My two page spread for the Olio.
I like it :)

Had to start with "I've got something to show/tell you, something you need to know." and end with "And if you're angry about yesterday please forgive me"

For those who can't make it out, XY is showing a Spider in the third panel

Thanks to `cei- for the story idea.

Oh man thank you SO much for the DD. I wasn't expecting to come on to see so many wonderfull messages. :heart: Will try and reply to them all.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-01-31
It's neat to see a powerful story unfold in the simplest of ways; a touch, a look, in an emotion or the act of merely showing someone your heart. The story in Olio is told through =maxwell-heza's beautiful interpretations of human vulnerability. Wonderful pacing, expressions and character design leave one feeling warm and gooey... like after the perfect hug. Be sure to stop by and check out the rest of this deviant's gallery!

Can't believe I've only just come across this, lol.

Really awesome idea, and really well executed. Really proves the old saying "a picture says a thousand words".

So... I recently finished a piece and uploaded it, and today when nosing through my old favorites I re-came upon this piece of yours. I think in my new piece I might have been subconsciously influenced by your style, so I thought I'd drop you a note to say thanks for the inspiration. If you're interested, the piece is here.

Anyway, hope you're well.
