Sea Monster update and other Mondaily

Wheee! A last-minuteday sea monster sponsorship nudged us over the line to a drawing for a free original - all sponsors of this project and current subscribers at Torn World are entered to win one of the available originals. I'm also drawing the winner of the monster versus monster poll!


Congratulations to pixiewildflower! You won a free ACEO print of any sea monster! You may choose any of the ones shown here, or wait until the conclusion of the release and pick one on June 1.

And the winner of an original is: meeksp! Congratulations! Thank you for helping make this project happen!

I got most of 'When Sea Monsters Attack' written today in a frenzy of writing inspiration - 1500 words so far, and I'm guessing another 1000 words to polish it off.

We are $14 from adding monster #21, and I am planning to finish the two remaining and close up sponsorships this afternoon... I'm putting the polish on a programming job, have finished up my business emails, and am just about ready to sit down for some monstery art while Guppy naps. When they're done, the project will be closed... so that I can launch my Kickstarter tomorrow! Eeee! It has been approved, so all I have to do is push that SCARY SCARY green button and cackle about how 'It lives! It lives!'


Have the latest of my sea monsters to be posted. The 'Wheeeeee' sentiment here seems applicable to my mood right now.

I took Guppy shopping, and she was adorable. There were squawks, but some food from the deli kept those mostly at bay. While we were waiting in line at customer service (she lost one of her sheep mittens, and we went to see if someone had turned it in - which yes! They had!), and a little girl (maybe 3?) was behind us smiling shyly at Elsa. I tried to convince Elsa to wave, which she very suddenly remembered how to do, and she was SO pleased with herself that she started giggling in delight and babbling and wiggling in excitement. Lots of smiles, so very cute.

Weather is cold, but clear, and not viciously windy like it's been.

Sea monsters now. Finished what programming I could for the moment.
