Ah good another chance to lose :P
Hmmm, got an idea already, ooh I like my idea.
Aww, I like all my ideas, if only somebody else did too.
I'd say I'll try and get it done soon and I might but then again I might not :P
I havea bad feeling I'm going to make this month hard on my self as well... those damn monkeys, I don't think I'd ever drawn a monkey before then.

The thing I enjoy most about the monthly challenge is that it forces me to sit down and draw something that I would not normally. I think I add a little extra challenge for myself too (note the last comic) but I do enjoy pushing myself hard.

Wow. School camp was never like that! Cool stuff so far guys. I'm always impressed at what people come up with in their own interpretations. You can literally take one idea and spread it a million different ways.

More. MORE! :oD

School camp (years 7-9) usually the cool guys talking about the merits of gladwrap and elastic bands as a contraceptive they were planning to use on some girl who was considered easy (usually nothing happened as the girl was not easy and was bright enough to pick an idiot when she saw one).

Year 10 the cool guys get hand jobs under blankets as the rest of us watch Evil Dead and Maniac on video (yes they were a new release, that???s how old I am) Girls find cup of warm ???milk??? left by all boys Private School also staying in hostel?? Country boys being chased by knife wielding ???Lebanese Tigers??? down the streets of Melbourne ...

Ahhh memories :)
