Makani made my day today. It was an OK day. Pulled weeds, went to work, grocery shopped and came home, but something made me check my subscriptions to “friend’s” Livejournals and Harry Potter fanartist Makani (Heather Campbell) had posted no fewer than 5 new Potter drawings (3 canon and 2 gloriously noncanon) and a portfolio she drew while at the zoo.
Why is creativity like this as good as a Cheering Charm? One of the reasons I enjoy Harry Potter fandom so much is because it seems to compel people to write, draw, sing, film, in response. And they share it so generously. Me? I make lists =). Artists rock.
New artwork: Moody (created for TLC’s widget project) … Snoopy Snape … Ginny and Molly (definitely non-canon)

Here’s the freaky thing. It is a year ago to the day that Heather agreed to let the Lexicon publish her work! Happy anniversary, my dear!
Edit: I just wanted to say that I posted this (my time zone) on 9/10, but the server’s time was 9/11 already. I’m sorry if my happy anniversary wish to Makani seems in poor taste, but the server timestamp was unexpected.
