love this cartoon! A flying turtle! Is this the creation of Discworld?
Obliquely, perhaps. Mostly, though, it's just me going "Okay, I have a turtle and a funny looking little dude, and magic. Um. What do you do to a turtle to make it look magical or something?" And then the wings happened.

Which is pretty representative of most of my creative work.
Oh, goodness, how I've missed your beautiful whiteboard doodles. I still have the flupperbye one saved on my compy. *sniffles with joy* Sooooo cute!
Y'know, I think I have a whole bunch (well, 3 or 4) from college that never got uploaded. I should probably do something about that.

Also, I never expected to see the word "beautiful" in association with them. :P
