Moi. Being silly.

No seriously you guys. Check it out. He sits on command, too! 



In other news, the weather outside is frightful, but the last semester of law school is so delightful... (not the semester itself, per se, but more my complete and overwhelming glee that the clock is ticking closer to FREEDOM AND GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT hopefully)

Wazzup artsy peeps? I really need to write journals more often. Life is pretty good for the most part. Boyfriend and I are learning to drive stick shift in preparation for IRELAND BECAUSE WE'RE TOTALLY DOING THAT AGAIN THIS YEAR. ...Driving a manual rental car on the wrong side of the road. ADVENTURE. 

In other news, I've done an awesome art trade with the incredibly talented :iconelementaljess:--she sent me autographed hardcovers of "Song of the Summer King" and "Skyfire" in exchange for magnets of a few of her characters, which you can see here: One Will Rise Higher by TheAntimonyElement

Also, HER NEW BOOK "A SHARD OF SUN" COMES OUT ON MARCH 14 YOU GUYS I'M DYING OF EXCITEMENT. Everyone should go pre-order it! 

Also, I have found my very favorite tutorial on bird flight and wing movement EVER--I learned A LOT from reading this guy's page: www.brendanbody.co.uk/flight_t…. He worked as an animator on "Legend of the Guardians" (the one with the owls, not Jack Frost) and he has an excellent grasp of the details of animating wing movements and flight dynamics. I'm literally drooling, it's wonderful. 

Also also, "Kingsman" is the most ridiculous movie I've ever seen and it's wonderful. Everyone should go watch it. It's insanely, magnificently stupid. At one point hundreds of peoples' heads explode (in purple fireworks with nary a hint of blood) to the tune of "pomp and circumstance." It has a lisping Samuel L Jackson as the bad guy. There are puppies. Duuuudes seriously.

Also also ALSO, "Song of the Sea" by Cartoon Saloon (the same people who did "The Secret of Kells") is GLORIOUS. GLORIOUS I SAY. If you love mythology or animation or Ireland or selkies, get thyself to an indie theater and try to get a peek if you can. BF and I had to drive to Bethesda to see it, but it was worth it because it is an INCREDIBLE MOVIE of PURE LOVE and TRUE ART. HNNG. :heart: Also I overheard was a tiny girl talking to her mom afterward, and the conversation went as follows: 
"Mommy, I'm a selkie now." 
"Oh really? Is this your selkie coat?" 
"Yes, this is my coat and I'm a selkie."
"When did you become a selkie?"
"When the movie ended, I became a selkie. I became a selkie three minutes ago, and now I'm a selkie." 

OMGGGG SMALL CHILD YOU ARE THE CUTEST THING THAT HAS EVER LIVED. YES, YOU ARE A SELKIE YOU PRECIOUS DARLING. YOU JUST BE YOU. :iconeeeeeplz:

Ummm I think that's all for now. I wish it was spring! Love yas. :heart:

Ohhh I am SO HAPPY that they got there safely and in one piece!!! I took my time responding to this message because I was just so insanely moved by it, I wanted to mull over my response a little. I really try to put a lot of love into all my work, but gryphons (or gryfons ;) ) have a special place in my heart, and I love your characters so much that I wanted to do them justice. It was quite a learning process but I'm really proud of how they came out, and I'm just over the moon that you love them. :heart: 

In other news, your autographed hardcovers are SO PRETTY and I was just in love with the little gryfons you drew on the box (which I am saving because DUH. I decided to repay you with a few doodles of my own. ;) It's just such an adorable idea! In any case, I am so happy that I got to trade with you, and I just absolutely cannot wait for "A Shard of Sun!" I've already pre-ordered it. ;) 

If it's not too much trouble, would you mind mentioning me and my work in a journal, perhaps? I'm looking to start getting into commissions more, but I'm a little hesitant about self-advertising. :P 

Finally, I had a really phenomenal time working with your characters, and if you're ever interested in another trade or commission of any kind, I would be more than happy to work with you. :) Thank you again for all your kind words, and have a great day!

I would be happy to do a journal!

I also tend to be very slow about things so if you don't see it in the next week or so Please. Nudge. Me. And don't be shy.

The magnets make me SO happy every time I see them. :heart:
