IT’S HERE IT’S FINALLY HERE!!!!!! And it’s so ridiculously beautiful!

My tale begins about a year and a half ago, I was working in Roanoke Virginia at a summer camp when Steve made his appearance at the Magic event of Magic events GP Las Vegas.I saw Steve’s post of the various oil alters and his first oils on canvas and i told him if he had anything left to let me know because I was interested in everything. He replied saying that the Elspeth was available and that he just wanted to do a few touches. I agreed and I waited, and I waited, and I waited.

A year went by and I went to GP Chicago. I told Steve I was coming so he didn’t have to send my queued items and that I could just pick them up since he had finished them. I was ecstatic about that alone (that is when I got my Kaalia Liliana oil after all) so I didn’t even ask about the Elspeth oil. When I got to GP Chicago and began helping Steve with his booth Kat pulled me aside and tells me that Steve has been futzing around with the Elspeth oil because he was unhappy and he would look at it go hmmmmm for a while then set it aside so she was just going to get it to me without Steve. I laughed and said I was in no rush but that would work for me. At the end of the GP I gave Steve some new stuff to put into the queue and said I could wait for that till whenever.

Some time went by and I got a message from Kat asking which Elspeth oil I liked better the one he had just finished (for the charity auction) or the one I had been waiting for, I replied that I liked the one I waited for and she said okay and went back to her work of getting me the painting.

To my surprise Steve emailed me a few weeks ago saying that he had finished the new queue stuff which included the 4 alters, the 4 sketches as well as the whole box of cards to be signed (the sleeves are all deadly allure sleeves of course). I excitedly yet patiently awaited the arrival of the package brimming with art stuff. To my surprise at the bottom of the package nestled in bubble wrap and paper towels was my long anticipated Elspeth oil. When I saw it I gasped and my friend said what’s wrong, I said nothing I’m just so excited I lost my breath.

Moral of the story is good things come to those who wait.

Oh also a few notes on the other pieces. I am so happy about the sketches I love all of the fine shading work. I am also so happy with the alters! Someone at GP Chicago traded in the Spanish Liliana for one of the predone alters and I thought it was so cool I traded one of my English ones in for the Spanish one. Also I love the silly other alters. Steve has told me that the silly ones are his favorites and they are mine too! And to top it off the tokens were a nice surprise.

Overall I am super overjoyed with everything and so glad to add these amazing pieces to my collection!!!

The Good News is Spreading!

The other night I was playing magic with some friends. It was the first time I played with these guys so when I pulled out my Ascended Minion Project playmat they were like what is that. I then explained the Ascended Minion Project and showed them my dedicated Steve Argyle binder. One of the guys then said “Your one of those people I read about on the internet”.

Moral of the story the Ascended Minion Project is spreading to even more people! Hooray!
