Monday GUEST mailbag: Gurtash


Okay, so remember when I announced this guest mailbag by Gurtash, and wondered if I was going to have to find him his own text color? Yeah, well, as it turns out, the kid found a way to make that question moot. Here, let me kick it over to him and let him explain…



Hey, Gurtash!

Where did you get into art?

What’s your favourite piece you’ve drawn? Get well soon!

–Valinora Lightshorn, Stormwind City



Dear Gurtash,

My name is Sarlin. I’m not sure if you read Warchief Hellscream’s blog or mailbag much. I’m a new reader, myself. Not sure if you’ve heard of me at all. It’s nice to see that you’re finally up and about! Well…up, anyway. Healing, I think is the word.

What you did a while ago was really brave. Putting your life on the line for a friend (who I honestly don’t have time to whine about; according to Garrosh, I’m still on the limit with you, too) and coming away with a badge to show for it? That took guts. You’ve done more than the Horde proud, and I really hope you see it.

Incidentally, if the scar is still a bit strange to you, maybe you’ll take a little comfort in the knowledge that I have one in almost exactly the same place. You’ll get used to it over time, don’t worry. Plus, you have a pretty damn good tale to tell whenever you get asked about it! Trust me, they LOVE hearing those in the taverns. Not that I spend much time in them, of course.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Light be with you.

Rest easy and get ready for your training with Garrosh! Give the rest of the DPS my regard, also.

–Sarlinia-Grace Starstriker, Argent Crusade



Spirits be wit’ ya, Gurtash! I heard what happened ta everybody’s favorite artist and praise da Loa that ya recovered. 😀

Since you’re on mail duty while your body still be healing, do ya do any haiku or epic verses of your own besides the art?

((Yay! Korrina is in this! Also, the scarf wrapped around the shoulder horns really sells it. LOL))

OMG I only just now realized that the other trainee Gurtash shows his drawing to is the trainee that was killed by Saurok! *sniffle*
