Hi Everybody! If you're at all a fan of my sense of humor, you need to check out my new book, Fairy Tales I Just Made Up. It's full of Snarky Bedtime Stories for Weirdo Children, and we're doing a kickstarter to raise the funds to print it.…   You only have until August 5th to kick in a couple dollars, and get your very own copy, so please please please support this awesome project!

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.
