    Wow, look at how many people you have inspired! It is interesting to see how many entries are so similar — it is like you have taken the pulse of your fans, to see what we are thinking of in the world, or how we interpret your art…

  25. Ali says:

    Happy Birthday Marina!!! I have already sent you fanciful wishes, but may you have many, many more!!!
    Looking at these entries is so hard, because I see them and think that not a single one is worse than mine, but they’re all so much better.
    On the other hand, I shouldn’t be thinking such things because each one is so unique and different that it’s almost impossible to say which is really, truly “better”.
    I’m sure whoever wins has more than deserved it!!!

  26. Allegra says:

    Ooh, I had so much fun working on my submission but I absolutely LOVE the Lillith and Medua submission – clearly I’ve found a kindred spirit! I’d love to see you make her dolls – something with a feminist bent!

    A very Happy Birthday, and many Happy Returns of the Day!
