:star: Quick update for 18 April 2015: Working on Trades this weekend; I hope to finish Dragarta's ACEO and at least make some headway on the other two.  I'm still in the planning stages on some new commissions, as well.

In other news, I have an artist friend, Peri Charlifu, in need of assistance.  He's had some medical horrors happen over the last several weeks, including a burst appendix and complications from that event.  His medical bills, as you can probably imagine, are quite high.  If you are willing, would you consider contributing to his medical bill fund?  Here is his GoFundMe page: .

thank you for joining my group. there's no restrictions as to what can be posted as long as it's pokemon or dragon related, so you may want to be careful when navigating the group.

I swear to GOD I've clicked the "watch" button for you before, but perhaps I'm losing my mind! :dummy:

Anyway, it's done now. I see your artwork occasionally popping up in some of the clubs I subscribe to, but I'd much rather get it direct from the source. ;)

LOL - I think I've even seen the notification before, too.  Your icon is distinctive.  ;-)  

Glad you're along for the ride.  I assure you, it'll be eclectic.

Haha, maybe I'm not going crazy after all. Hopefully it'll stick this time! :D

I am totally up for it. Bring it on. ;)
