Today I am protesting. No, scratch that. Today I am celebrating!
I’m celebrating the fact that I have absolutely no artistic talent, whatsoever. But why would I celebrate such a thing? Let me back up a moment.
The best part? Snarky, funny humor AND funny cartoon drawings.
If only, I thought, I had some artistic talent. So I started a blog, sans creative, witty cartoons, relying solely on my wordsmithing ability.
Cartoons would help.
So I decided to give this paint.net a whirl, since that’s what Allie Brosh uses. Maybe THAT was the key to unlocking my inner artist.
I decided to draw a horse.
Not so good, huh?
I decided to try again. This time, I did a self-portrait.
So maybe I can get some mileage out of this. What if every Friday on my blog was “Flat Flannery Friday?” I could challenge you to print the picture, glue it to some cardboard for durability, and take a photo of Flat Flannery in different places. Send it to me with a description, and every week I’ll pick the best one to post for the day, with a link to the bloggy site.
My own little take on Flat Stanley. See what I did there?
It’s not like you need to stow away on the space shuttle, or book a flight to Egypt. The picture could be anywhere, doing anything, as long as it’s creative. Flannery could be cleaning your toilet for all I care.
Help make my dream a reality; my dream, that even the artistically challenged can celebrate their “art.”
Join me, won’t you, in celebrating
Flat Flannery Fridays.
Edit: For those of you without a blog to promote (gasp, shriek), I will post your photo and description, and a link to the charity of your choice.
