And here I thought we'd dispelled the rumours based on hints from Leigh that the theme would be something about monkeys...?

Anyhow, good seeing your work again, Jonny! Both nice pics, but I like the monkey one, especially the fact that his wife and kid is there too - great idea!

Have fun...!

So duddlebug, you're already making everyone else look slow with your lightning-sketching speed?

So far, the concepts look very promising (monkey astronauts just plain rule ). Looking forward to more of your creative crazyness.

Great Minds?

Jonny,
I can't believe it, I had the exact same idea of a chimp in space as you for my entry. Just to make sure it didn't look like I copied your idea, I have chacked the time of the posts and I definately got in there first. Trouble is I don't think I will be able to compete with you in executing the idea. I am still thinking of different interpretations but if you don't go with this idea I might still use it. I know you'll produce a great image whatever you decide to do. I loved your spectacular image by the way.
Mark

'lo Jonny. Glad I caught you in the beginning, will try and follow your progress this time around.
I heard about the "snow storm" that hit northern England, maybe that is a fit topic

Good luck!

JoNnY! I love the monkey in space! I remember the original doodle very well. You could have a co-pilot who's a small dog; like Laika...

Yeah! Dog as co-pilot would be hilarious

Jonny,
Thanks for the reply, yeah I suppose you are right, there are bound to be similar themes. I just didn't want to get disqualified for plagerism (if that is how you spell it!) Anyway while reading up on t'internet about animals being shot into space I discovered that Americans sent chimps into space and the first Russian animal in space was a dog so there is plenty of room for different interpretations. Good luck with your entry and thanks for putting my mind at rest.

Wow! So many replies for one day!?

GrM: Cheers. Dunno what i'll be going with yet... might be this fella, might be the cimp or might be something completely different??

Beelow: Don't worry, i'll make sure posh finishes this one!

Crowley, Mythmaker abd jmBoekestein: Thanks guys!

FlyinP: Couldn't resist...

W!L, Digital Bobert: Thanks a lot!

Rudeone: Hmmm... i think i'm in danger of being typecast, but i can't resist a monkey.

paperclip: hmmm.... i think i'll go for a monotne background and a brightly lit monkey. A bit like my spectacular piece. Um..?

Ramitxon: One small step for a chimp...?

MichaelMotion: i'm already storming on the inside! I'm thinking more soviet propoganda at the moment. Hmmmm.

Andy H: i've been thinking a lot about my chimp on an asteroid that i did as a spectacular rough. I really want to develop it and this subject seems to be the perfect opportunity!

walrus: Cheers Mike! I'm glad you like it. The wife and kid make it a little autobiographical for the last twelve months of first time fatherhood. Well, that's the idea.

ArtisticVisions: Haha... these are reeeeal quickies. Just to get me going. I should have more time soon. Then i can get properly started!

Slav, Tris3d, NinjaASSN: Cheers!

Marco J: Blimey... how weird's that? I hope you won't mind if i explore this further. It's been a character that i've been thinking about since spectacular so i may well run with this... we can both go with similar ideas i think. The brief is so specific in 'the beginning' of a journey that i think there'll be lots of similar concepts floating around. Good luck with yours!

Mikael P.: Hi Mikael!! Great to hear from you! And we always get snow in Buxton! Hope you enjoy the journey...

Poshspice (and MM!): Hey Aly... The Laika idea is just brilliant. Just wait for the next rough...

Too much else to do tonight so i won't be submitting much else until Thursday or so. Thanks y'all for being so interested so early!

And if i've missed anyone, or madfe any big booboo's then i apologise but i typed this between cooking and eating pancakes (with fresh lemon, fruit sugar, bananas and tia maria. yumyum!)

Haha... yeh, i found out the same thing. It was NASA that liked sending the chimps up into the vortex! I just like those USSR space suits. Maybe we can show the two sides of the space race between us?
