I agree, it's one of my favorite SF stories, and definitely one of the best first-contact scenarios I've come across. And not to mention the Moties themselves are just awesome. (But I feel like Larry Niven tends to do a pretty good job with his aliens in general haha.) :)

Picked up the book not that long ago, its was a pleasant surprise to find something this well done with art for the series as unfortunately scarce as it is.

Should you ever decide to do commissions, I'd love to ask you for depictions of Watchmakers, Warriors, Doctors, Porters, Farmers, Runners, and Meats. How much would you charge per sketch?

Actually I do not do commissions now - too busy at work and too tired to paint at home :(
But if I'd ever return to Moties, I'll let you know

I knew that you didn't, which is totally understandable. But in any eventuality, I appreciate you keeping me in mind.

This is very good. It would be good to add a human for perspective.
