seeing as everyone has raised so much awareness for breast cancer on facebook recently, I would really love it if my tumblr friends/followers would reblog this post to raise some awareness for the condition i suffer from - cystic fibrosis. there’s no cure for my condition BUT we are so close to getting one. All we need is more awareness! cystic fibrosis is a GENETIC condition that mainly affects the lungs and digestive system. It’s a fault in my dna, and it causes thick sticky mucus to gather around my lungs and other organs.this then makes me more vulnerable to dangerous bacteria growing in my lungs and more lung infections. with every lung infection i get, the tissue in my lungs get damaged more every time. around 2.5 MILLION of you in the uk carry the “cf” gene, and if two people with the cf gene have a baby, the baby has a 1 in 4 chance of having cystic fibrosis. thats what happened to my mum and dad and me, and to around 10,000 people in the uk. there are only 80,000 people in the world with my condition and its a very serious life-threatening disease. the life expectancy is just 41 years old but with ongoing research it goes up every year. nobody knows what it is unless they know someone with it (like me) so PLEASE PLEASE would anyone just reblog this to raise awareness. children and young adults still die because of this disease because some people have it A LOT worse than others. I may look healthy on the outside but on the inside its a different story. my condition will inevitably get worse over time but there are treatments and medication to delay the damage. If you want to donate any money to the cystic fibrosis trust you can just text CFTG14 and the amount you want to donate (for example £1) and text it to 70070. There is a high possibility that a cure will happen in my lifetime, we just NEED the awareness. unlike cancer, we don’t have millions of pounds being donated every day and it would be AMAZING if it happened to us. If you don’t want to donate thats fine, just please reblog or even like it to make it appear on everyones dashboard. thank you!
You know, it’s been about a year since I did these and what previously represented a huge step forward in my drawing skills now looks woefully unpolished.
Exempt from this, of course, are the wonderful colours done by alkalineazel.
Leaving this here, then, as a booster to remind me why I ought to keep practising. Exams are coming up and I’m determined not to put what I want to do on hold for them, while still giving them my best.
My shot at Adamis’ first page of the new Sonic Boom style comic.
I hope he approves.
I’ve got to say, the new style is quickly growing on me, although I’m still not hugely keen on Knuckles having fingers as well. Oh, well.
The rest will come at some point.

One of the best ways to start a new month is to have a new wallpaper on your PC, phone, and tablet! Check out all the new wallpapers in our Anniversary Zone and let us know which ones you pick. :)
Including loads by me! :D
I decided to make individual character wallpapers from the group shots as especially on the team effort group wallpaper there’s some great artwork that needed some more exposure.
Take a look, we’ve got loads of wallpapers on there now, and probably more still to come…
