Re: Alphabet Dragon




Long ago the noble alphabet dragons roamed the skies over the Land of Education. They spent long, lazy afternoons swooping down from the skies and snatching prey with their pencil-sharp claws. It seemed the reign of these mighty beasts would never come to an end, but one day humans came, and with them the dreaded calculus unicorns, the only creatures known to be able to harm the alphabet dragons. Eventually, nearly all the dragons fell to the infinitesimal points at the end of the unicorns’ horns. Today the great beasts are nearly extinct, but you can help bring them back to prosperity with a donation to the Alphabet Dragon Rescue Fund. Time is running out for these fantastic creatures. Won’t you find it in your hearts to give generously to their cause?



Side note to everyone used to hearing from me in the forums: My week ahead is super tightly packed, so I won’t be able to do much chatting... you probably won’t hear from me most days. I’ll try to drop in when time allows... good luck to everybody!

Re: Deco Letters



This took forever. Each letter was hand drawn and is completely unique. Check out the detail here!

Just a silly picture that popped in my head.
Lotsa little letters attacking a poor pup.

Re: Next Time...?



Perhaps it is a lonely cry hearkening back to simpler times when the alphabet song could express our desires so much better than we could...

Enjoy!

Re: The English Genetic Code



The idea here is "letters are the DNA of words" With only 26 letters you can create a language with thousands and thousands of words"

Wow, you squeezed way more creativity out of this idea than I would have thought possible. The O and Q thing is hilarious, as is the Y. 1up.

Re: Buy A Vowel



So as soon as I heard the theme was "The Alphabet" I knew I wanted to use the phrase "The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog" because it uses all the letters of the alphabet... the only catch was the rule about each letter must be used once and only once... so I put the phase on the Wheel Of Fortune board with the Phrase "Buy A Vowel?" so that all the letters appear on the shirt once and only once... ENJOY!

Or your monkey can write "Hamlet" all by itself, probably only took 30 minutes.

I don't think duplicate letters are allowed. You've got two Os in there.

Exactly right. One monkey, one set of alphabet blocks. 30 minutes and two bananas later.
