Oh, what a fantastic idea! I wish I were an arty type, but depressingly, a narcoleptic chimpanzee could wield a crayon more skillfully than I. The girl can cook, she she sure as hell can't draw.

So sad for arty types in Canuckistan, Dandy! I think you should write HBO a rude letter with lots of filthy words in it, just to let them know how you feel about their stupid-ass rules.

Any folkers here going to enter? Say yes!

I'm kind of reli-i-i-eved I can't enter as I cannot do much more than the above mentioned narcoleptic chimpanzee with a crayon either.

But go you US folkers!!!

I'm not arty in the traditional way... I can colour just great so crayons and markers are my friends, but I can't draw... Straight lines and circles and such elude me... But I can be good with scissors... Maybe a mosaic or something... :hrm:

Lol Indy! I should think being possessed of a US address would count...

It is, in fact, Pippo as Albi. That was his halloween costume for a couple of years running. My boyfriend was the one who found the costume and suggested it. Just one of the many reasons I love him. ;)

That's a fantastic idea! Unfortunately, I'm about as artistic as a dyslexic panda bear. :?

edit: "narcoleptic champanzee" is better. Hats off to you, Turnip. :)

I missed this until now, for some reason. How exciting! SheWolf, here is your chance to put your Photoshop skills to good use! (Not that you haven't already)

Now I have a new puzzle to mull over while I do the dishes...

I am really enjoying looking at the submissions so far. They range from the sublime to the ridiculous.

The "no third party" rule makes it harder to create the images.
