The Giant Squid
Nibblefest you are a cruel beast, which fits nicely with this month’s Sea Monster theme! As much as I dreaded this one, there should be a law against having so much FUN. I ended up doing two ACEO Original Acrylic Paintings for this round…
When I think Sea Monster, my first thought always goes to “The Giant Squid”. It is such an iconic image, the old wooden sailing ship being wrapped in the clutches of the multi armed creature from the deep. The wind howls. The waves crash. The rocks draw near. You know this one is going to end badly. That dang ship doesn’t stand a chance…
The Creature from Coconut Cove
That painting finished, another idea emerges. I find myself chuckling at the thought of doing a take on the old Hollywood horror classic, “The Creature from the Black Lagoon”. “The Creature from Coconut Cove” unfolds with a decidedly Gulat twist. The creature in this case is the one with the glass of wine in her hand, and the monster is the green guy behind her having second thoughts!
Nibblefest is a themed monthly art contest on eBay. The premise of Nibblefest is, Artists list at Auction one to three pieces of their Art for seven, five, or three days (starts on the 20th, ends on the 27th). All of the Auctions start with an opening bid of just $0.99. Whomever has the greatest number of people bid on their listing wins. You don’t count bids. You count bidders. So, what this really means is, I need YOUR NIBBLE to WIN! 🙂
Update: Thanks to all your generous nibbles, I finished in Second Place!
