Come here often? About our Next "Famous" Picnic...

http://www.dottyhill.com/portfolio/

What did Dorothy say to Elizabeth Bennett when Paddington Bear came stumbling in, marmalade spilt all down his freshly laundered coat? "Well, I never, it must be Scribble Picnic!"

That's right, our next art meetup for this coming Wednesday, Jan 10th, is all about presenting your favourite person (or creature) from fiction. It doesn't have to be a literary character — s/he could just as well come from the movies, a TV show, or even comics. You tell us, and please share why you chose this particular hero/heroine/antihero/nemesis or what have you. Thank you! Can't wait to see who you bring along. Won't it be the most thrilling picnic? I mean, I've always wanted to ask Sherlock about Dr. Who, for example. :)

A world full of possible candidates are just waiting to be invited. Check them out! Better make sure our snack offering is also worthy of such appeal. Yes, this IS going to be fun! :) If you haven't joined us in a while or want to jump in for the first time, the start of a new year is as good a time as any. Oh, and if you think of it, perhaps you'd even consider what your character might say noodling with the rest of us? I can see it now... The Pink Panther to Dorothy: "Um, heh, any pink diamonds in that emerald city of yours?"

    1. :) Thank you, Laurie. Great to have you back. To help set the mood, I've just added some quick promo videos you might enjoy.

      If you are on IG or Twitter, you could always join us there, alternatively, by simply using #scribblepicnic and hash tag the prompt ("fictioncharacter").

      It's going to be fun. My "invite" list is getting rather long. Hmm...perhaps I need to whittle it down come? :)

    1. Nothing make me more thrilled that to read that. Thank you! Yes, I wrote "nemesis" specifically with you in mind, dear Rain. I trust it to be suitably mysterious and possibly dark. Enjoy. Can't wait to see who your drag in, as it were. :)

    1. I AM glad you saw the humour in that denim dress, msut say. It still burns in the back of my memory banks, ya know. :) Maybe you could wear that with your accompanying "date" or character to the Fiction Picnic? Now, talk about making a lasting impression. :D Thank you

  9. actually, I have a ton of favorite characters I could draw, far too many, but strangely, I couldn't even think of a single name now. just check out the pintest board - looks good. I'll try to finish something.

    have a lovely day.
