Well, my meeting went gloriously today! I was offered two jobs, instead of just one. And I can't wait to get started on them. Cheers!

Well, my two new jobs were a contract for two new childrens books I am illustrating. I was originally doing just one. But I've been having meetings with the author on the phone, and online, and then for this last meeting in person I brought my hardcopy portfolio, and we had a great pow wow, and the author wanted me to do a minimum of two.I read them with her, and they were great stories. She wants more art from me, but hasn't written them yet. I was so flattered that she is inspired to write more just so I can illustrate them. Also, it means more money, and I've been offered the oportunity from this write my own childrens books and then illustrating them (of course). I just have to get through these two projects first. I'm pretty excited. I started yesturday and finished several pages for the second book already. I emaile dthem to the author and she loved them. I am so happy. I had to shell out $75 bucks today to fix my car, and three hundred last month. And three hundred bucks three months ago, and I'm broke. My son is going to a college in august like 2000 miles away, and the costs are adding up, and he isn't even there yet. I really needed a windfall, and it just landed in my lap. Thank you all for the encouragement. Cheers then. VeniVici

In the old days, long before radio, when ships would sail next to each other, they would talk by means of flags. The flag meanining "B" and "Z" would be flown to form "BRAVO ZULU," or "well done." As a former SD-type, I thought you'd appreciate that. I'd love to wait on your desires and fill your nights with respectful delights, like sweet treats offered in eager fun.
