    I'm new to the forums, but saw the contest and decided to come out of lurking to post something. Not sure if I'll be able to finish it on time, but here's hoping.

    Anyhow, the sketch:



    The large pile (inspired somewhat by Welwitschia Mirabilis, hence the title) is meant to consist of wings and hands (and glowy bits that will come later), representing tools, production, rules. The person flying out is breaking free of them, but has been shaped by them. In the distance (lower left) will be some oil pumps to fill the space and define the environment a little more, add a little extra meaning of also being tools and machinery, but such that no creative sparks come flying out of them. The idea is somewhat hard to put into words, but it's about the significance of various tools in creating something in contrast with the necessity to be able to break out of the frames they define and take a leap into the unknown for something truly new to be created. Not an easy process usually, hence the hands from the pile'o'wings reaching towards the figure, unwilling to let go, but being unable to stop it.

    Now please excuse me as I headbang over the prospects of painting all that.
