parrotsnpineapple - Well,

Well, here it is! I don’t have a lot to ramble on about as I need to go to bed and I might just get a headache from stress. I wanted to do something special for Sterre and Otis’s birthday this year, as I’ve noticed a lot of people (including myself) focused on the death of Polt, rather than the birth of the kids. This is also my first birthday as Sterre’s new caretaker, so I decided something needed to be done. After tracking Shimmy down, chaining her to a pole and starving her, we agreed to do this sing-a-long collab thing, which is what we are best at. Also the first time I’ve worked with the Shim in this manner. If we want to get technical, a lot of the credit goes to Shimmy for sketching Otis, Sterre Wudiin and Polt as well as doing some of the starry backgrounds and colouring Otis. I simply coloured Sterre, did the rest of the backgrounds and put it all together.
Credit to Misako for some of the Sterre drawings and scribbles and a huge thankyou to Shim though for picking the song. It has been a riot to work with you. Trust me on this one folks, you were this close to getting a story about Hank Hill, A Wilson tree and lots and copious amounts of booty. Which…yknow…doesn’t really sound that bad anyways.
Enjoy everyone. Happy 2nd Birthday Otis & Sterre!

As you can tell from the post above I was chained to a pole and collaborated with parrotsnpineapple/Kate. I got fed a cracker yesterday though, so I'm not totally starving. It was a good cracker. Cheesy. I had a lot of fun despite it all, and since it's my first time doing a collab like this I learned a lot too! Kate deserves an award for the amount work she put into this and for her drive to get it done too! She's crazy in a good way. Seriously. Wouldn’t have been able to do this without her!
She asked me to post this because time zones are butts, among other reasons.
I won't be replying to any comments because I'm still on hiatus. Still, that shouldn’t stop you from giving some love to Kate for all the work she put into it!
Happy Birthday, Sterre and Otis! Two years old already? Stop aging, sheesh!

Man, I don't even know if

Man, I don't even know if I'll have a good comment, but yeah, sobbing. Whoa. I have to admit, I didn't expect this to turn out as amazing as it has. So fluent, one big picture, no seperate ones. It's one big story you go through. And it's really lovely, and so happy, something I've missed.
Well, I'm sitting here with open mouth. You both, thanks so much for this too. You're such an inspiration, you keep the stories alive. I better stop brabbeling now, haha.. Yeah.

Just completely awestruck. ♥

And yes, of course! Happy birthday Sterre and Otis!

Of course this turned out

Of course this turned out beautiful and amazing and awe inspiring. It flowed so well along with the song, I’m super impressed by the whole thing. I too really like that we are celebrating these two lives as much as honoring the dead with this. Happy Birthday to both Sterre and Otis, hope to see much more of them and watch their lives blossom. Much love for both of them.
