White Collar Big Bang Art Post: Let Your Honesty Shine  
My second BB post is a true bang - art for elrhiarhodan's Let Your Honesty Shine. It's a White Collar/The Normal Heart crossover executed in the most brilliant way. While reading it I just wanted to keep hugging Neal all the time, and once I have finished reading, I think the journey Neal had to take has, in the end, finally brought him home.

This is all so beautiful. You did an amazing job with this.

ETA: I'm looking at this again, and it's amazing how much emotion you captured in your art here. That big collage of photos at the end, with Felix's last moments at the heart of it, makes me cry.

Awww, thank you so much. The story is so emotional, it seemed like the natural thing that these emotions leaked into the art. After all, I was creating these as I was reading the story :D
