RE MI DO do so o/'

UFOs are among us. Interested in a Close Encounter? Want to become a Li'l UFO as well? You're in luck, because I'm offering them as icon commissions! That's right, I'll turn your fursona/character of your choice into a little UFO just like the icon I submitted earlier (Currently my FA icon): ( ) or the Wave 1 buttons here ( ). The icon will be digitally colored, animated, and sent to you via email as well as posted to FA. I'll resize the icon into whichever dimensions you request (300px x 300px or smaller), and send you that size as well as a still of the Full size.
For now, I'll open up for... 5 slots. If they fill up, I'll open another 5 after I finish those first.

$5 for the icon and full size still.

$7 will get you the icon, the full size still, and I'll even press up a 1-1/4" button with the artwork and your name (Fursona's name or your name, whatever you want) and mail it to you! That's right, the additional $2 pretty much covers shipping and sending it out!

Come to think of it, I'm reminded that the upcoming RainFurrest convention in Seattle is coming up (September 24-26).
Also, if I get enough commissions for this, something special should be showing up in my gallery once they're done, too!

So, anybody interested in becoming a UFO? Just post below in the comments, including a reference of some sort and what you want to be (UFO or Rocket), as well as if you have any other ideas to apply (What kind of antenna you want or feet/hover pods, etc. etc.). I'll note you with the PayPal info afterwards. :3


PS: Just a friendly reminder, I am also still open for my $15 badges (Either the 2-1/4" Buttons or standard size portraits!) + $2 Shipping

PPS: I also wanted to post a plug to a webcomic I had been looking forward to reading about, which is having a little contest here:…
I'm looking forward to reading this comic when it's out, but until then, I promised myself I'd participate in one of their contests.

I'm a little late, I just heard the news.

I'm sorry for the late visit, my dear friend. Not only had we not spoken in a while, but you may not have known, but I have moved out to Florida shortly after you left us. I did not know until I got a letter from your mother today. 

I really wish we hadn't drifted apart the way we had, but that's the way life is sometimes. I just feel blessed to have known you, and you are missed by so, so many, including me. 

I hope you found rest wherever you are now.

I miss you. I think about it all the time. I wish we had talked more recently. I was going through some things and put our friendship on the back burner for a long time. I regret that. At least I will always have the memories we shared together. You were a dear friend, and your departure is leaving rifts of sadness, but we are all happier and better for knowing you.

For those still in the dark, I thought you might be interested to hear the details straight from his brother, as well as the info for his memorial, which includes a skype session for those not able to attend physically.  His family is also looking for any photos or artwork of/by him to add to their memorial collage.
The info can be found here:…

Hey, I don't have Facebook.

I didn't know him, but from what I've learned of him in old things across the Internet, I can tell he was a very nice guy.

To be honest he really seems like someone I could've made good friends with, and that's not something that happens often.

Because of that it bothers me that I didn't get to meet him before his passing.

I can't do the Skype thing either, so I guess all I can do is say I'm sorry for your loss.
