Giveaway Winners

Thanks to everyone who entered the Giveaway! I cannot tell you how charmed I was by your answers. I have to say that I went into this thinking that at the end of the Giveaway I would give you the "right answers" what I found was that you had more "right answers" than I did!

Many of you guessed creative influences that I had not intentionally added to the piece, but in retrospect I must admit are clearly present in the drawing; a subconscious addition culled from the collective unconscious, the creative aethers, that we all have access to.

So for the curious, the creative spirits that I intentionally added to the piece are:

     - Van Gogh - his face can be seen in the palette on the left

     - DaVinci - Vetruvian Man in the stack of papers on the left.

     - Shakespeare - his signature on the spine of the first book under the door.

     - Virginia Woolf - her signature on the spine under Shakespeare's book.

     - Hemingway - his typewriter on the right.

     - Isadora Duncan - her ballet slippers

     - Klimt - stylized carvings on the tree limbs


Some of the fabulous guesses made in the comments include:

  • Lewis Carrol
  • Kepler/Newton
  • Burmester
  • Poe
  • Galileo
  • Tolkien
  • Joyce
  • Rimbaud
  • Kerouac
  • Anton Pieck
  • Stradivarius
  • J.M. Barrie

NOW! I extended the giveaway by a few days last week because some blogs had picked up the info and I wanted to give more people a chance to enter. I also added another winner.

The two print winners are Jenny Davies-Reazor and Sam (chosen randomly)

Since this was so fun - I'll be hosting another giveaway soon - so stay tuned for another opportunity.
