So let me preface this by saying that Mrs. Amateur has a big family. Both sides. We joked because both sides needed to be shot from a landscape view at our wedding. So Christmas would break us all. However, the grandkids (her generation), spouses, and great-grandkid (ours) do a Secret Santa. A young woman named Jessica drew me. Let me say right now I’ve been amazed by her artwork for some time (because Mrs. Amateur shares it with me often). Like, honest to goodness makes me say “Holy shit, that is amazing.” So, when I was asked what I would like (we keep the gifts to a 20 dollar-ish limit), I decided I wanted a drawing of Tum from her. I knew it would be good, and to me worth far more than twenty dollars I might add. Thing is, I had no idea how good.
Yeah, not even a drawing. A full blown 8×10 painting!!!!!! I’m still speechless and I opened it several days ago. Thank you just seems kind of an understatement after receiving something like this.
At the same time, my mind raced and I told Mrs. Amateur that Jessica needs a Deviant Art page if she doesn’t already have one, because I think she could do very well with the World of Warcraft community. Turns out she doesn’t, but she does have a Wix page that shows off some of her previous work. I don’t know at this point if she’s accepting commissions. It wouldn’t hurt to ask (my feelers didn’t yield any positive or negative results). I don’t see harm in asking her and if I hear outright that she is, then I will definitely post the news right here! If she doesn’t, then you’ll hear no qualms about my one of a kind!
