One thought on “Ca Canny.

  1. Hello! So, after being MIA in practically all of December (art AND blogging), I am finally back and as I was going through the admin side I stumbled upon both your comments in the spam section. Which was weird because 1. they are not spam, and 2. I remember approving them and also, I wrote a reply in the comments to one of your comments.

    So either things are broken (possible), or I have done something strange of which I am unaware (probable). Anyway, I fixed all that and then came over to visit your blog again because I felt guilty because your comments may, or may not, have been in my spam box. In extremely unwarranted fashion.

    To add to the complications, I could have sworn I left a comment on this very “Brigade” drawing. Because the cat in the tree reminds me of Hobbes from Calvin and Hobbes (not the alive Hobbes, the stuffed Hobbes). And I am pretty sure that was in my comment. Which is not to say it was some super great comment – and maybe you just didn’t like it. And it being YOUR blog, you certainly have every right not to post it. But I don’t recall it being anything particularly weird or anything.

    Then I thought well you have all these sections of things and maybe I’m in the wrong section. I don’t know. It will take further investigation. And now I’ve left a long rambling message here! Sorry about that. I hope you are well! Happy New Year and things! 😉
