Illustration challenge

Here's the beginning of a drawing , to finish as you wish. Post your finished version on your blog and I will link to it in a special blogroll on the right during October. There's no deadline, you can finish it after October 1 as long as you let me know the link in the comments here or by email. One person has already posted, but I won't start the links till October 1, on which day I'll post my own finished version.

After October, AKA the start of the HolidaySeason, the right hand side will  be featuring many (many!) wonderful items of my own for purchase at redbubble or etsy, among them an Alice  Calendar. Or maybe a book? Anyone have any preferences - the cost is the same, the book would have more pictures than the calendar.

Hi ya........does it have to be a drawing? ; )

Jasmine said...

A fun idea. I'm afraid my drawing skills are non existent. Maybe I will find another way to join in.

ArtSparker said...

CM - I think a collage treatment would be fine also.

Megan said...

I might give it a try. I have some ideas already, but whether I can draw them is another kettle of fish.

I vote calendar.

P.S. My Alice t-shirt arrived in perfect shape! Except it's not really mine, I'm giving it to my sister for her birthday. I'll let you know how it is received!

tony said...

go for the book! A Grand Idea.
I will give the drawing a go.

My rapidograph fairly wriggles in my fingers with unbridled desire to complete that drawing.

Speaking of t-shirts; I'm wearing my most favorite Artspark Uh-Oh T at work today. In addition to being a joy to myself, I think it also spooks my fellow workers a bit, which is fine by me, 'cuz then they leave me alone and I actually get something done. For a change.
Highly recommended.

I'll have a go at this. And would most surely by the book( oh bother, the calendar, as well ) :)

mum said...

I've posted mine.

I like the idea of a calendar and I like the idea of a book (hope that's helpful) :-)

jude said...

Tom said...

What fun! Brings back glorious memories of coloring books that had little partial pictures to finish on your own. Here is my interpretation: http://365catladies.blogspot.com/2009/09/cat-lady-no-261collaboration.html

Tessa said...

I'm in such a hurry to get over to redbubble that I can barely type..I came over from Ribbon's place and yes please may I join in the illustration challenge...may we use colour? After I've ordered my Alice calendar and other treasures no doubt, I will come back to catch up on all that I've missed while away on house-hunting safari's recently....

Quilt Architect said...

I have an idea for a drawing on your illustration. So count me in.

Great idea. I had to play, even if my work was a little rushed. Grab an idea when you have it, right? Here's the link to my blog and my addition to the Challenge:
