ABC: Swollen Shut

Wednesday is the day for our group sketch game called "Art By Committee." I present an actual excerpt from a science fiction manuscript and you illustrate it.

This week’s quote: “his left eye was swollen shut” was open-ended enough to bring out everything from playful and whimsical to various shades of macabre. I’m always amazed how many different ways there are to visualize something. I hope you’ll click on the names beneath each picture to find out more about the artists who created them.


And the one from the original sketchbook.

Here’s next week’s quote: “Their voices were high-pitched, piercing…but human.”

Have fun! Please scale your JPG to 700 pixels across and please compress it as much as possible. Title it with your name, send it to: jgurneyart(at)yahoo.com, subject line ABC, and let me know in your email the full URL of the link to your blog or website if you have one. Please have your entries in by next Tuesday at 10:00 AM Eastern Time USA.
