One of the many things I learned from my father is this: If you want to get something done you start by promising that you’ll do it. Then you stagger out into the garage, drink some more and pass out, sitting in front of the wood burning stove. Mission accomplished.
Having grown up in that kind of inspirational environment it’s not hard to see why I started planning my Octoberween-Palooza-Ganza in December. As I am unaccustomed to actually accomplishing goals I figure the earlier I start, the better. If I accomplish only one thing this year, it’s going to be my OPG.
So far, I’ve just let my mind wander on the subject, waiting to see what occurs to me. One of the thoughts that keeps floating around in my brain is the idea of original art giveaways. Specifically, something like this:
Actual size 5.5″ x 7.5″ on 90lb. watercolor paper and more detailed than what the scan shows.
Behold the power of my fine-tip Japanese markers! I also used a red Sharpie and some red watercolor paint for that added zing. To get to the point, would you guys actually want something like this?
I’m thinking I might’ve hit upon something kinda neat but it never hurts to get some feedback. Anyway, gimme a shout when you have a minute. Thanks.
