LOL - hey Mike no worries. I just posted the thread last night, so seeing as how busy you are it's amazing you got to it so soon.
I'm sorry to hear that you are still fighting that tendonitus. That totally sucks.
Anyway, if you are game, whenever you are ready. I understand about the work situation, and almost didn't post this because of mine.
Anywhey, keep me posted.

You know, I don't have a clue.I was kinda hopin' you'd have an idea
Maybe some kind-hearted passerby would take pity on us and suggest a topic?

Well, I'll toss a few your way then.
-Small creature that hordes objects of a certain nature.
-Loyal guard of an long abandoned castle.
Look forward to seeing whatever you guys come up with(even if you don't use these).

"a small flying river stork that hords loyal guards at the hidden entrance of a castle?"
Sorry. J/K. I'm sick and feeling sort of punchy at the moment. Any of these sound good to me. Let me sleep on it, and if I don't come up with something I guess I'll chose one tomorrow unless something really strkes you or an inocent bystander.
PS. and yes, thank you Cyrus for your ideas!

J/k guys- see what you can do w/ out me weighing you two down

Hell, I'd say you did more than hold up! I'm game if Mike's game to have you on board. Nothing like doing it right!
Okay, here's what i'm thinking: I'm thinking sort something sort of twisted - not gorey, per se, just twisted. Kind of like a fairy tale on acid - something that's gone wrong in a psychotic sort of way. Something that's odd, twisted, off, utilizes symbology, feels like the fairy tale has just met the freak show... Something like...
Any of Imp Head's Stuff, Brom's Work, some Jon Foster's stuff or almost any of Puddinhead's stuff.
> Character driven. Can be a portrait or a scene, artist's choice.
> Must use symbology that the artist can explain - symbology must be obvious, but meaning can be obscure - ref. Imp Head's work.
> Medium: Open
> Deadline: ?
> Winner is People's Choice
> No prize, unless someone wants to front one
Let me know whatcha think.

Are you cool with DG joining in the fun if he's up to it?
November 8th, 2004 #9
Okay, sounds good. I'd like to hear from DG to make it official wether he's in or not.
Also, had an idea to up the stakes a little:
Losers ship a print, their cost, of their piece to the winner. Prints should be done on at least water colour paper, so they are suitable for framing.
If this is all cool (DG joining, and the winning stakes) I'll recap the challenge - do we need to recap it in another thread, or will this one work?

re: the print before I'm outta here for a couple hours - you guys are complicating it! Don't you have a desktop printer? watercolour paper works fine with an inkjet - I've got an HP and I do it all the time. Had an Epson previously. That's all I was thinking, nothing fancy. Watercolour paper is (farily) cheap and looks good with the prints.
Anyway, it was just a thought.
The only thing left is a deadline...? And I've no clue when that should be.

Hey Mike, DG,
Okay, Dec 1st sounds good to me. Whatever on the print, it was just a thought to up the stakes some.
We can define the topic more, if you like. If something is looking a bit vague to you, let me know what you would like clarified, or feel free to add your own notes to the criteria.
I"m cool with sketches going here. It'll be fun to see some wips.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you two come up with!
back to work...
