a brief introduction and a message for a child you may know
- Hi folks,
I've was waiting for the Mythcon to introduce myself to this group,
but unfortunately I was felled by a wicked sore throat on Friday
evening and it kept me away the rest of the conference. I was sorely
disappointed, as you can imagine, and now I'm even more so, reading
I am better at last and I'm working on a project that some of you
may be able to help me with.
I'm looking for kids who love to draw fantasy scenes and figures (no,
not adults - only kids, 16 or so and under) to draw a few specific
images for possible inclusion in a map I'm making of Mythaca <http://
journeytomythaca.com>. The map will be printed on the inside covers
of the next edition and the artists acknowledged. The book began as a
collaborative with the 6th/7th/ and 8th graders in my class a few
years ago. The map project continues that work.
This week is the real push to get it done, because next week almost
all our kids and grandchildren will be here.
I have plenty of children's work, but too many of the same images, so
now I'm only looking for specific drawings. I thought, of all groups,
the members of this one would surely have kids or know kids who like
fantasy and are looking for drawing projects.
I've listed the images below. The last day for me to receive pictures
is August 14.
I've begun and will continue to posting current drafts of the map and
commentary about the process on my blog at <http://
