Illustrators wanted!

We here at Muddled Ramblings and Half-Baked ideas are going to turn up the audience participation a notch. Why? Because we care. Yep, for any of you with an artistic bent, now’s your chance to emerge from the comments and get your stuff on the front page.

Elephants of Doom is turning out to be a pretty big story (2000 words in and no ivory-billed woodpecker yet), but I have written a couple of bits that might be fun to draw. If you’re interested, drop me a line in the comments and I’ll send you the part of EoD that I have written.

I thought of turning this into a contest, but hey, if more than one person supplies a picture, I’ll just include them all — with, of course, full credit to the artist and a link to your page if you would like. My goal is to release Elephants of Doom to celebrate visitor 50,021, which will happen a few days from now. Sorry about the short notice. If you send an illustration later, I can still add it, and make sure that everyone sees it.

In fact, now that I think about it, feel free to illustrate any of the stories I scratch out here. Some of them are certainly more illustration-worthy than others, but any of them would be improved by a nice picture. (It’s hard to imagine why you would, but if you choose to illustrate Quest for the Important Thing to Defeat the Evil Guy, Episode 1, please be careful.)

  1. I modified this post to push out the deadline a bit. I didn’t make any progress on EoD last night and I’m using Bob’s suggestion for using the story to commemorate Mr50K as an excuse for pushing it back.

  2. They do??? you seriously want to see what MY demented mind could bring to the dance??? Damn what do they put in the water over there???

  3. To viลก! (In my water, iron seems to be the primary ingredient.) So do you want the first bit of the story? My goal last night was to finish it, but I only got one more inside joke covered before I was sucked into the life of the LCNH. It was an interesting evening, no doubt about that (teaching the locals how to dance to the Clash), but not a bloggable one…

    Soup Boy may be on board for doodling as well. We’ll have to wait and see.

  4. What the hell. Since you know how well I do with drawing on deadlines, why don’t you send me some fragments of elephants — maybe they will jump-start other things.

  5. Being unconcious I would have trouble drawing I think :)

    No promises on time scale. Too much life happening. Unlike you I know when someone is hitting on me. First clue, touching and flirting. Second clue, buying things.
    Third clue (Jerry’s mom cover your eyes please) …The tongue down your throat???
