    Just ordered my sketchbook today. I'm sooooo nervous. Interesting themes everyone. Hope I'm able to do them justice.

    I feel the same way, but you don't have to worry I'm sure. After i got this approved and was adding themes, that is when it really hit what i was doing and it is scary!!

    Okay everybody...just relax! I have a great feeling about this group...all wonderful artists, and I know you can make up some ultra-cool, funky, serious, funny, or seriously funny ancestors...some hints might be to make your "altered ancestor" belong to you in some way...maybe have given you a unique talent or have influenced your likes, dislikes, abilities in some way [like my mermaid thing with the swimming/love of water]...just let yourself go crazy and have fun...that's what this group/site is all about after all! By the way, they can be human/animal or magical...I just heard on Animal Planet [I watch this instead of the news...much better for my blood pressure] that we share 98% of our DNA with orangutangs [sp?]...spooky, huh?

    Ok, I've been picking away at this for the past couple of weeks, and I'm pretty happy with it. This is the front two pages (including the swap order) and the first three pages (page one is some of the advocates of "great books" readings, pages two and three are a take on the opening cantos of Dante's Inferno). I hope I have the order of the swap right (shoulda checked on that before I committed pen to paper).

    This is journal swap is going to be a lot of fun, I can tell already.

    Ditto!! What a teriffic start!! I still don't have anything yet....I do have an idea for my cover...
    If there are any Clive Cussler fans among us, I went to a book signing of his new book with his son, Cresent Dawn. What a really nice guy, both of them. I just hadn't realized how old he actually was.

Between babysitting, cleaning, babysitting, and cleaning I will hopefully have time to work on some sketches for the books.....By for now....Go Sooners.....

    Sorry for being really late. I was in the middle of a remodeling project.
    Title is SKI: Spy Killers Inc.
    I downloaded a picture, it pretty much describes and shows what is going on. The story is that SKI is in the spy killing business. They are called "Interceptors".
    Notice the aliens are not green. Feel free to draw or collage. Try to keep the characters the same clothing, color, etc...but in your own style...I don't have the resources that some do to hire a hit squad...so if you get side tracked and do your own thing, chances are really good that you will not have an assassin come to your house.
    I am excited as this is my first moley.
    If you want to do it on the computer and print it out and paste it in go ahead.

    Two main spy killers...I will post their names later.
    Thanks look forward to your works.

    Thanks Joe for the compliment. I got my book in Saturday.Yours looks great. I like the looks of your order chart.
    I am actually excited about all the themes.
    It's nice to be able to draw a little bigger, that is why I like a four card set and do some of them.
