An object lesson for Hedgy and me: No matter how many cereal box tops you send away, the toy that comes in the mail will not be as big or as exciting as advertised ;)
One night, Hedgy needed some serious cheering up! I listened to her problems and gave her a hug, not minding her hedgehog spines one bit. I'm always glad to help a friend in need =0)
Inspired by the movie "Wild Wild West", a suth'n belle by the name of Catra O'Hara had this to say: "Oh, Mr. Coaltender!! Won't you let little ol' me ride on your fahn train?"
One of the fine artists that I met at Anthrocon 2000 was Joe Rosales (of WILDLIFERS and ROMANICS fame). We spent a long time chatting, and he was kind enough to draw a picture of me on my con badge. Thanks again, Joe!
Cecil (introduced to me by Danruk) drew this picture for me as part of an art exchange at Anthrocon 2000. If you'd like to see what I drew for him in return, click HERE.
Kelly Siegfried (Mousie)
At Anthrocon 2000, I had the pleasure of having lunch with Kelly "Mousie" Siegfried. We rode over to a local sandwich shop in my Jeep. Thank You, Kelly, for a wonderful picture and an enjoyable lunch!
Lisa Cotton (HollyAnn)
After a brief chat on FurToonia, HollyAnn was kind enough to draw this picture for me. I like the toony expression on my face here =0) Thanks!
9/28/2003: Holly drew this picture on an oekaki site, in which artists use a web-based drawing too to create sketches and post them online. Great work, Holly! To see more oekaki, check out http://forrestdreams.xepher.net/oekaki/ .
Dutch (David Koppenhaver)
In this commissioned piece, I asked Dutch how Maggie Noirveaux would react to a toon skunk like me. Here is his answer ;)
After the above piece was done, I later asked what would happen if Maggie's friends, Jules and and Misty joined in. Here was his response.
Egad! I've been superpukeyqootified! Thanks, Ralph, for the cute (I mean "qoot") pic!
11/13/2003: Ralph drew this picture for me after I told him about my RL sweetheart, Artemis. This picture accurately describes the moment of our first kiss ;)
11/21/2003: Another funny, romantic moment. This was a piece I commissioned from Ralph some time ago. Tuck and Thelma, riding the love train, with li'l ol' me as the engineer ED=0)
For the holidays, I got this wonderful picture from a fellow IRCer named Rubbertex. Thanks, pal!
Yeek! Such are the dangers of filling up too fast at a water stop. I may have to roll down the tracks for the rest of the trip here ;)
This well-drawn picture showed up in my mailbox early one Friday morning before I even met the artist! Very nicely done, friend!
In return for a picture I drew for him, Wallaroo thanked me with a cameo in his webstrip, A Roo'd Awakening. Thanks, pal!
Taking a cue from my own mecha mischief, Wallaroo drew this steam-powered stomper of steel ;)
A picture of me, lighting up the night with my lantern =0)
10/11/2003: Another strip cameo! Ah, there's nothing like enjoying a tall, frosty root beer and the company of friends.
1/2/2004: After describing the thick snow in my corner of the world, Wallaroo decided to draw this picture of Artemis helping me plow the rails. Thanks, pal!
5/10/2004: Artemis rides my skunktaur form side-saddle. *trot-trot*
12/4/2006: Around the time of my wedding to Artemis, Wallaroo celebrated our coupling with this wonderful (and touching) picture. Thank you so much, dear friend!
