OK, if your name is Noachin, would you please resubmit your essay to me? I was deleting my spam folder messages in one lump and right as I noticed that one of them was titled actually "Submission to your mini-contest" not "Submission to your mistress," Gmail helpfully deleted it permanantly.
As far as artwork, I can't show you my work from today as the portrait is to be a gift and I can't risk the client's wife catching sight of it, but there are a few brand new art prints available in the store if you want to check it out. Including the Stinky Violet at left and Peanut at right.
That reminds me. I have two really nice printers that I use for my work and it took me awhile to get the hang of the whole print business. If any artists out there want me to wax poetic on this topic (which non-artists will undoubtably find about as riveting as an episode of Tyra's talk show), comment or e-mail.
