Friends of Steve Whitaker have set up a couple of tributes on his two major community sites: jellytown here, and Steemol over on Flickr. I yanked a couple of pictures off my wall to add to the pools, pictures steve drew of me including this one of me as the Small Press Fairy.

Note to self: buy neibling a twilight turtle for upcoming birthday. Also, buy self some of those tasty no-player headphones when they come on the market this summer. And then a big hood to avoid the worse effects of the mug-me-for-my-stuff chic.
