    Is her work available for sale, either as originals or prints? I love the illustrations displayed here, especially the top one.

    Is the “Like” button broken? I haven’t been able to like this post either. The “loading” message just hangs in the air forever….

      She does have selections for sale on her own website. If she doesn’t have the one you’d like up it’s worth emailing her ->

      And aaaah maybe the recent WordPress update broke something. What device / browser are you using?

      • Hangaku Gozen says:

        I originally viewed this post on my Mac Air, using Chrome. (Not sure which update.) Later I read your reply on my iPhone using Safari, but same issue: no Like button, loading message rolling endlessly. I also wasn’t able to reply to you on the phone because WordPress kept asking me to sign in, which I was already. I’m still having issues with WordPress and my phone, so I’m wondering if the iPhone/Apple is blocking cookies now.

        This morning (US Pacific DST) I see the Likes and the button. So I guess it’s been fixed?

        Yeah, for a long time the like button wasn’t working (back in New Mexico where I had terrible internet/no internet) and then it worked when I got to Kansas (with better internet) and it just this past week stopped working. Maybe it’s just the internet signal…?
