the magic of hot cocoa

lately I’ve been craving the magic of a hot cup of cocoa under a tarp in the rain - so cosy!

Dante stormed off into the woods. “Let him be,” Zoe said holding back the insulted Balentyne, “he’s just scared.”

Wow! This is stunning! Amazing atmosphere, superb line work. It reminds me a little of the wonderful TJ too, but do know what, and I wouldn't say this lightly, I think it might be better. I will definately be checking in every few days to see what else you've produced.

Thanks for dropping by my hamster debauchery. I fully understand your loss for words. I would be at loss myself. A natural reaction.
I love your drawings – who in their right mind wouldn’t be? But I would like to point out that one of the things - merely one, there are so many - that is so incredible is your attention to detail in your backgrounds. Quite extraordinary.

Cheers!
Son

It's been a while since I've been by. Been having a heck of a time keeping up with blogging, but it's always such a pleasure to come here, especially to keep up on the Zoe and Dante saga. I see you've been busy too! Well, can't wait to see what happens next! Sensational, as usual, Emily!
