    Yeah, I thought it was time to give you all something that was a little more open to interpretation. I'm curious to see what everyone comes up with.

    My pleasure. I'm trying to mix up the oddball stuff with the people, so you all don't get bored.

    I can't resist ... am sketching some ideas right now. This is going to generate some very different entries! Got to do some technology ... some classic retro tech. For some reason the colour green keeps suggesting itself, maybe something to do with The Tommyknockers.

    Here's my interpretation of "Great Old Ones." So many things come to mind and I couldn't pick just one.


    If any of the bubbles need explanation, let me know. I don't want to ramble on if they're self-explanatory.

    I'm glad y'all like it. Thanks very much.

    I know it's not really a picture OF The Great Old Ones but images of people didn't spring up.

    It's totally open to interpretation. I knew this one would have a lot of material to work with.

    Did you draw it by heart?

    I had to look up a picture of a mushroom cloud to get the look right, as well as one for a monorail but other than that, yes. At first I started sketching a mish-mash collage of the images but I liked the idea of putting them into a more organized format...especially one that vaguely resembles the beams.

    Nice interpretation! I can't even draw a straight line without a ruler.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    Thanks, y'all, very much. I forgot to mention that I used miscellaneous items for the circles (no way could I have done that on my own).

    I wish more entries would be posted! I'm dying to see the interpretations of others.

    Great job Tiffany!

    I might see if I can come up with something for this one. I've got a few ideas.

    That's awesome Tiffany!

    I wonder if I shouldn't commision an artist for this one. I know exactly what I want to do for this one (interestingly enough it's very similar to what Tiffany has done) - I also know there's no way I'll be able to get it done...

    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)
