Yay, my favorite! I love the grab bag storyboard. Arguably my best of the night, though I am so grateful for the creative energy in that room and all of the art that it inspired. Thanks, Warriors, for an awesome meeting! Now, here's my storyboard using the following 10 words:
jaundiced - frank - beetle - breathe - front - last - great - labor - time - free
"Somewhere deep the Amazon ... two beetles were about to experience a great challenge ...."
"Anita! What is it?!"
"The birth of their first batch of eggs ..."
"It's time, Frank! It's time! I'm in labor!"
"Just breathe! I'm coming, baby!"
"Frank climbed as fast as he could, only to arrive as the last of their dozens of eggs was laid onto Anita's leaf...in front of their father's worried eyes."
"They gasped to see that all the eggs were jaundiced and bad .... destined for demise."
"My dear, they are dying ..."
"It can't be ... we are free!"
"And they lived happily, childless, for all their days."
This work of art is a result of our grab bag activity. Basically, you write down the first 10 random words that come to your head and then select a genre from our grab bag. This time, I drew the 4-panel comic. For more genre ideas and links to other examples, click here. My words for this particular activity were:
