hello, i guess i'll get right to it. my name is michael j. kneubehl and i had an idea for a piece of art that i would love to have done, but since i lack considerably in the drawing department i was hoping i could get someone to possibly sketch me one up. i dont see a way to contact Tycho nor Gabe directly so i guess i will make this forum post. i talked to both Gabe & Tycho at SDCC 2010 about getting something personal made up, but they didnt know what the logistics of doing something like that in a timely manner would be, they are crazy busy! also i hadnt even had this idea yet, so yes... if someone could help me out with this it would be appreciated more than you know... but im getting ahead of myself. the piece im looking to get done is of myself sitting on a clouded ground near the pearly gates to get into heaven reading a comic book with a halo on my head, also with a stack of comics up to knee or so. i was thinking one leg up and the other either laying on its side on the ground or just stretched out forward. also i want a man standing there holding two red roses kinda looking at the gigantic line of ppl that are in line awaiting to see if their name is in the book, the line would go wayyy back and would probably be a vanishing point (look at me acting like i know what im talking about haha). anyway the man would just be standing there with a smile on his face, diligently waiting in his military outfit (you can check it out in the attached pic), standing to the right of where id be sitting also with a halo. i was also thinking that the pic could be done in a black and white sketch style with the only color being a yellow glow from any and all halos in the pic and the red of the roses.
if youre wondering what all of this is about, im in love with a girl whose father (the man with the roses) passed away a year or so ago and i myself am in failing health as i have Cystic Fibrosis and i am going to turn 30 this year. lungs only work at a combined 19% and my pancreas is shot so i also have Diabetes... so my time is coming soon, im not too worried about it, but i want to do what i can to alleviate any pain that my passing might cause ya know? this girl i love is also my best friend so we share everything and she also tells me that she loves me, which is the best feeling in the world.Images of her father:
