  1. I love the artwork. Its so different from everything else “out there”.

    We have llamas. We use your stand-up llama artwork as an added touch to our trophy booth when we set up at llama shows. We printed off a few extra to hand out to the public (kids) when they go past the stalls and “ohh and ahh” at the llamas.

    Now, we also have goats. Both dairy goats and Boer (meat) goats. I challenge you to create something with that species. Stand-ups would be great. Paper cuttings would be great.

    I LOVE your site. I love your creativity.

  2. I love this book and actually your site is great. Keep up the good work
