When I was a little girl, I had a walking-stick climb into my hair and sit down very politely on my shoulder. I was delighted by its bravery, but a friend of the family who was with me at the time (and who happened to be an insect collector) plucked it off of my shoulder and stuffed it in a plastic bag. The next time I saw it, it was pinned to a corkboard. I've never liked bug collections since then. Your dark (but really spiffy) drawing made me remember that. Great job! Esther S.

replies: "What a sad experience! Thank you for your comment!"

Another picture in the 'Intelligent Fantasy Creatures being Hunted' theme... I think I am going to need to get hold of this colouring book! This does seem to have a slightly more cartoony look to it than much of your other art work. Great Picture. Esther S. Brendel (Maiden name: Esther S. Wetzel)
replies: "I guess it will take some time until Ellen Million finally puts that book together. This picture was meant to look more cartoonish and cute than the others. (At least this time it was intentional ;-).)"

This is the perfect picture of life. It really is. It wonderfully shows that we are part of something so much bigger than we think and or know of. At any moment, we could be plucked from earth and set in a display, much like this faery one.
I truly feel sad for creatures who are taken from their home to be set on display, whether they're alive or not, it's still wrong. Esther S. Brendel (Maiden name: Esther S. Wetzel)
replies: "Thank you again, Dying Messenger! I absolutely agree with you."

Your picture is so sad and beautiful!!! It really makes me think... one thing though, isn't it spelt fae? but i'm nitpicking - brilliant picture Esther S. Brendel (Maiden name: Esther S. Wetzel)
replies: "I guess there are various ways to spell that. There are probably even more ideas around about what exactly such a creature is... Thanks for your comments and Merry Christmans!"

It's pretty barbaric, capturing little inocient fairies and killing them for a hobby. They still kind of look alive, are they indestructible? Esther S. Brendel (Maiden name: Esther S. Wetzel)
replies: "Oh my God, I think so, yes! I guess fairies would't be killed so easily. At least that means that those poor ones could be rescued ..."

Go, little fairy! Escape from that jar!
