Every time I look for creative input for my own mod, I come back to your work, flip through a few pages and immediately have a new idea I can work around with in one way or another. The tone and richness of your marvelous creative writing and of course your passion and skill are so inspiring to me. It's a blessing to have you as a community member. Keep up the good work!
Wow, that's an awesome compliment. Thanks so much!

The misspelling has been delt with. :D

I'm pretty sure I have all of the original drawings up in my attic. But I did a lot of digital touch-up on them, so the final version for some of them look pretty different from the originals. And now I do everything completely digital, so there's no hard copy at all.

You can't save the plaaaanet.
Oh lovely. :rolleyes With support like that, one wonders how Keen doesn't just toss up his hands and let Mortimer have his way with them all.... (I suppose that nearly happened in canon.... :mort )

At least he got his macaroni. :foot



For some reason at first glance Lily looked teenager age to me. Probably something to do with all the detail in and around the face.

About the name of Keen's brother... (I'm a bit unsure whether I should post this here or on your site since that's where it's mentioned, but I'm already writing here) there isn't a canonical name as far as I know, but if you want suggestions, maybe Don? There was a time when I thought that was the name of Keen's brother because I didn't fully understand the phrase "Billy dons his brother's football helmet." :dopekeen "Misconceptions" material.



By the way how did your nonverbal Mortimer give his mission to Lily? Text message? :p
"Friendly. Very friendly. Too friendly." Image

Yeah. I wanted her to have the teen-like dismissive expression, so that's probably why. Ended up looking like a teen's head on a little kid's body. :lol

That is hilarious! :lol

Yeah, I was actually thinking the same thing when I wrote that. But I figured it doesn't matter whether he actually talks as long as you never actually SEE him talk.

Also, here's what happens when Mort stiffs Lily her money...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iayLBI7nsE0
