I think we should have a hitRECord coloring book, consisting mostly of line drawings that would be fun to color (with crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc.), but also some black & white photography and maybe a few pages with tiny stories the kid or adult could draw (i.e., most of the page is blank). Maybe even some extra blank pages for hr-inspired drawing!
There is a Coloring Book collab (see Resources), but I think we should make it happen (it'd be so easy!) and should expand it with some pages for drawing & illustrating.
At any rate, these are images & stories I would put in such a book. They're the images I'd enjoy coloring in (and maybe will) and the stories I think could be fun to illustrate (in particular, they suggest very strongly a visual image and/or could be illustrated different ways).
but stories are not set in stone
their shapes are always shifting.
suns lit up like fireworks
and mountain tops were lifting.
meadows stretched and liquefied
and poured into the ocean,
whose waves formed winged beasts that leapt
and fluttered into motion.
great rocks rose to meet the stars
wishing a better view
the highest peaks were dusted white
each day, pristine and new
in order, from right to left!

oh and yes, all those people were hitRECorders in that video. except for that guy, we don't know who he was.
so with a song and dance a tiny story came to be a star that lit their eyes up and enabled them to see.
A doodle I do sometimes when I'm bored and out of creative ideas - figured it could be used for a texture or background by someone, somehow. It's not exactly perfect, but I kind of like the little inconsistancies. Gives it character, I think.
This is a super-duper high resolution file, so download if you want it ginormous.
Jacob dreamed there was a ladder stretching from earth to heaven. Angels were ascending and descending on the ladder. Except for Larry. As the angel with the lowest seniority, he had to stay at ...
The house they lived in was really, really haunted. But they never knew it, because all the ghosts had terrible performance anxiety.
I haven't released a RECord in a long time so I might be a little rusty. Let me know what you think! Feel free to edit this as much as you want. It's an honor to be REmixed. I think this one could be really cool if you crop it off along one of the waves and make it a cool pattern of ground for some new world. Just an idea.
Because crayola_sky said she wanted one (starfield and folding instructions not included. :) Sorry some is cut off, but my scanner doesn't catch right to the edge of an 8.5x11 page.
If you do fold your own, I'd love to see a picture!
...in which Proi dates herself terribly.
Just a goofy, quick, fun doodle! My history with different recording devices through the decades. I've always played around with recording devices, from a toy recorder up to whatever we had to shoot home movies on. The VHS camera was heavy as hell, but I was always playing with it. I still remember exactly what sounds it made and how it felt to have it up on my shoulder.
I loved recording so much that I took a broadcast program in 2000. Not pictured here: betacams handed down from local TV stations, miniDV cams, MiniDisc, 8-track, cart decks, Hi-8, reel to reel (yes! I cut and pasted actual tape) hard-wired studio cameras and a Marantz deck.
I think some of the charm has gone out of recording without physical media. Or at least, physical media that I can understand,
I've been commissioned by a local children's theatre to do their poster/program art for the next season. :)
this is 1/5 but at least two of the others have recent copyrights and are pretty recognisable from their subject matter, so I'll post the ones I can when I finish them. :D
Actually, there is a monster under my bed. And I can't figure out how to make it happy.
I might color this when it's not 2:30AM. xD Thought you guys might be able to do something with the lines.
Second picture in the 'say it with your hair' series that i just started. Thanks to everyone in tinychat for the suggestions of phrases/sayings :D
Love iambatgirl's lovely and magical creatures in her coloring book...check out her beautiful illustrations :-
I loved Rtistiquebookworm's drawing of this tiny story so I thought I would pen it in. Someone should definitely color this though. This is definite coloring book material I think. Isn't there a coloring book collaboration somewhere? Oh well, have fun with it.
