i love your art blog awards

so with the season of giving just lurking around the corner.. which also reminds me of my pending post cards and atc's that i should send out through snail mail.. i really hope the recipients are not pissed off already. i want to apologize and tell you that you are always on my mind.. i just didnt realize how difficult it is to find a place to print them all..

and as for the atc's tho, only one person will get the few that i have done so far, and he is gonna get it himself! hehe.. *.*

so while i am still on the hunt for a great quality printing shop, let me give out a badge award to those bloggers i love to visit and have even built friendships with.. despite being across oceans and time.

alina chau
bella sinclair
studio lolo
valgal art
willie baronet
yoon see

and of course, to penelope who started illustration friday and illoluv who introduced the group to me!

to grab this award badge, copy and paste the following:

there are so much more people that i want to give out this award to but im summing up the first 17. i may be adding more on this post in the coming days..

so i am encouraging everyone to pass on the badge award to your blog friends who's artworks and words of encouragement inspire you and cheer you up as well. many may have not read how my blog used to be years back, but the gloom and doom have finally ceased from lurking over my life. the blog world and illustration friday has brought so many people together and some may not know that the simple uplifting words and comments from everyone has helped me pass through those dark days.. and helped me gain confidence, which was totally null before. that chapter of my life has been written and closed now. and bright lights and colorful years are surely ahead.

thank you to all.. actually, this badge is for everyone! feel free to place it on your blog, and award your friends too, just tell me so i can add your link here as well.

update: here is an alternative, click here to get the badge. it will open on a new window. 8)

Hi it's the dark guy from San Diego. You know recently a good friend of mine suggested ways to make new friends on blogger. This is why I planted the seed of an invitation twice on your blgs, and as I can see it has worked. Did not mean any negative energy to pass.

I admire the color and depth of your badge art. I shall continue to return and comment for I also admire your articulative modesty and humble encouragement.

I think that after of my year in Liver Chemotherapy--put into remmission I deserve a few good friends like yourself, and man I am pleased that you are an artist.

See you soon on my site? Take care my new friend, and all of yours as well...


25/9/08 2:43 AM  
Blogger atomicvelvetsigh whispered...

hi jesse! ohh im so sorry to hear that you had went through chemo.. but glad to know its in remission now..

Blogger AscenderRisesAbove whispered...

I wanted to drop you a note about a change that I am making on my blog. I mentioned something about doing this earlier.
I am changing the format soon to create a quicker download and I plan am taking my recprical links to it's own page. But I wanted to make the recprical page special - rather then just listing people I thought I would put a little thumb photo or the logo of the site and a brief description. I appreciate your listing of my link on your site so I wanted to see if you were interested in this. If you are interested please send the image you would like to use and a short description to this address. I plan to create that page before I update my main page template. Right now the bare bones link page is at:
It will be a slow process as I will only be able to work on it a little bit a day.
Let me know if you are interested.
