    I have no idea what Ragnarok is but it does sound like a very yummy birthday cake with raisins in it. So thank you for that! :D *takes a bow*

    Dear Suzanne,

    Congratulations for this fourth year of artistic deviousness and adorable cynicism!* I'm a fervent reader of your blog, and long-time visitor of Wurzeltod, so I wish you *at least* four other years of rock'n'roll and indie art. :) You kick ass.

    Okay.. okay.. you can stop now (before my iBook gets all soaked with tears). *sniff*

    You're all waaaaay too kind today. I'm beginning to think it's all just a very cunning strategy to distract me and kidnap my armadillo behind my back. Hmmm..

    @Kid37: Here's a sketch for that WurzelTattooâ„¢...

    Awww.. thank you. How weird that so many WurzelReaders™/WurzelContributors® seem to have "Ragnarok" as a fixed date in their calendars when I thought it was a traditional Russian birthday cake with raisins in it until last week. Hmmm... I think it's time to Christianize my readership.

    Awww... stop iiiiiiiiiiiiiit! You're too kind, my dear.

    *blushes and hides under carpet where she finds some interesting dead bugs and spider legs*

    Now I feel terribly bad about not updating more often (I'm currently working on a presentation on Dürer's beautiful and enigmatic "Feast of the Rose Garlands").

    Please say hello to monsieur Joslin and all your sculpted creaturely friends. :D

    (P.S: Dürer's armadillrhino from 1505 says hello to the lovely JJs. Isn't it just amazing that it has a horn on its back and donkey ears?!)

    Thanks doll. Yes, that's one of my very favorite qualities of animal illustrations from that time peroid. One can almost hear their thoughts...

    -What do the ears look like?
    I dunno
    -So should I just make something up?
    No one in the civilized world will ever actually see one of those blasted things, so why not?

    gerade bin ich am goethe lesen und bei diesem zitat ist mir deine exzellente website eingefallen: « ... wie Kunst und Technik sich immer gleichsam die Waage halten, und so nah verwandt immer eine zu der andern sich hinneigt, so dass die Kunst nicht sinken kann ohne in löbliches Handwerk überzugehen, das Handwerk sich nicht steigern, ohne kunstreich zu werden.» ;-) in diesem sinne also wünsche ich dir & deiner site viele weitere jahre voller künstlerischer inspiration!
