I feel so much right now, my heart is bursting. You lovely loving human beings, you have donated a total of $1183.45 to help my daughter recover the things she had lost to a burglary. She told me that all those shoes that were taken, she won't be replacing, but instead will buy a new laptop, since her old one is dying, to she can make more art and more beautiful covers for me. She asked me to give you this message (and she drew the picture you're seeing above):
"I cannot express my thanks to all of you through words or images in a way that can convey the depth of my gratitude - you took an awful situation and completely turned it around, showing me the silver lining and the good that can come from darkness. I'm sorry I didn't have the time (or materials) to do anything more, but this is what I can give you for the time being. Thank you. So much."
Once again, thank you from me. Here is to more great art, more gorgeous book covers, more love and hugs and kisses and borscht and vodka and more borscht and more vodka and, yeah!
If you're interested in what kind of work my daughter does, besides book covers, check out her portfolio. She is a graphic design student at Chapman University in Orange, CA, and will be thrilled to help you out with illustrations or cover design or any other design work. (Shameless mom plug here, because I'm very proud of my baby.)
Love, love, love you.
