Jerry Nelson: Rainbow in the Sky by Delta-Shout Jerry Nelson: Rainbow in the Sky by Delta-Shout
"When I was a little Fraggle, I had a pet Thimblebug. I don't know if he got lost, ran away or even died. All I know is one day he was gone."

"Did that make you feel as bad as I do?"

"Well, yeah, sure. But you know what? That little Thimblebug had built a nest for himself in the corner of my room and, well, I still have that nest."

"A-and that helps?"

"Well, sure. It's like a part of him is still alive."

"I get it. It's like if somebody drew pictures, like Mokey, or somebody built a diving board like Red; we'd have those things to remember them by."

"Yeah, but it doesn't even have to be a thing they left behind, it could just be a happy moment that you keep alive in your memory."

- Gone But Not Forgotten

Thank you for the happy moments Jerry.

Gratz getting this drawing featured on The Muppet Mindset website. :clap:

Doesn't appear mine will get featured there, unless there is another place they look for pictures besides Muppet Central Forums & DeviantArt and it got missed.

Oh, wow, thanks.
I honestly had no idea I was on there; I was at work today and have only just logged on:wow:
Thank you for the kind words.

:hmm: Could there possibly be a third part? Maybe yours will be featured then.
*crosses fingers*
here's hoping

Thanks & Your Welcome.
Hope so too, but I think they ended it after Part 2 was posted by the way they ended it.

I am curious as to how your drawing got noticed, did you post anywhere else that they might have been searching for posted tribute artwork? I know I posted mine here on DevArt, on Muppet Central Forums, and my personal Facebook account on Saturday evening while all the tribute artwork was still flowing in. Maybe it got lost in the tons of posts over on Muppet Central Forums Jerry Nelson tribute forum. I dread to even think maybe the person doing article didn't like it, I'm just hoping they never saw it. I'm just glad a lot of other people have seen it and like it from the response I have gotten and still receiving.

Not that I know of... I posted it here, and I saw someone had put it on the Remembering Jerry Nelson thread. But aside from that, there wasn't anywhere else.

Maybe they just picked them out at random?

It's cool, I think what got posted was what the author posting article liked and I'm not gonna lose any sleep over it. I guess I'm just dumbfounded my tribute art to Jerry wasn't liked, while everyone else who posted some tribute art on those forums on Saturday, got selected, I'm the only one that didn't. But, everyone has a right to like or dislike things, it's what makes us human & unique. Sort of like music, some people may like certain artists, while others totally dislike same artists, it's all personal preference.

I'll just keep on drawing, it's fun and a good stress reliever and lots of other people liked my tribute, that's what really counts.

Thanks for sharing your tribute to Jerry.

I also made a tribute to Jerry, if you want to check it out.
