Art Competition Decision

Caroline, being quite impressed by the entries I’m receiving for this art competition, said she might have a go at drawing an entry. First we discussed Sniper, then she decided against it when I asked which drone shell she would go for. Next we talked about Mr Crane, but she admitted to not being very good at faces. But no problem, since she sees him standing with his face shaded by his hat. Yes, I enthused, he could have his hat casting a shadow across half his face, whilst he stands there in his long coat and lace-up boots, maybe some intestines he’d ripped out dangling from one brass hand, or he could even be holding a human head he’d just ripped off, blood dripping on the floor. Caroline decided she’d draw a bunny rabbit.

As long as it's infested with Jain, it's all good :P

sorta unfair since she can just walk about 5 steps, pick up a copy and read it, or see all the drafts of Orbis on your hard drive.

you wanna make my life difficult? include your wife!

Ach, I'm feeling generous so I'll give her a copy of Orbus - she doesn't need to win one.
