Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Welcome to the message board for tadwilliams.com. All comments are welcome, whether kudos or brickbats. However, please bear in mind that Tad would like this to be a friendly, civil message board, at least in the relations between users. We reserve the right to remove postings, or even ban postings, from anyone who crosses the boundary of reasonable taste. Basically, you can argue vigorously with someone, but watch your language, okay? We have a lot of young readers as well as grown-ups, so please show them some respect.

But the main requirement here is: have fun.

I made some.  It's a little weird and not terribly relevant.  There's a dragon, but it isn't a very Tadly dragon... 

But if you ever wanted to know what's going on inside my head while I do routine surgeries...  This is pretty much it.

Re: We should probably have more art in here.

Yes. We need more artwork around here. Thanks for posting something. I have a few small things myself, which I'd like to post sometime soon.

At first I thought the blots were blood smears. I thought, "she actually makes artwork out of her patients' blood?!' Then I read the summaries and realized it wasn't blood.

My favorite is the heron. Such detail on the wings!

The giraffe was an interesting choice. I would have thought you would have had the head face left, but you went with it facing right. These are all neat.

Re: We should probably have more art in here.

Thanks for the feedback, guys! 

Ron, I am absolutely indiscriminate enough to make cartoon animals out of blood smears.  However, I feel like my wider audience (aka everyone who doesn't work with blood on a daily basis) probably would be a bit unnerved.  So I toss those.  I think people automatically feel like anything to do with blood is serious or at least trying to seem "edgy" or "dark."  Today I made a dancing hamster.  I am not serious about very many things.

Re: We should probably have more art in here.

Dancing hamster is on that same Tumblr page now, and I should have another doodle or two in the next couple of days.  Didn't do one today because I was interviewing for a job!  Ohboy!  Look at me being a real grown-up!

Re: We should probably have more art in here.

I like your art, Sam, too. Very imaginative.

Pirate daughter got her first art job - illustrating a book for children. *glees* She's excited and nervous at the same time.

I have discovered Zentangling. I'm having quite a bit of fun with it. And, when I get some work worth inflicting on anyone, I'll scan and post.

Re: We should probably have more art in here.

Awesome news, Em! Let us know when it's out, so we can buy copies.

Yes, I'd love to see your Zentangling artwork. :)

Yeah, drawing while driving is a bad idea.

Here's pirate's daughter current project.

I do not present this here to ask for donations, just to show what she's up to.
