Huh. Well, how about that.
That was kind of startling.
The description reads: "basicly the BEST TT ART i could find along with great music....". From this we can learn three things: 1) YouTube member missjumpcity can't spell 2) She has deplorable taste in music (High School Musical? Seriously?) and 3) She has impeccable taste in fanart. Yes, from 2:05-2:14 and 3:12-3:36, two of my Teen Titans fanworks are exhibited--the second time this has happened in a slideshow AMV.
I'm flattered. I think.
Oh, and I'm not credited at the end along with other artists, but that's okay because neither were TGN compatriot Buzzard or professional Glen Murakami. Anytime I can be categorized along with those two talented people, it's okay.

This quote and design, prepared on Adobe Illustrator, just won a bumper sticker contest held by the right wing grassroots political organization Mattot Arim. I got nationwide printing, 1,800 NIS, and a daylong of Happy :-)
This was my first ever practical application of Adobe Illustrator and as such the first time my just-completed Computer Graphics course paid off--may it continue to do so for ever more!
