Permit me to SQUEE a bit over[info]dixiebell12 for a moment.

A little over 3 weeks ago, some very pervy friends started [info]hp_perv_awards, and I wasn't certain how it was going to turn out.  And [info]droxy, who is awesome, because she's droxy, says, 'Let's see if dix will do the art.'  And I nodded because droxy knows what she's talking about, and dix seems really cool.


If you haven't seen what dix has done to the perv website, you're missing out on something.  And those banners!!!  They're incredible.  I am so jealous!  I swore as a mod I'd never put my name in the hat for another perv award, but I've got a serious case of the 'I wants.'  I guess I figured she'd just do a template and insert names.  Oh no!  Dix is making customized banners for each winner weekly.  That deserves some MASSIVE KUDOS!!!

OMG! I must say that these banners are verrrry nice, and I can see that having a personal banner will motivate more writing. where does she find these pix and artses??

I really wish I knew. I am in awe and have no idea how she does it.

*blushes* Thank you *hugs* It's been a challenge but a fun one *G* I never thought squid could ever look so sexy (LOL) I get scared every time a new subject pops up! I just wish I had more time to work on them. Next week is going to be a nightmare with me leaving, hopefully I can make a couple of generic ones and someone and can put in the text (Droxy) for me ;)

As for the images, I google and google and google! Then I flickr and Flicker and Flicker! You just have to keep putting different key words in and sort through the garbage. It's helpful if you stick the word "vintage" before any search and you get those old classy images (except for squid). I now have a folder with beautiful vintage pin-ups and nose art from B52 bombers (LOL) Even if you can't use an image now, save it for later, you never know when you might need it.

Excellent tip! I'd never thought to include 'vintage' But still, how cool. Your knack for design and visual layout has me saying intelligent things like, 'Gah.' Fangurls ain't got know clue what a gem they've got.

We will hold vigil whilst you're away. And pray one of us can whip up something that's not too cringe-worthy.

You've set the bar high.

The French Maid one is definitely my favorite. Just about to sit down to Ch. 58 of TGC. I'm soooo excited :)
