Frequently asked question #1: MalvaAlcea… is that your real name?

Frequently asked question #2: What's the name of your little characters?

Black ballpoint pen, that's all. No pencil, no gel

i'm just kidding. here's the thing:
my newest deviation ‘lies we have to tell’ got more than 600 favorites, that’s almost twice as many as my second most popular deviation got and it’s a lot more than my average drawings usually get :faint:
i got 1200 messages over night and like 60 new watchers and a few thousand pageviews and i’m totally blown away.
