How do you submit stuff like that to Valve?
I would really like to show my art to them

Knowing that you were a brilliant artist even before you joined Valve (HP illustrated & whatnot)... it still breaks my brain that you actually joined Valve! You're amazing!

Is it implied that the triplets are really hales sons and not manns? Barmabas is devastated at Manns wife's death, and Mann is just, meh. So they technically own Mann. Co and Grey is attempting to steal it from Saxon

I saw these a few days back and thought, "This art sure looks a lot like Makani's Someone is ripping their style".

I read Blood Brothers two days back; now I'm downloading TF2 after a year of dithering on my part. Connection? Yes. Causation? HELL YES.

(It's taken about 2 days so far, including last night- when my parents switched off our router- and it's at 55%. Help? Medic? Need and internet dispenser here? Also gotta find my mouse after... two months of it being missing. Piss.)

You must have a good laugh when you get the script and realize you have to draw things like the Alamo on top of a butte rock, or Saxton Hale giving a conference while fighting a yeti! xD
