A month or so ago, Ardian Syaf asked me to do a foreword for his sketchbook for the Singapore Toy Game & Comic Convention, because, as he said, “Considering you’re one of the person who discovered me before Marvel or DC comics did, I think it’s just perfect ” So of course I was delighted to, and I’ve just received a copy of the sketchbook in the mail. It’s beautiful, which I expected.
What I didn’t expect is that the last page was left blank so he could do drawings for people who picked up the sketchbook, and he’s done a head shot of Chance for me there, with a little note that says, “Thanks, Catie!”
I’m actually sitting here crying with surprise and delight over that. (And oh, god, the electrician just showed up so I’ve answered the door with a red face and teary eyes, *laughs*)
I’m posting the foreword I did for him behind the cut, just in case anyone wants to read it, but mostly, I have to show off the sketch. *beams foolishly*
