    Well hello World of Tonmo!

    I have lurked often enough...for years actually...before I finally figured I should just be a member. I do not house a ceph of my own, but I love them.

    As of late I have been visiting this site much more often due to my new artwork needing good reference. Thank you TONMO and friends for updating the webspace with great photos, videos, and information.

    If you wish to view what I'm working on, you can visit my flickr or my website. I hope you enjoy :wink:

    Welcome!
    Are all your drawings water color or do you work in other media?

    Neat that you ask! Watercolor, ink, and acrylic are my preferred mediums.

    I wish I had a drawing talent! I puttered about with oils for several years for fun and to improve my observation skills but my "art" work is definitely brute force (hence the oils :grin:). I would love to do an ongoing personality impression of each of the animals I have kept but am not up to the task.

    Wow very nice work. I especially like your nature scenes, the sunset cabin is beautiful! Haha I love the octopus border (don't know what else to call it)

    @DWhatley Thank-you again for your kind words:) and I'm excited you carry a torch for art in your life! Have you thought of having a sketchbook? They take less time, for sure!

    @The_Damped Wow, I'm glad you like! Thanks so much for checking out my work! Actually, that IS a design for stationary I plan on getting in my etsy shop soon. I want to hand letterpress then, which makes it a bit difficult to do it cheaply. But I've bee asking around, and I might have someone to let me borrow their handheld press, which would be great. I'll let you know if anything comes of it :)

    @tonmo
    Thank you! Haha I was lurking far too long. It was time.

    @corw314
    Thank you very much :) Also, I cannot help myself...I am compelled to say something about what you wrote: I deeply believe we all have the talent we wish we did. I think you might surprise yourself ;)

    Also...on another note...I did check the forums, and searched the FAQ, but I did not find an answer to a question. I am not sure where to post it - so I think I will post it here in my newby-ness.

    Is there a way to favorite a post here at TONMO, so they can be saved in my profile if I want to re-visit them if I forgot where I found it? Is that essentially the "subscribe to this thread" tool?

    I have wanted a feature like that too but sadly, only subscribe (with no individual thread options) is currently available (you can have an email sent when a subscribed thread is updated but that is still an all or none option). For journals, I maintain an annual list with the species, where it came from, the keeping member and a link and have started a couple of other link collection threads that are "stuck" to the top of the forums but ATM that is the only marking available.

    If you become a supporter (a whopping $10/year) you will have access to your own blog and can use an entry to keep your own links but it is a manual process at best.

    Yes, it's the subscribe feature- which you can configure to send you an email whenever there's a reply.... I'm pretty sure we offer a weekly our daily digest in email as well...

    DWhatley and tonmo, thank you so much for answering my newbie question so quickly, and making this place welcoming. Yes, I noticed the "stuck" feature on some chosen posts and I really like it! Subscribe it is! And even tho I don't foresee a need for my own blog on Tonmo, I wouldn't mind lending a bit of financial support to this great site :wink:
