Altalamatox recently went through a rough procedure because of cancer and my jaw hit the floor when I heard the news. She is incredibly talented and her art blows me away every time, making me equal parts ashamed of my own art and inspired to try to get even close to her level. She has so many lovely characters it's impossible to choose a favorite.
I can't imagine what you're going through, Tox, but you've got a bunch of people here who support you and wish you all the best. You are an incredible person and such an inspiration, stay strong! I couldn't decide which of your characters to draw, so Horace turned the tables and decided it's his turn to give you a hug.

Oh goodness, you, thank you for your thoughts! And for ridiculously warm and fluffy Horace hugs! (I seriously need to arrange a meeting between Horace and Eric, I think there'd be a great deal of mutual poofy tail appreciation and possibly the implosion of the universe from fluffy monster man overload.) Damn, I love your design for Horace, the way you handle his two-toned hair is gorgeous.
And yoooou- *shakes you* - I feel like our conversations often run this way but I have to protest! You are insanely talented and I don't have half the life in my drawings that you do, I am enamored by your tireless action poses and colorful characters! You're always up to SO MUCH, I can't believe how many projects you handle at a time and keep something resembling sanity. All the more thanks for taking the time to send some wishes and art my way, you're the best! (And good luck with all the things, wow!)
And, Horace, love, thank you for the well-placed squeeze just perfectly around where I just had my neck cut open. You meant well. *pets*
Thanks again, you.
Oh damn!!! I hope she'll make it thru this. Cancer is nothing to laugh at and I know (Personal Losses)
I love the pic it dose show the true feeling you get sometimes when someone you know or love is going thru a hard time.
I wish her the best and will say a prayer for her. I do hope she'll be alright.
