ABC: Big Ugly

The 15th of the month is the day for a group sketch game called "Art by Committee." The way it works is I share an excerpt from a science fiction story and you come up with a picture to go with it.

This month the quote was about running into a big ugly something-or-other:

I love the range of solutions people came up with. There are some pretty strange things out there to run into! Check out more about the artists at their linked blogs and websites.

Here's the solution from the coffee shop gang that I was hanging with a while ago.

Thanks to everyone who participated.

Now here’s the quote for next month: "He stood and held his arms out before him, pulling the chains taut. The muscles in his shoulders and his chest bunched, standing out in sharp relief, and a moment later, the chains snapped cleanly."

Have fun! Please scale your JPG to 400 pixels across and compress it as much as possible. Title it with your name, send it to: jgurneyart(at), subject line ABC. Please let me know in your email the full URL of the link to a larger image or your blog or website so people can see your image in all its glory and learn more about your other work. Please have your entries in by the 12th of September. I'll post the results September 15.

Yay! A new challenge! This is my favorite creative activity.

I love seeing what everyone else comes up with. It's amazing the things you don't even think of that someone else does, like I never would have thought of utilizing the Escher stairs. Very clever, everybody!

Andrew --
A few more years of this, and you'll be able to publish the first mighty Andar graphic novel.
