This is a little gift piece for Kat ~Foxenawolf
and Simon *Siman2000
of their characters in DEVIA [link]
two wonderful people and fond friends. I feel like I've been neglecting so many friends recently and am often reminded that it's a sad thing to lose touch.
Kat and Si are often far too kind to me, kinder than I deserve really, and I hope that this expresses at least a little of my gratitude towards them. It's also a huge thank you to them both for the thoughtful things they've done. Kat sent me a goodie bag full of amazing DEVIA artwork a while ago (among other things) and Si also sent me an amazing Naval officer's coat last Christmas. I just couldn't accept so grand a gift, but, the thought alone was the best gift he could have given!
This piece was actually a labour of love for me too, as I ended up painting it twice! The first time, Photoshop tricked me into trusting it and then crashed before I could save (my bad), so it was a task and a half to start from scratch. Still, as I said, a thank you well worth the effort.
So here's to you Kat & Si and also other wonderful friends; David, Bryan, Kai, Sean, Cindy... far too many to mention here in fact. Remember that, even though I may not be around, I'm still thinking of you!
