefully you can get back to me soon, and I can let her know if things will be alright for the visit to take place. For what it's worth, I'm about to graduate soon, so my free time will FINALLY return. And I may not be that much artistically-touched for illustration, but I can sure write damn well, and fantasy and such runs about in my mind. It comes out in an online RP that's been going on for about 4 or 5 years now with what few friends I have.
Here's hoping that perhaps you and I can touch base one of these days.
