Birthday Art Challenge 2017 - Tiny-o-saurs
The Short Story: Draw tiny dinosaurs!
The Long Story: For my last 7 birthdays rather than send me cards I've asked people to draw me things. I’m no artist myself, but it’s nice every so often to just do a bit of doodling, and it’s been great over the last years seeing other people’s amazing and fun art.
So: If (see end note) you’re the sort of person who:
- might send me a card and you think this is a nice idea, or
- wouldn’t send me a card but this sounds like fun, or
- who doesn’t know me but likes to draw things…
… then draw a picture! It’s fun for you and enjoyable for me (and everyone else), and super cheap. I've set a theme each year, and this year the theme is:
Little Dinosaurs living in matchboxes and driving around in tiny cars! Tyrannosaurs chasing ants! Brachiosaurs just tall enough to eat the petals of a daisy!
(As before, drawings on previous themes - or indeed any cool theme - are also appreciated, so dancing robots, dinosaurs, squid fighting whales falling from orbit, old-aged space whale, ants doing the conga, and bonus points for a Dapper grey-haired miniature velociraptor attending a birthday party for centipedes while a depressed robot does a jig in front of her).
For inspiration here are links to the last 7 galleries:
2011: DANCE-BOT 5000
2012: Monsters in their Dotage
2013: Party Bugs!
2014: A Hitchhiking Birthday
2016: Things with Faces
END NOTE: The "if" up there is emphasised exactly because I'm usually pretty happy on my birthday anyway, so if you can read this you should not feel obliged in any way - just if you feel like it and think you'd enjoy drawing something dinosaur-related, I'd be delighted to see the results! Don't feel that artistic skill is necessary - I'm terrible at drawing myself, and also don't feel you need to know me: I've had some excellent pictures from people I've never met.
