Thanks, David! I've been doing well...Enjoying this crisp, cool fall weather! :)

Good top hear Cirrelia! :-) Wonder if you ever got to finish that MS I sent to you..?
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
I had a file corruption due to a hack when someone sent me a zip file to download under a false name. The program they were running took my files and crypted them. So, I do not have the MS on my computer anymore.
David Shepherd - Over 30 days ago
Oh wow...what a shame. Hope you have got it sorted now
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Yes, but now I've learned to backup everything. I'd read about a quarter of your MS. I enjoyed what I have read thus far. It's really gothic and hauntingly moving...You have a way with words, David! :)

That's nice! I feel quite a lot of books are in me, if you know what I mean. It's just a question of pulling them together, and pushing them out! Best, Suzy.

About Me:
daveshepherd60@talktalk.net

Involved in the art world for too many years to recall, a prolific illustrator with a keen eye for detail, though I might say so myself my graphite representations of pets and other animals are well worth a look-see. Not that it ends with the animal world; I indeed illustrate anything that's asked of me, and do so with limitless gusto. Specialising also in cartooning, I have produced strip work, full page and double page comic art for such publications as Match, Goalmouth, Soccer Stars...and The Christchurch News! Also proficient in Fan Art, producing accurate representations of the famous, I am also a consummate creator of comic portraiture, a recipient portrayed in whatever guise (as per examples in my portfolio).
