PICNIC Theme. SIGN UP Now!

This piece is one of many by the talented, whimsical, and inspiring young Chinese artist, Oamul Lu.
Check out his website and tumblr archive too. If you dig, you'll find some surprisingly sweet animations along the way. :)


Hmmm... so, what should we dive into next? As it happens, I have some family commitments stretching out over the next few weeks. With that said, our next venture then won't actually be due until August 4th. Sorry about that, but just think of all the possibilities you could muster in the interim for some kind of PICNIC! Chew on this for a while and I'll see you back here shortly. :)

BTW, if you get your piece done earlier, you can always link back to this post at any time. (The URL remains the same even after updating the title and adding the sign up.)

P.S. I seem to recall an illustration Wanda did years ago of some ants scurrying off with picnic table scraps. My apologies to those of you around back then if indeed this theme was suggested before. Obviously, it escapes me now. Never mind, one will hardly suffer passing the Grey Poupon around once more. :)

  1. A picnic in the woods with lights and a complete table and lights.... I want to go. This is a theme that can go in all directions... I do remember those pesky ant's from years ago. Don't have a clue where I put it.

    Well since we have a little more time....I'll put my thinking cap on...

    I sure had a blast with "Little Critters".
