I don't know if this person is a Forum member, since people often have different names on LiveJournal, but I recently visited their LJ page -- there's some fanart that I thought was just delightful.

Marcia, is there a link to just her art?  Or are they just on each individual canon page?    :-\

Great work, Monika and Laura!  Not only touching, but creative as well.  I have also seen some of Torry's drawings and she's very talented.

three avatars I have been working on tonight for a challenge. The theme was "hero" and they had to feature other characters than Ennis and Jack.

Some people don't get the one with the moon. Did you gaze at the moon? You must gaze at the moon for a quick minute or two in order to get the full effect. :)

A larger version of the sample posted on the homepage.  This was for the cover of the 2007 gathering program book (I wound up using the next design instead though).
I was exploring the idea of the journey (both cross-country by Jack) and the passage of time/phases of the moon.  The moons are overlaid by other images/elements in their relationship.

I won't have much time to do more pics but my heart needed to do these. And who am I to argue?

Love those two guys, dearly. Enjoy!
