What does that mean? Will you now be able to take my bets for the next NFL championship and I get to select a picture of a hunk instead of selecting numbers? I want o buy three hunks. Hubba bubba!


Seriously sweetest Nessa, congratulations. I am looking forward to meeting my bookie sisterfriend this year! Tsup!

OOH! That's great, Vanessa..what a great group of illustrators..how cool is this?

And, you are cracking me up..tired bum, huh? And in need o' sleep..I hope you get some rest tonight! Wishing you a good night's sleep..sometimes that's all it takes is to just get that rest.

So glad to hear of the fact that you love all of that work..it's awesome that you are busy. I wish you nothin' but smooth times with the projects..and you're right..every client is a different journey..some move so in sync and others are a bit more jagged, but they're all experiences for a reason, right? I had a really tough project once, pregnant and with 4 hours of sleep. I was about to scream and cry..it was tough, but I got through it. That job, I layed on the floor with my hand over my eyes for about a 1/2 hour. It helped. I got back up and just plowed through. I'll never forget it. Thank goodness for time. It erases some of the pain and then I like to believe you grow most from those challenges. Or you just kick a wall and yell..that helps too! : )

Anyway, you go girl. I'm happy to hear from you - I am working and working..trying to work on a character in different angles and such. It's TOUGH! How do you do it?! I have a lot of work ahead, but I'm loving it.

I do wish you had a year to do a book too! I can't wait to see what you're workin' on. It's really awesome to see the Tellulah book Nester..it really is.

Wishing you rest! : )

You know, one thing that amazes me is that you can still be so humble even though you're totally BRILLIANT!! The first time I came to know you I went 'ga ga' over your work, and now the more I know you, I'm like 'ga ga ga ya ya ya'... (^O^) Peace, xxx
