Just read your Silmarillion fanfiction. Now I'm looking forward to Cannae even more. :)

I've spent way too much time on DeviantArt those last days, browsing galleries and favourites, and stalking ... erm, looking at your work and at the work of your online friends and drawing course participants.  Plus other stuff, of course.  And added some photos and a chapter from a novel-in-progress to my files.  Procrastination, I'm its Queen. :D

I've not been on Deviant Art for a while; but I always check your page first when I do pop by.... and it just keeps getting better. And now a whole load of Roman drawings/paintings! My eyes are spoiled. :D

Your Silmarillion art is the best I've ever seen. It makes me happy just looking at it.

So sorry to hear you got hit by the nasty weather.  My place escaped the worst; I got away with a mess on the balcony and a fallen tree in the garden that didn't hit anything important.

I haven't been around on DeviantArt for ages. Not sure if you even remember me. ;) Looks like you got bitten by the Roman bug, too. I have that one pretty bad. :)

What happened to that Celtic story you were writing a few years ago?

It's more the Carthaginian than Roman bug, but yes, veeeery bad :) The Celtic story is on hold - again; I'd been working on it on and off since 2001, and it'll either die the death or be reenvisioned in a stronger way.

I have one of those, too. A Fantasy thingie based on 12th century Scotland / England / Scandinavia and Germany I keep coming back to. It's the one of my projects that has morphed the most.

Me, too. It'll probably end up in space at some point. ;)

Jenny - the link to darknessovercannae.com is broken.  It appears
to have one too many "n"'s in it.

I really admire your paintings. I know you must have a lot of work but if you could find some time and look through my drawings, it would be great. I`m looking for smebody who will evaluate my works and give me some advice.
Thank you in advance!

Your gallery is just epic. All the efforts that you put in details are worth to see your pieces closer and even closer. Amazing job!

Sounds like a fun idea! Unfortunately, as you already guessed, I can't participate in this.

 I quite understand - but I hope that you'll at least keep an eye on the challenge (and hopefully enjoy the images produced for it).:) (Smile)

I don't think so, sorry; I am *so* far away from Tolkien at the moment. ;)

Congratulations on reaching your goal! I can't wait for the book. By the way there is a new novel about Hannibal: Hannibal, Enemy of Rome by Ben Kane (not illustrated).

Hello.  I'm a student interested in studying the Second Punic War and was wondering if you had any recommended reading on the subject, in particular anything on the language and culture of Carthage.

Hi Hfar, there's precious little on Carthage, as most architecture and written documents were destroyed with it. The best book that I've read is by Gilbert and Colette Charles-Picard. There's a more recent one by Serge Lancel, which I haven't read, but I know his Hannibal biography, which is good.
