SqueeeEEEEeeee!

I love getting emails like this:


"Hi, Jeanette.  I am told that you have created some interesting Xena art.  We make the Xena trading cards, and we are always looking for new material to put on our cards.  Please let me know what you might have.  Thanks.

Steven M. Charendoff

To which I say:

"Hi Steve,

Most of my Xena art leans more toward the cartoony though I have done
some more realistic pieces.
I used to do a rather (in)famous online comic strip with the Xenaverse
that gained quite a following.
It can be seen at:
http://www.xenafan.com/battleon/

I've also done commissions for several fans creating animation cels of
the characters.  As soon as I can I'll get some scanned for you to
see.

I would be really keen on creating some Xena cards and look forward to
talking with you soon."

And then HE sez...
"The cartoon style is actually what I am looking for at the moment, although
other styles are always welcome.  I could not access your website.
(Looks like some hacker has broken into the server that www.xenafan.com is hosted on.  It should be up soon, we hopes.)

If you can send me some scans that would be great.

I can certainly be a bit patient, if you have material that's already in the
can.  If you can dig it out, scan it and email it, that's fine.  Can you get
to it this week or early next?  Basically, I am looking to make up to 9
Xena/Hercules cartoon character cards, with 1 card for each major character,
including Xena, Gab, Herc, Iolaus, Aphrodite, Callisto, Joxer, Ares, and
perhaps a couple others."

So, how cool is THAT?  I would LOVE to do some Xena trading cards!  Again,  SQUEEEE!!!
