You're welcome. :D Indeed. I can't think of a singer today that can equal him. Especially that nowadays many singers use auto-tunes'.

Absolutely lovely, perfect. I'm a huge fan of Queen and miss that wonderful musical style. Your artwork is splendid, and Freddie would be proud of this. What else can I say?

I havent posted any logos yet, but Im planning to do so.
But I have no time at all...!!! I have 2 little boys who are having vacation from half of December until March! So during the day Im with them and in the evenings I try to work. Its not always easy, but on the other hand I feel great spending time with them as well. Take care, hope to be more on Deviant soon. :hug:
