Come home from
a horrible the usual day of work, dead on my feet and feeling very tired indeed.
See @meredithannebull‘s post announcing the winners, and see…
…holy hell, I got First Place?!
I am…stunned and stupefied and elated and even though I am still very much dead on my feet, it’s gonna be a feat to fall asleep tonight because I am so full of butterflies (how appropriate)!
Meredith, I can’t thank you enough. To know that my art gave you chills…that alone is a gift. I knew as I posted that piece to Tumblr that even if nothing came of my participation in this contest, it meant so much to me to show everyone how much Strange Magic has moved and inspired me since it came into my life, and I was so humbled and touched when it started to gain notes.
And now to find out I got First Place…
I’m honestly robbed of words (and I like to think that’s due to sheer overwhelmed emotion rather than any tiredness).
Meredith and every single person in the Strange Magic Fandom…I can’t thank you enough. This movie has inspired me to be the writer and the artist I am now, and all of you make me work towards the writer and artist I dream of being one day. Y’all make my heart sing <3
