Happy Birthday, Bookgirl!

Today our beloved Bookgirl turns 15! I can't believe it--they're all growing up so fast!

Bookgirl is, as her name suggests, a lover of books and reading. She's also a very talented artist who loves to draw and create art! She shares her talents with us all, and even made each of us a drawing to celebrate her birthday today.

As I have for the past few years now, I will turn this blog post over to Bookgirl herself:

Hi! Bookgirl here. Wow, I can't believe I'm turning 15! It seems like the past year has just gone by so fast. As has been said, I love to read. I'm always on the lookout for anything new and interesting in books. I especially enjoy fantasy, which I often incorporate into my own art.
I am also a big fan of the Japanese Manga styles, w
hich is what I base most of my drawings on.

As I am a bit shy still about writing on the blog, th
is post will be short. But I will add two of my own sketches to the post. I am steadily improving and hope to continue to do so in the next year.

Happy birthday, Bookgirl! You have excellent drawings, much better than I could attempt at least :)

Happy Birthday from your cousins! They really enjoyed seeing more of your artwork.

Happy birthday! I've always viewed artists like yourself as having some kind of magical superpower I could never wrap my head around, so I'm quite envious of your talent.

Mind if I ask if you have any favorite artists whose work you really admire?

Happy Birthday, Bookgirl! I love reading, too! And drawing! My love of both was borne out of sheer nerdiness while I was in elementary school. Now, at nearly 30, I am also still very much a reader, (wannabe) artist, and (total) nerd.

Anyway, may God bless you. I hope you have an awesome and inspiring year! :-)

I love your art, Bookgirl! I'm going to show it to my almost-12-year-old, who also loves to draw. Happy birthday!

I've been trying to think of something original to say, but words fail me. Happy birthday. Have you ever considered drawing chess pieces?
