Anonymous asked: have you met any other celebrities that you've drawn? you're incredibly talented and i love your work so much!
I’ve given The Horrors quite a lot of fan art (look here) but meeting Benedict and Martin was exciting on a whole other level. Thank you very much :-)
benedictcumberb1tch asked: I am so happy for you regarding meeting Benedict and Martin but also so jealous as I am desperate to meet them too! I saw your profile and it was so weird because we both live in Yorkshire and its weird to think somebody else who loves Benedict lives so close to me haha! Also my uncle is an artist (David Hockney) meaning I have been brought up around art all my life and I honestly want to tell you that yours is some of the best work I have ever seen and you should be so proud of yourself x
Hello I have already replied to you on twitter but I wanted to say THANK YOU very much for the lovely message, it’s cool that we live in neighbouring towns and EXTREMELY COOL that your uncle is DAVID HOCKNEY!? I find this incredibly exciting. Thank you again m’dear.
dean-thegreeneyedhunter asked: Your art work is amazing by the way! You're VERY talented :) And i am so so happy for you that you met Benedict and Martin :D I was just wondering, how did you meet them, like why did you? I am both happy for you and insanely jealous ;) haha!
Thank you so much m’dear, and thank you EVERYONE for the wonderful messages, I don’t think I’ll get chance to respond to them all but I am VERY grateful! Basically I know a guy called Ben who is Benedict’s friend and he needed to raise money for a drama school, and I donated £300 of my own money and this was the reward :-)
I present to you my most recent tattoo that i got for my 14 year old sister who suffers from self harm and sever depression. I got this tattoo because she has loved butterflies her entire life, the quote “Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well.” and of course the butterfly project for those who self harm.
My sister is my little angel, and i would do everything and anything for her. It breaks my heart to see her hurting like this and i will love and protect her until the day that i die.
I would like to thank the lovely Wryer.tumblr.com , for her drawing coming up on my dashboard and allowing me to have a beautiful way to love and support my sister through this. You are wonderful and have a great talent. Never let anyone tell you otherwise :)
It looks perfect. Your sister is going to absolutely love it.
Today was the best day of my life. I can’t believe I was lucky enough to meet two of my favourite actors in the world, I can’t express how grateful I am. As I took the train to London this morning I was more nervous than I’d ever been, I thought that as soon as I saw Benedict I would surely faint or burst into tears… and I expected to be really intimidated by Martin Freeman because he’s such a big star now! But as soon as Martin came over and shook my hand I just felt happy, he was so lovely and his smile warmed the cockles of my heart. I must admit that when Benedict came over and stood next to me I felt very shaky and as though my heart was ready to burst out of my chest, but as soon as he asked my name and spoke to me it was simply wonderful. Martin was a real charmer and Benedict was so funny and unlike anyone I’ve ever seen before.
They were both so incredibly kind about my artwork, it was so bizarre having two such talented people say that something I do is “amazing”, when I look up to them so much. As they took the drawings out of the envelopes and gasped and praised me I felt like my heart was going to explode then and there. They said it was the best fan art they’ve ever received. It made me want to break down. To have Benedict Cumberbatch say I’m “talented” is something which I just can’t handle or comprehend. I just couldn’t get my head round it. I feel so overwhelmed right now, the whole experience was so very surreal. I feel so incredibly happy, it was so amazing. I feel kind of dumbstruck right now, I can’t believe it happened to me.
This was the drawing I gave to Benedict as a gift, and this one for Martin. I’m keeping the signed one for myself, forever.
Also I thought I’d just point out the LENGTH OF BENEDICT’S FINGER I MEAN WHAT IS THAT
I met Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman today. I can’t wait for this picture to upload, oh my goodness gracious me. I’m so happy I could explode.
I can remember my dreams almost every night, and although they are often vivid and emotional, they never really ‘affect’ me when I’m awake, but last night I had dreams so full of jealousy, loneliness, pain and death that after the initial “phew, it was only a dream”, I sobbed in my bed for a good five minutes and then felt so empty. I didn’t know a night’s worth of dreaming could cause me to feel such inexpressible sadness, I know it was only a dream, but I really felt it. I felt as though I really did see what I saw and run screaming, seek solitude and howl, wander completely alone and lost and broken, sit back and watch everyone fall away from me, watch someone die. I can’t stop thinking about it. I feel completely hollowed out this morning.
