Topic for 8/1 to 8/14

The imagination is amazing! Just look at all the architecture that characterizes our cities. I'm originally from the Chicagoland area, which is pretty impressive for a place that was named (by Native Americans) after stinky onions.  What about all the great books we read?  The classics, the bestselling novels, the philosophical, fantastic, romantic, scientifically fabricated (sorry, couldn’t think of an adjective for sci fi).  Endless galleries of artwork in endless mediums:  pencil, ink, paint and brush, clay, glass, plastic, wood, and metal, just to name a few.  How about movies?  You name it…action, drama, comedy.  How many mindblowing stunts or effects have we seen in the last decade alone?  Even the invention of movie-making itself was the fruit of someone’s imagination. Let’s not forget animation, where the limits and boundaries of live action can be broken.  The imagination can really let loose
here.  The only limit here is that someone must be able to draw it.

Which brings us to the next topic:


The imagination is limitless, and, if we allow it, can even transcend space, time, and all that we know! The object is to draw something that stretches the imagination, whatever your interpretation of that may be. Hopefully, this won't be a stressful topic, but we'll have lots of fun!

Too pretentious? Sorry, guys. I got a drawing in the works, though (finally, after a lot of thinking, and a few failed ideas). :P

No, I like it! I've been working on a mess of new things and I'm just trying to decide which one to flesh out for the topic.

I'm just a little slow...this year... :)
