My Dear Super-awesome Fellow Bloggers,
Thanks so much for participating in the first Creativity Carnival – The Pocket Watch. I don’t know if it was a smashing hit by general standards, but by mine, it definitely was 🙂 I loved all your creative gems – they were super-awesome.
Here’s this week’s cue-art 🙂 Saying anything more would be wrong, so I’ll refrain from it. Instead, I’ll talk about last week’s cue-art, The Pocket-Watch, but after I’ve introduced this week’s cue-art, The Bell.
The Rules are super-simple 🙂
- Your cue is the artwork above.
- You have a week to get creative and make a post that connects with the cue.
- You are welcome to do anything creative with the cue. Here is a list of possibilities:
- Write a Story (tiny/short/long…whichever works for you. A tip: Shorter Stories, more reads.)
- Share an Anecdote
- Write a Poem
- Draw a doodle
- Paint a picture
- Some other creative craft that I can’t think of – but it must explore and even extend the portrayal in the artwork.
- Include the cue-art in your post.
- Link back to this Creativity Carnival Post and then click on it so that a pingback is registered and other bloggers (including this caricaturist) can visit your post, like it, love it, and comment upon it 🙂
For more details (mostly superfluous) please visit the Creativity Carnival page here.
The other suggestion of tagging our posts “creativity carnival” did well with the previous carnival 🙂 If we tagged our posts “creativity carnival” we could follow this tag in our Reader too. I’ve already tagged this post and will be tagging all my weekly carnival posts with “creativity carnival” tag. So if you start following the tag, you’ll find the newest carnivals in your Reader.
I will look forward to visiting your blogs 🙂
How the Pocket Watch happened?
I had drawn that pocket-watch because the concept of time intrigues me. I often wonder who must’ve first thought of it and how difficult it may have been for humans to have reached at an understanding of life as a finite span of time. For me, the broken glass was life interrupted; the time in the watch was the opposite of a smile (10:10 vs. 3:40.)
