Daw, your sketches are so elegant and so entertaining. Your style is very unique. Being a new member, I haven't seen your older sketches, and so it was nice seeing your earlier submissions to the DSF. It's good to have great artists like you around at the DSF!

10-23-2008, 02:11 PM
Oh my, you have been busy haven't you? I just loooove the fairytale qualities in your work. Everything from the fun and slightly odd characters you invent to the completely insane environments. I can look at them for hours! You really have a unique style going. :bowdown:

Cya buddy!
