Hi, everyone!
Wow, the coolest thing about being a “regular” is now my thread fills up with comments before I’ve even posted a single word of picture!

Well, I’ve been thinking about the theme for weeks now ever singe Leigh’s first clue. I have some ideas, but I hadn’t factorred in the extra rules (or suggestions) about doing small creatures, so now I’m rethinking. Hope to have something to show soon, but I need to sit with it a while longer… Best of luck to all of you too!



I wonder just how strictly the ‘small creature’ rule is going to be enforced? My picture doesn’t have small creatures (although there will be small elements in it)…will this be bad?


I swear I thought you said, “small elephants,” paperclip and I was going to say that it perfectly suits the contest. I think the small-creature-large-epic-background is just a guide to get you to think about an epic journey. IMHO, the birth of a child is an epic journey. I don’t think you or walrus will have any problems with what ever you come up with.


Good luck! Looking forward to some more excellent work!
