Smile! :3 Dropped off a hug for you and and all your characters~ <3

You got hugged !!!!!!!!!!!!!Spread the DA love around! (you can copy and paste this message on their userpage!)
*I changed the rules so I'm not breaking any. >:3*
1- You can hug the person who hugged you!
2- Try to hug 6 other people! This is about spreading the dA community love!
3- You should hug them in public! Paste it on their page! Then, people can take this idea and share the love too!
4- Random hugs are perfectly okay! (and sweet)
5- You should most definitely get started hugging right away! Send This To All Your Friends And Anyone Who Might Need a Hug!

Have you heard of the comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland? Apparently there's a Kickstarter project to hire 100 artists to draw their own interpretations of it and make them in one massive compilation book. It's at…

I saw that you're not on the list. :/ I wonder if there's a way you can join the project? I think it would be awesome if you could make your own Little Nemo strip and contribute it to the project.

I love your art and your hilarious comics! I'm really impressed with your crazed faces and all. By the way, when I got the flight series, excluding 8, I was so happy that I got to see your comic Fairy Market! I never knew I got to see your drawings from actual paper than on a mac screen!

Hello, I tried to add you to at least one of my groups because you accepted having at least one thing of yours in my group, but the invitation expired, so I've decided to send a general message to the people who fit this category, since sometimes people just don't notice the invitations. If you want to join in the future, I'll accept you.
