I feel at home when the unknown surrounds me


guys,look if I dont blow my own little silver trumpet, then who, tell me who will (huh ?)
happy to report a result
This is a drawing I made for a submission call to carpaccio magazine based in Spain.The line is from a Bjork song (wanderlust) and the video is wonderful .
The theme is inspired by this line from miss Bjorks song,hence the issue will be various artists responses to same.
I see our esteemed collective member miss D. Nestors beautiful work was chosen for last months call,she is obvs much more secure than me and didnt need to tell the world :)
Anyways guys , the call for submissions is every month and it is a most imaginative publication , blog etc.
So take a look and see if it interests you .
Also , I want to propose a tinderbox drawing exhibition to be made online , ie.on our blog SOON SOON .
Simple , something inspiring , hopeful and that would bring us all together collectively.
We could put it up on a seperate flickr page or something ?
Tinderbox Top Twenty or the tinderbox heart strings collective or we are collectively moved
I know , everyone send in a line of a song that really moves them(+ a link so others can see\hear it on youtube etc)
then we can all respond to one that appeals most to us...what you think??
I hope that you are all having a good summer.(loving the new header claire of mr d. martins beautifully cut letters )
