  1. @kelly: Are you the artist? Nancy just sent this pic along with the announcement. If you are the artist, we’d be happy to credit you, or take it down. Just let us know.

    verrrry cute fox, by the way.

  2. She asked me if she could use it as her flyer, and I said sure. Cred would be cool. It was just funny (and exciting!) to see it on a blog I follow. It was intended as a gift for her, but I had to keep it for our critiques.

  3. Perhaps it would be better to link to my tumblr? My blogger account is more for essays than images, and kind of dead at that.


    Thanks for compliments and credit! Enjoy all things NKlehm!
