Day 17 (April 27th) - Draw-a-thon

well it's day 17, tomorrow is offically the last day of the draw-a-thon, I tell you what I didn't think it would be this much of a challenge, but some days it's been really hard to find time to put pencil to paper, but then again that is the original reason that the idea for this came about...anyway, todays word is: BIRTHDAY.

Mine - Most Important birthday of my life

Day 16 (April 26th) - Draw-a-thon

Well it's day16, and I actually forgot to send the word to everyone today :S

the word of the day was Nugatory, not a word I myself can say I've ever come across before, so of course, Natalie supplied us with the dictionary definition as always which was: Futile, trifling, worthless. Inoperative, not valid.

Now being a complete and utter geek, I got Futile stuck in my head, and with futile comes Resistance is Futile, the slogan of the Borg (god, yeah, I am that much of a geek), so my first idea was the Borg... but then,mymind drifted and I ended up at the other thing that resistance is pretty much futile to... a red head ;), so I got a bit carried away with that idea, and created below,I had to stop myself doing to much to it, hence the late posting...

Day 10 (April 14th) - Draw-a-thon

It's Day 10... Word of the Day was Trudge.

Now I've wanted to do a Dr. Seuss one for a while, and today gave me the perfect oppotunity, ok, the prose aren't the best, but you get the idea....I might sit and colour it appropriatly and write the rhyme as it would appear in the book if I get the time...

Darren "Bear" Roberts

Mine - Nudging a Fudge
A Trudge?
While he's eating Fudge?
I hope he doesn't hold a Grudge...

Day 09 (April 13th) - Draw-a-thon

Day 9 of the Draw-a-thon is here, and for once I'm actually early. Today's word is: Wallah.

Mine- Wallah-Bee

The idea for my entry came to me the moment I looked up the definition of the word online, Wallah, from the basic grasp I can gather of the word, basically means worker, so hence we have a Worker-Bee... or shall we say Wallah-Bee

Day 07 (April 11th) - Draw-a-thon

Day 06 (April 8th) - Draw-a-thon

Ok, I know we're running late with the updates, but my internet is down at home, so resorting to a very convoluted way of posting these in work, anyway, below is the entry for day 6, the word was second sight... it's a bit hard to see, I know, but I spent the day thinking about second sight and the only thing I kept thinking of was Doctor Strange, and with Doctor Strange all I could think of was Doctor Strangelove... possibly something to do with James Homing entry... but my entry is meant to be Doctor Strange as Doctor Stangelove... I know... :S

Mine - Dr. Strange Love

Day 05 (April 7th) - Draw-a-thon

Hi guys, we're on to Day 05 already of the Draw-a-thon, as we've done the rest of the days we've had a random word picked out, today, Mrs. Merris let Natalie choose the word and she chose.... Sinecure
Now, I don't know about anyone else I had to look it up, and I've now decided that, that is what my job discription should be changed to, but enough on that matter, todays entries are below:
Darren "Bear" Roberts

Mine - Egregious Professor of Cruel and Unusual Geography

My original idea was to simply draw myself, as previously mentioned, but I just couldn't seem to pull it off, I think I may have a deep seeded issue to do with thinking of myself 3 stone heavier than I actually am... thought I'd post a link to it anywya, just for interests sake: HERE
