A frontcover PIRATE PLUNDER PANIC 19thJAN2014 by darkspeeds

Hey guys and gals! I just want to post this out while I'm taking my time backtracking on getting the rest of the contacts - ie. of those who have contributed to the book. I'm also going to post all of the special contributors, fan artists, and all the fans who got their questions and shout-outs featured in the book on this page as a tribute to the success of the project and, of course, to :iconyardley: for being so nice and awesome.

Here's what he had to share with me this evening:


I got the book and it looks fantastic. You did a marvelous job on it. I could go on about it, but suffice it to say that this is the nicest, most thoughtful gift I've ever received. 

I do really want to give a personal thanks to all the people who helped. If you could give me links to their DA accounts or emails, I would greatly appreciate it so I could drop them each a quick line. 

Also, will you be at the return address on the envelope for a while yet. Even though I know you don't expect anything in return, I INSIST on sending you something as a way of saying thanks. 

I really will treasure the book always. Thanks again!

Your friend,

So once again, to each and everyone one of you who had taken the time to make this book very special for Tracy, thank you. 8-)

Wow... ^^

I told you Tracey would love the book Elson. Heck, I'm amazed he loves it so much he's personally thanking everyone who contributed to the book. It really was quite an undertaking and seeing how much Tracey truly appreciate everyone who helped speaks volumes about the guy as not just an artist, but as  person as well.

Though it doesn't come as too much of a surprise that he wants to repay you for all your efforts~ It's really nice of the guy to go out of his way for everyone. This only makes me appreciate his artwork and skill moreso, and feel proud that you did this for him. Kudos to you and everyone who took part in this. ^_^ :hug::hug:
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
You see past the invisible ink. ;) :hug:

Thanks as always Ashley, I'm truly happy that this came out really well. And I didn't expect Tracy to react this much! What an awesome feeling! :D
