[artwork] I was going to hold off on this, but it's gush!artwork post time  
So I know you guys remember me going on and on about wanting your bids at help_haiti ... but what I didn't talk about yet was that the three magnificent people who won my graphic services with their bids - eurydice72 wanted a banner for her incredibly sweet and beautiful Wes/Willow fic, brutti_ma_buoni gave me three of her fics to choose from and I ended up falling in love with this amazing Darla character examination of hers, and jerakeen (the crazy-wonderful) actually ended up asking me to do movie posters for three of the most amazing and kind of cracktastically wonderful (even if they're not crack, because they're not) AI fics for shelbecat , minglingcrab and butterfly .  Below the cut you'll find those and more extra graphics I've done in recent weeks.

As usual, the graphics for fics link directly to the fic, so please, go read and give a little love to the authors as well, because they're AWESOME.

(for elizabuffy 's new lj layout)

I want to thank EVERYBODY EVER who participated in charity auctions - I cannot express how grateful I am, and awed, by the generosity of people to both Haiti relief and also to DonorsChoose (one of the graphics above was done in honor of a donation there). I'm doubly grateful because right now, I simply can't make a monitary contribution to these causes, even though I believe in them, deeply. But you guys who have bid on my work have enabled me to do something that's almost as good - contribute in the way that I *can*, so that our combined efforts are going for the greater good. And I get to do this thing I love doing in the process. If you ever wondered what good comes from these kinds of fandom auctions, fandom drives, and fandom energy, you have only to look at the thank you pages from DonorsChoose to know that we're making a difference. thanks guys, for allowing me to be part of that.

you're not alone! that one absolutely flew together - as if it was meant to be. Thanks darling!

These are so gorgeous, or so fun, or both! I adore that Wes/Willow banner. And you're a star for contributing this way.

(Psst! But you missed mine! More people deserve to see the Darla pretty!!)

You. Are. Awesome. Especially the La Mer poster. It's breathtaking. :D
my monkied brainkatekat1010 on February 6th, 2010 09:00 pm (UTC)
AWWWW *squishes you* thanks darling!! that poster was totally meant to be - it came together *so* fast. It's all because Jerakeen creates a vivid picture with words, you know?
Nebt_Het: Adam by cigarsgalorenebt_het on February 1st, 2010 12:14 am (UTC)
Those are all amazing! Can I ask what the original pic for Adam was in the La Mer picture? So much talent...thank you for sharing these!

You are one of the most talented artists I have ever seen, your posters are so stunning!!!!! and at this point I just aspire to be half as good as you are with story posters (and honestly those are the funnest things to make).

The kradambigbang is going to launch in the next few weeks and I would love to have you on board once artist sign ups go, I just want to see you do more :D
my monkied brain: AI_adam_shykatekat1010 on February 6th, 2010 09:02 pm (UTC)

And I'd LOVE to! I went over and joined so I can see the postings and stuff and sign up when sign ups are open!

Thanks for thinking of me darling, and for the awesome feedback!

These are brilliant! I love the Kradam ones and am really impressed w/ how they turned out!

I also adore my banner (as you already know). It's so lovely. *squishes it and you*

my monkied brainkatekat1010 on February 6th, 2010 09:14 pm (UTC)
Thanks darling!!! I love your banner too, and I'm so frigging glad you like it... i go over and stare at your layout just because (it's like I'm sitting in your living room or somethin)

though seriously, cassidy is sounding more and more like a bit of a train wreck than anything else with those tweets from last night. but i like his new twitter background - whoever did that can draw dude!

emilyrehimemilyrehim on February 26th, 2010 05:19 am (UTC)
i love the pics! all of them are amazing.
Do you think you can help me make one for a fan fic im doing?
my monkied brainkatekat1010 on February 26th, 2010 05:35 am (UTC)
You're very sweet - thank you so much!

And if you're curious about how to make graphics, I'd actually suggest some of the graphic tutorial communities (my favorite is good_tutorial). As for me helping at the moment, I'm sadly pretty over booked (too many projects, too little time). Sorry I can't be of more help!
