Very skillfully drawn!

Thank you my dear - that means ALOT coming from someone of your caliber. I hope my work tells a story half as fascinating as yours does! :tighthug:

I am in love with your art! :heart:

I am so blessed an honored that you feel that way. :hug:

There is nothing so sacred to me than being blessed with the creative powers to move another soul through the stories I weave - be they in the written word or through images.

I am also most truly blessed to be able to call you a friend - and to know that your work moves me as well. You have a rare gift of both skill and passion that is rarely seen in this often bleak and cynical world these days ... we need so many more souls like you, but I realize they are still so rare no matter how hard you wish!
It is such an honor!!
Maybe one day you will honor me by revealing to me your birth name ... I completely understand if you don't but I could always hope! :blowkiss:

You know that my name is Julia, don't you? And of course you are a friend, an amazing artist and a wonderful man! I am so glad I have met you!

I don't think I knew that - but it's more of an honor that you've shared this with me ...

Thank you, Julia ... from somewhere in the center of my soul.

You are an amazing artist! If I could I would definitely pay you to sketch for me! I an not the greatest at drawing pencil to paper. I taught myself to draw digitally and have been doing so for years. Have not drawn by hand is quite a long time.

Anyways, GREAT JOB! Keep up the great work!

If you give me a photo of what you'd like me to draw it would be an honor. I could even send you the original when its done, seeing that you are in Canada and I am in the U.S.

What you've done for me is more payment than I could ever have imagined. (I'm trying very hard not to get emotional again!)

And your digital work is very good - keep it up!!! :hug:

Aww, thanks! I rarely ever get compliments on my digital work.
Anyways, I would LOVE to have a sketch of Brother Theodore. He is a famous german monologuist and is my idol for theater acting. Here is a pic of him. [link]

I honestly can't think of anyone better to sketch him then you! You are very talented and put a lot of emotion and effort into your artwork. Your offer to send the original drawing is very much appreciated! I would love that. I would be so honored to have a copy of your original artwork!
