Going Away


Sorry blogger pals, I'll be gone for a few days getting some well-deserved R&R at Montauk Point. I'll be back home by Monday night. I've got a few big things in store when I get back.

'Til then, I've got a little project you all can join in on if you want. Back on my very first post, I posted a few drawings of "Rebops" I made with the help of a few friends. All of you are probably wondering: "What the H-E- Double hockey sticks is a Rebop?", right?

Here's how I described it on "post #1";

"A rebop is a creature made up of various animal parts. I ask people to pick various parts & I draw them lickety-split & see their reactions. I make rebops to hone my creative drawing skill. It's great training for me, plus I give them to people if they would like the creatures they helped create. Anyone can participate.

Here's how to do it: Each person gives me 8-10 animal parts. These parts can me heads, necks, torsos, arms, legs, feet, tails, & various other appendages (wings, horns, spikes, etc.) Everything is acceptable except the eyes, because I make them all the same (except if you want bug-like eyes). I see the list, draw the picture on paper, scan it into the computer & post it on this thread. I'll give it a Seussian-like name as an added bonus.

There's only one rule: no disgusting/suggestive parts."



Here's one I did over for a friend a few weeks back.

Here's a Joryorfulox (Horse mane, Dragon claws, Bird wings, Lion tail, Snake head, Sheep body, Piranha teeth & Ram horns).
If any of you wish to take part, just post your request(s) on the "Comments" page & I'll work on them & post them up here when I get back from my trip.
'Til then, have a nice weekend & I'll see you upon my return (I hope).
