Drumroll please...

No? Ok. That's fine. I'll just toot my own horn instead.


Seriously though, I have finished (more or less) the two winning ideas from my giveaway last week.
First up, Otin's idea: 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.

I love her sad little face...although, truth be told, she has that look like she might pitch a royal temper tantrum any second now!

I also had picked an idea presented by Ellie: Either an super eel monorail, or an octopus hot air balloon.
I may, at some time, visit the super eel monorail idea, but I loved the octopus hot air balloon idea.
And here he is:

You may ask, "why Japanese lanterns?" To which I will reply, "why not?" I dunno, I just thought they'd look pretty. I have a weird imagination, I will admit.

So anyway, Otin and Ellie, I will have prints off to you as soon as I am able to get down in the dungeon basement and print them out for you! Yea!


  1. they are both superb! and i have to say, each time i pop in here, i really do want coffee :)

  2. I'd trade my balloon for the dirigible any day!

  3. I love these. And yes, the little girl looks a bit wicked. :)

    BTW, I am still at zero on my sketchbook. I think I'll consider my fee a donation to the cause. ;(

  4. The look on that girl's face is Bad. Ass.

  5. I brought my horn, and I'm tooting it for ya! Zowie, these are faaaaaaantastic! Oooh, I love sad/mad little girl. She's gorgeous, and her stance is just perfect! I'm with Captain. I'd rather have the dirigible, too.

    And weeeeeee to the adorable octopus! The view must be awesome from there. Open your eyes! :D
