I am an email answering MACHINE!!!!!!! [Apr. 2nd, 2004|01:04 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hehe, I got so many emails answered this morning, I am proud =) I've got my inbox down into the low double digits - woohoo!

Damn you, Tracy Hickman, for your April Fool's joke, you had my hopes seriously up there for about two seconds =P (lol though!!).

I have some relatively mundane things to do today, including trying to buy a new camera. I can't even upload the photos I took way back when we first moved into our new townhouse, because my camera is too dodgy and turns itself off constantly =( Who would have thought dropping it repeatedly (once in the water, oops) would have somehow damaged a delicate electronic device? Hmph. I want to try to find one that uses the same kind of memory cards though, since I've invested a lot of money in those, lol.

I'll probably be painting on and off today too! Commissions, maybe a new Gothling or Taurus (the next zodiac sign!), etc. I want to do a new series of "Hidden Pictures" where I have big elaborate paintings with little hidden critters and things in them (I loved that kind of thing when I was little!!! Like the Graeme Base book "The 11th Hour"). Those are the kind of pieces that would probably take me days or weeks to finish, so I'd probably work on them on the "back burner" while I have other things going on. We'll see!

Off I go!

I LOVE Graeme Base! Zach and I found part of his Alphabet on like 3 by 4 foot panels and we bought them and put them in our living room ^^ I think you have seen pictures!

I LOVE hidden pictures like that! There was this one painting at the National Gallery of art by a guy named something Maxwell I think? Anyway, if you stood far away it looked like this elaborate forest but if you went up close you could see all of this hidden wild life, it was surreal! And it is HUGEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I'd sit and stare at it for hours!

? What about Tracy Hickman? What did she do? Ask to illustrate a book??????????

Sounds very cool! I love artwork like that!!!!

Lol - I wish he (yeah, hehe, he's a man!) would ask me to do a book cover!!!

No, he just sent out a mailing list update to his fans yesterday excitedly telling us about how the Dragonlance books just signed to be a miniseries, etc., BUT then it started sounding silly and he admitted it was all an April Fool's joke, lol. Hmph!

Tracy is a man? LOL! Zach is always telling me about Tracy and Margaret Hickman and I naturally assumed they were a gay couple! STUPID me ;P

HAHAHAHAHA I now have to read these books man, EVERYONE and their mother has read them! EVERYONE in FFXI talks about it on my linkshell! I mean, EVERYONE 0_0... I feel VERY left out, LOL!

Lol! Yeah, most people assume he's a girl (much to his chagrin!). Yep - Mr. Tracy Hickman, and Ms. Margaret Weis. Margaret used to be married to one of Matt's old teachers! But then she broke up with him and married another one of the Dragonlance authors (I think it was Don Perrin). Tracy is married to Laura Hickman, and they write books together too - lol - one big soap opera of confusion!!!

Tch tch. Silly undependable technology. Expects prima donna treatment, I guess- ie, not being dropped in water...

I loved the 11th Hour! That will be awesome!

That's still one of my favourite books of all time! I find new things in it every time I read it.

I think it would be neat to have such an elaborate painting that I'd send a little booklet along with it pointing out all of the details, etc.! =)

In my absence from lj I regret I haven't told you how much I've really enjoyed your paintings lately!!! The Golden Egg and Aries (since I am one ;) ) are new faves! =)

I'm so happy no one played any tricks on me April 1st... I don't like to have a bad start to my April, its the birthday month! =)

Hehehe ;) Do you feel like you have a split personality sometimes? Lol.

David is an Aquarius, and we get along famously =) Aries & Aquarius are very compatable (fire + air) so he inspires me! =)
