So, what do you think?

It’s true, there really are Angels in this world, and the awe-inspiring banner above proves that.

I was contacted a few weeks ago, by a man I only knew as “Reverend Strone”. I now know him as Daniel Falconer. Daniel expressed an interest in bringing artwork back to this Blog and my website “”. He then provided me with a link, as a reference.

Mr. Falconer is a very gifted Graphic Artist. I was simply amazed that he would even offer such generosity.

I am blown away.

There are just no other words for it. When I viewed the finished artwork for the first time, I was simply in awe. Even now, I am still at a loss for words, I know shocking isn't it.

The animal depicted in this banner is Daniel’s vision. Daniel and I exchanged emails discussing what we felt the animal might look like, but as many of you know – that’s anyone’s guess. Amazing, does not even begin to describe what I think when I look at this completed banner.

A visual representation in such vivid color makes the possibility seem so much more real.

Is this what Bigfoot looks like?

Sure makes me wonder, and I hope that’s what this artwork does for everyone who looks at it. I hope it makes you think, wonder and consider all the possibilities. I hope it inspires you to do what you can to help solve this mystery, and be a vocal part of the research.

Daniel reminded me with his generosity, his love for the mystery and his friendship, why I became involved in Bigfoot Research. It’s not about anything other than the animal, and that’s where my thoughts are going to remain.

Thank you Daniel, your kindness has truly touched my heart, and has filled a void this blog has felt for a few weeks – the readers appreciate it, and you have my undying gratitude.

Yes, there really are Angels. I am happy to share mine with all of you.

Enjoy Everyone !!!!!!!!!!

And, most importantly, Thank you Daniel !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Howdy Mel...

    Hope all is well with you.

    Daniel does amazing work, his conceptional depiction is certainly within the realm of genetic diversity in the "critters" I have seen.

    Very nice work...Daniel.

    live and let live...

    The banner is simply amazing. As a comic book geek I KNOW good artwork when I see it. Daniel is one very talented and kind hearted man.

    This banner is definitely a substantial improvement. I was dismayed to read what happened with PB and your original banner art but this new banner is certainly the silver lining to that "dark cloud" event. I would certainly be interested in seeing more along this line by the same artist.

    Melissa -

    The banner looks great. I passively follow the rounds of all things Bigfoot, and it seems you were treated pretty poorly.

    Keep up the good work.

    It's also good to see I'm not the only person in Dallas who thinks we should be looking for a 'squatch....

    I've always thought Wm Draginis' VBRO site has the best background and sound effects, but as for banners, this one takes the cake. That is some spectacular artwork! The perfect combination of (allegedly) realistic facial features, photographically rendered, and suggesting both something primitive and wild along with curious and nonthreatening.

    Very nice Melissa. He did a good job. Hey, you ever get that story finished yet on the GCBRO BBQ? Just thought I'd check on it but know you've been busy and were having the computer problems
