Still rolling with my New Year's Resolutions, I managed up re-work my Patreon! I've streamlined the number of tiers. Now we have sketch requests, commission discounts, and an exclusive character poll for a Patreon-only drawing every month! I'll be active with first look WIPs, sketches, videos, Q&A, and other surprises. If you enjoy my art, please help support my mission to keep it accessible for everyone.


Also, as I mentioned in my last journal entry, a children's book I've illustrated recently hit the market. It's available on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I hope you'll have a look! It was an absolute joy to create.

Today is a special day worthy of celebration--because you are a special person worthy of celebration, and it is your birthday.  You in all the universe are a unique product of unique experience that have shaped a unique and compelling perspective. You merit interest and attention; you merit praise.  Your presence in this shared reality makes that reality a better place.  For that, and your brave and generous sharing of the products of your experiences and creativity, I pause to note that I rejoice in you, and wish you a truly HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Correct me if I'm wrong. Based on your nockerbrat email, I'm fairly certain my wife and I owe you (1) a filled out copyright form, (2) the current price of filing that form with the U.S. government, and possibly the return of your original of "Skye Hunter" (blond, 14-year-old male).

However, I'm hoping you sent us a copy--not the original. Either way, we have it in a heated storage space.

If none of that sounds familiar, search the retrieval system in your brain somewhere around 1986. To date, we've only purchased a license to show a copy of "Skye Hunter" to literary agents and/or publishers.

It's a very long story, and I'm sorry that I don't have time to explain right now. Nevertheless, allow me this: we're attempting to retell all of world history in an epic, light fantasy genre. (We've written hundreds of thousands of words, and we're very serious about all this.)

Certainly not 1986 XD I think I know the image you're describing. Do you have the image on hand? You can PM me.
LaurieGrant Featured By Owner May 14, 2018  Professional Writer
I'm so sorry. You're right; after thinking about it for a couple of days, I realized it had to be more like 2005 or 2006.

I sent you a private message on deviantART. I wanted to proofread it, but I can't figure out how to get it back to look at it.
