We've got a little under 36 hours to go on the Fairy Tales I Just Made Up kickstarter. We are so close! If you enjoy my sense of humor at all, you NEED a copy of this book! So why don't you pledge a couple dollars, and preorder your very own copy?…

Just look at all this cool bonus swag that's available!

I love your books! I read as many of them as i could when i first saw them :D And then, years later, i see a comic in a discworld group on deviantART, and say, 'hey, i recognize that style!' So yeah. You're awesome. End of story. (Anything that could entertain 7 year old me is awesome :worship:)

Yay! Glad you found me! I keep putting books out, there's probably a bunch you haven't seen yet. When did you become a discworld fan? How old are you now? I also do some official graphic design for Terry Pratchett these days too.

You've been on longer than me then! My parents hadn't heard of it, I had to discover it for myself a couple years ago.

My sister, :iconinvdrdana:, gave me the Steampunkery Christmastravaganza book for Christmas and I found it to be an extremely hilarious piece of literature. I especially liked the illustrations and expositions. (Yay for parentheses!) I have thus decided to add you to my watch list so I see even more of your art.
