August 5, 2015 Addendum - Kylie Jaxxon is alive and well!
See details here:
You may have read earlier this week that great Second Life artist and designer Kylie Jaxxon, creator of the Trace Too, one of the most popular destinations in Second Life for many years, has recently passed away from leukemia. Kylie was very well liked in, and her passing has come as sad news to many.
Kylie's friends in Second Life are attempting to keep her gorgeous sim, Trace Too, open as a memorial to her through the end of August. They need help with raising funds. An all-day fundraiser was held on Thursday. In addition, an auction of artwork featuring The Trace as a subject will get underway on August 2. Art donations are being solicited. You can find our more about contributing art to the project here:

I created these oil pastels of the current rendition of Trace Too using Fotosketcher software which you can download here. I prefer an older version of the software, 2.75 for ease of use than the most current version which is available as a download option. You of course can do this with Adobe Photoshop, but Fotosketcher is very fast -- I did all these framed images from the original photographs in under five minutes.
You can see my original images before their conversion to oil pastels here:
