I just pledged $30 to your project for a reason that may sound a little odd.... This morning I awoke and logged on to Kickstarter to check my own campaign. Nothing had happened overnight so I went browsing on my iPad, in bed still, for other projects worth funding. This was when I stumbled across your artworks. I'm not exaggerating or joking in any sense- the abandoned gas station illustration rendered me immobile for about two minutes. I was actually haunted so much by the image I couldn't move my hands, arms or legs and was filled with a really odd emotion. Something between terror and nothingness it was. Eventually I pulled myself together but I just wanted to let you know that no artwork has ever had that effect on me before.
Thank you so much Chelle for making me feel an emotion I didn't know existed. I woke up feeling normal but your work made me feel alive.
Yours in awe

I really love your line work and one of the few watercolor artists that actually gets it right. I can't wait for my postcards! From an aspiring artist, this is amazing!
