Artisty-types.

My wife and I getting divorced, and she is granted temporary custody while the courts decide where they will ultimately go. I live in Philadelphia, she is soon to live in Oregon, so my two daughters will be far away from me. And this Christmas will be their first without me.

I am writing a short Christmas story, describing all the heroic adventures Daddy (me) embarks on to make Christmas so awesome - and "explaining" why I won't be with them this year.

I am in dire need of spot illustrations. I need ten of them to be exact, so if you can possibly draw a little bit for me - color or black and white - I would be very grateful. This book will really be something special for my girls.

Not to worry, you'll have a good time drawing lots of weird gloopy monsters and globby creatures out to destroy Christmas - and me stopping them, of course.

Please PM me or email me at locustsofdeath@googlemail.com if you can help. Cheers.

Jeez, I've been kind of in a daze all day - that first sentence should read "My wife and I are getting divorced, and she is granted temporary custody of our daughters while the courts decide where they will ultimately go."

I guess that's not a good way to advertise my writing, all of those errors...

Two down, eight to go.

Cheers to whoever stickied this. I appreciate it.

This is a horrible nightmare. Hang in there, Locusts. If I could draw, I would help you out.

It's all right, that's in every contract.
That's what they call a sanity clause.
You can't fool me, there ain't no sanity clause.

If I had an artistic molecule in my body, I'd offer my services.  As it as, all I can manage is a virtual (entirely manly, platonic etc.) hug.  Miserable news.
