Can it be a fictional thing that starts with an A? Like an AT-AT wearing bunny slippers and holding a cup of coffee?

Aging drag queen is androgynous.

Many of the Hawaiian birds I study (aka honeycreepers) begin with A: akepa, apapane, amakihi, akikiki, anianiaau, alala, akohekohe, akiapolaau...

I'm working on "Acanthus & Absinthe", not so abstract afterall. If only I could get that Aardwolf in there.

Anyone been to Changi Airport (Singapore) recently? Jeez, Rovio's self-sacrificing avian creations really have taken over the place.

Back from my 2-week trip to Malaysia. This is a nice derby to come back to

Go... GO!!! I just moved - TWICE. It sucks all kinds of [insert]. We sold, moved to a hotel, then had to wait to finalize a buy, then move again... Oh, and did I mention it was frickin' CHRISTMAS?? My total sympathies. But I would SO love to see a lonesome lemur from you. You do rodentia so well (from your big love) and Aye-ayes and other lemurs are so visually close. Please do! Aye-ayes are so incredibly ugly... How can you resist?

I re-read the derby nounce to check, and I didn't see anything barring fictional critters, pop-culture, or any such-like. More's the pity. I don't mean that toward your sub - sounds like it could be fun. I'm just bummed that the perennial memes aren't banned in any way, shape or form. SOMEONE or someones, will shoehorn a turbunguin in somehow.

Want. Want, want, want. I'm not sure it will pass the filter though. The rejectionator is fickle on these letter derbies. Sometimes an expression passes, and other times it has to be an actual thing. Let's hope 'angry' works. Because, really, it NEEDS to. +1 in advance.

paigeg wrote:Amber starts with A. Would someone be up for rendering an amber pendant? The thought I had was that the occlusions inside the amber resembled a woman's face. "Trapped in Amber". It could be a pendant something like this (the top) one.



Shameless bump. And before someone starts on me about 'do the idea yourself', let's be clear. I can draw. I have been diligently trying to apply that to graphic design. Dismal results. Ideas, I got. Time to learn the craft (money to buy the tools, practice to learn how to optimize them) - at the moment, not so much. Doesn't mean I don't have suggestions to toss out.
/rant
Still would like to see someone pick this up, with a face or human figure suggested in the amber. Just sayin.

My first thought is a need for some shading to give the images some depth. Beyond that - wonderful choice. The albatross about the Mariner's neck. Very literary, and still theme-evocative. Coolies!

Cool design!
I feel like your composition would be better if you extended the background texture further to the right. It seems a bit lop sided. Just a thought.
