Kris,

Those three apparitions are an amazing body of work and reflect a great deal of effort.

I think I'm safe saying that everyone here on the Sketching forum is proud of you.

Kris,

Definitely send your sketch to Dr Richard McKim at the British Astronomical Association for them to include it in their archives. He told me he would very much welcome planetary sketching contributions and his specialty there is Mars sketches. They do require a person's real name FYI and the city/country where they live to accept a sketch, so no online handles. His email is: richardmckim@btinternet.com. He told me to pass along that he will welcome all sketches from CN members.

i probably would not have been so busy sketching mars if it wasn't for this sketching forum and it's members. comparing and supporting other's work and spurring each other on is fun, and necessary to learn and see more.

i may be wrong but i've got the impression that there has been a surge in the amount of sketchers here over the last 4 or 5 years. this pleases me a lot, ccd's are absolutely great but there's something special in drawing behind the scope.

too bad we're scattered around the globe, it'd be great to see the paper sketches and meet the people behind them. luckily i've met Jef already, Belgium is small enough for that

Bill: i'll send it to richard McKim. it's funny .that i've learned a lot from a book from his hand (mars observers guide) and would now send a sketch

similar for Jeffrey Beish, it's nice to have him on the forum, i learned a huge deal from his book on observing mars.

totally blown away by this - and the effort it implies. One of the best ideas I have seen on the forum. Simply wonderful.
