This is a commissioned work of my avatar/fursona as envisioned by fantasy artist CurioDraco ( http://www.furaffinity.net/user/curiodraco ). The character is ©me, but the artwork is ©her. :)
That's right, ladies and gentlefurs. My sweetheart of a mate Kite didn't just stop at gifting me with an incredible piece of art. Oh no, my friends. She also took that incredible piece of art and had it turned into a full size blanket! This is a photograph of it. If you look closely you can see my fingers in the corner as I held it out. Kite helped me take the picture. Love you, babe! ^__^
Needless to say I was...floored when I saw this. Once again, Kite made me look at the finished art on my computer first and "forbade" me from turning around until she had the blanket pulled from its hiding place and ready to show me. I very nearly fell back in my chair when I saw it. It was a moment that just had to be seen. A moment I will never, ever forget.
The blanket now has top billing on my bed. Sometimes I catch myself just staring at it and getting all giddy inside. One of the best parts is that when I sleep, I'm positioned directly under the right wing. I must look adorable. Even when I'm drooling on my pillow. ^^;
This is easily one of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever received from anyone. Curling up under it warms me as much on the inside as it does on the outside. Thank you again, Curio and Kite, for making this happen!
