And the Winners are...

That's right: "Winners". Plural.

First, though, I want to thank everyone who participated. Some of the ideas you put forth were really fun. You all are a pretty creative bunch!
Based on the over all theme of my Sketchbook, the constraints of the page sizes, and what I know of my own drawing skills, I have chosen:

Either an super eel monorail, or an octopus hot air balloon ('cause how on earth can I resist that?)

I could picture a sad little girl holding a dirigible tied to a string. she is sad because she wanted a shiny red balloon and not a drab, gray dirigible. (Because I think that is just funny, in a weird sort of way, and it reminds me of "The Red Balloon" - which I loved, yet found creepy, as a kid.)

So, you two, send me your mailing addresses, and once I get the images done, I will send you both signed, numbered copies! Yea!


  1. Congrats to the winners! Awesome ideas.

  2. excellent ideas both! can't wait to see them here :)

  3. Congrats to them, their ideas rock and would work well with your style :-)

  4. And another great new banner??!! I missed that earlier..Its fab!

  5. Yay! I will see Ellie at lunch today. She'll be so excited!

  6. Browsed your sketchbook on art house coop (I am also a participant). No wonder you hit a wall, from the work you have done so far you must be exhausted. It is obvious how much thought and effort you have put into the project and your work shows it. I greatly admire how your imagination has so perfectly dealt with the sketchbook theme. The bed teathered to the hot air ballon was so good it's no wonder you are spent. Press on, but don't push it, the ideas will come if you just float with the current, above or below.

  7. oh these are wonderful ideas!!! can't wait to see what you come up with!!!!

  8. Very cool. Otin, you can never again say that you never win anything.

  9. Lucky bastards.

    I mean, congratulations!

  10. I love the winning idea! Except, I need to go look up what a dirigible is...

  11. Thank you so much! I can't wait to see it.


Grab a cup of coffee and sit down.
Stay a while.
Share a thought or two...
