Art By Committee: Eye Out

The 15th of the month is the day for our group sketch game called "Art by Committee." I share an actual excerpt from a science fiction manuscript and each week you visualize it.

This month's quote was “I should stay here and keep an eye out.” This is one of those lines you can take literally or figuratively, and the results are surprising and impressive.

And the one from the original sketchbook.

Next week's quote is:


Have fun! For next time, please scale your JPG to 300 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, website, or larger image file (just one link, please) and please give me the URL, even if you gave it to me before. Please have your entries in by the 12th of March. I'll post the results March 15.

Nice work guys! I always thought the English expression " keep your eyes peeled" was slightly worse though.

Hi James You might be interested in this. I know you are speaking in Rockville tomorrow. If you are staying in Washington you might get a kick out of the Pompeii show at the National gallery of art. They have a huge Lawrence ALma Tadema painting I think it is called the Marble Shop along with the work of another English painter who has a painting of a Roman solider holding his post in the face of the eruption of Vesuvius. Hope I can make the lecture.

Wow, thanks, Tom--I didn't know about the Pompeii show. Might see it on Tuesday.
