Art By Committee: Hulking Dude

Wednesday is a chance for us all to goof off a little with a game called "Art By Committee.” Your job is to illustrate an actual excerpt taken more or less at random from a big stack of science fiction manuscripts I have kicking around the studio from my work as a paperback cover artist.

This week’s quote seems straightforward enough: “Wildon, a big hulking dude, went into a crouch and threw out his arms, ready to catch the running Jeremy.” No two imaginations took it the same direction, but each solution makes complete sense.

Be sure to scroll down to the end of the post for next week’s challenge.

…and the one from the original Art By Committee book.

Here’s the challenge for next Wednesday:
Have fun! Please scale your JPG to around 700 pixels across. Title it with your name, send it to: jgurneyart(at), subject line ABC, and let me know in your email if you want me to link to your blog or website. Please have your entries in by next Tuesday at 10:00 AM Eastern Time USA.

awesome work this week!

it's really interesting to see how everyone's eye sees a topic.

personally, i saw the word dude, and i think cowboy. i science fictioned it up by placing him in an unfamiliar environment. i can definitely see a story of a space farmer in my head.

anyway kudos to everyone's work. i doubt i'll be able to participate next week since i will be out of town. maybe i'll jot down this weeks sentence in my sketchbook and get something done while traveling.
