Hi--I love your painting, I would like to post it on Facebook tomorrow for May 25. I will credit you as the artist. I think it is beautiful and I know other Discworld fans will appreciate it as much as I do. Thank you!

I was searching for the full verses for "All the little angels" and this came up in the search. I'm supremely glad that it did. Stunning. If this doesn't bring a tear to your eye you either are not a Discworld fan or have no heart.

This is simply beautiful! Night Watch is one of my favourite Discworld novels, because is awesome (but sad too).

This is great - so vibrant but sad, just like the song.

Legs are a little small, but I like how you caught Vimes's kind of endemic gloominess; Lotsa bright colors but he still looks pensive which fits perfect. :)

I do forget it every year, which annoys me because I want to do something to commemorate the Glorious May 25th. Thank you for making some very splendid artwork that really does commemorate it in a very striking manner. Beautiful, simple (in a very good way) and impressionistic in its style. Wonderful use of watercolour, really adds to the feel of it.

One thing - I see no egg ;)

You're welcome. Don't worry about the egg, it works fine without - it could just have been a nice little addition there between his feet, or even just some eggshells

...and now I keep singing the bloody song. But I look forward to see more Vimes-art from you (he's one of my all-time favourites).

...how do they rise up, rise up, rise up?...
