Thirty

It’s my 30th birthday today! Because Ethan’s 29 when he "dies" in The Undeath of Me, I thought it would be fun to draw him celebrating this milestone himself, since it'd be his first as a vampire and all.

But I have no idea when I’ll be able to afford another scanner, so if I want to complete any art again, I figured this was something worth exploring.

And hey, since it is my birthday today...if anyone wants to celebrate by becoming a patron or making a donation on Ko-fi...I certainly won't object! :P

  3. Hope you had a good birthday! *LOL* Love Ethan! I think we were all moody 30 year olds. After that, I didn't care about my age... when I could remember exactly how old I was! *LOL*

  5. Congrats Heather on your birthday. And what a lovely way to celebrate with your comics! Such talent producing this type of art, and the digital version looks great too. Hope you manage to get another scanner soon; a birthday present perhaps for yourself. :-)
