  1. I cannot begin to tell you how much these podcasts mean to me! There are so many things that have been lingering in my mind the past few months (some my whole life) and they are mentioned and talked about on these episodes. Thank you so much for all you do! Then to Steve I want to say, I have been doing detailed illustrations since I was a child and only in the past few years started to realise how strong a thing it is in me. Your work inspires me so much and I am even at a point where I am about to do a post grad certificate in education…hearing he is also a teacher…just sends so many signals to my heart. Anyway, thank you to you both. Have a look at my website if you like:) Liebet
