Regular visitors to mikaspace may recognize Lorelei the bespectacled bibliophile hedgehog.

A very belated but very warm welcome from Bubbles and I over at :iconanimal-illustration:
Good to have you on board! Take a look over the rules box/recent journals and make yourself at home :)
Keep up the good work!
Oops, I meant that I don't like my opinion so easily swayed.

As Dee might say, "I bow in recognition of your exemplary skill."
Also, imagine me bowing.
I'm of two minds about your art. I'm maybe half-way through a binge-fest of ToMU, and just found your drawings. I find it disturbing that before I saw your pictures, I had Two firmly placed as one of, if not my definitely least-favorite characters of the story. But...you've drawn her so sweetly that I find myself softening in my opinion towards her. Which is not in and of itself bad, and certainly speaks well of your talent; I just like having my opinion changed by a simple "..but she's so Cute!"-play.

Amazing drawings. If you can find someone to make a Mack plushie, let me know, because I'll buy one to keep safe, and one to hug, she's just that cute. Nicely done.
Thanks for taking the time to comment! I've always been very fond of Two, because she's easy to relate to for an aspie like myself, so I'm glad if my work has made you more favourably inclined toward her :) If you're one of those who blames Two for being inflexible, please try to remember that this isn't something she can just choose to turn off when it becomes inconvenient. Cognitive flexibility can be developed to *some* extent, but, like physical flexibility, it takes a lot of hard, and often painful work. You can't expect it happen instantly, any more than you can expect a first time yogi to put his feet on top of his head after decades of a sedentary lifestyle.

As for the plushie, I don't know if she reads MU, but allykat on LiveJournal *just* posted that she's thinking of making felted dolls as a form of fan art, so you could try asking her if she'd be interested.
Hi hi Meekie ^^
