Hello competitioners, batteriesfeelincluded fans and black-hearted plagiarists. It's been a thrilling week or so, and all of us here are overjoyed with the success of what is hopefully the first of many batteriesfeelincluded drawing competitions. The entries were frequently of an above average quality, and you should all be proud of yourselves.
Special mentions go to Dan Beames for capturing the semi-lifeless feel of a body frozen in ice, and to Cadburywolf, Briedle and Ninebucks for their impressive illustratorial nous.
However, there can only be one winner, and after much discussion, a nearly unanimous decision (if you count me as eight or more people) was reached. The winner is... Ballookey. The piece was graphically inventive, and managed to not only capture the tone and content of the story, but also add to it in an unexpected way. So congratulations, Ballookey. Your prize will never be announced or exist.

"I was too wrinkled to be called a man, and too man to be called a wrinkle" is a surprisingly useful phrase that I now use daily. Thanks.ReplyDelete

John, what you have quoted is not a phrase. There are not many phrases of any particular worth in that excerpt. What you have there is two clauses linked together (perhaps innapropriately with a comma and a conjunction) creating a compound sentence. It could have become a complex sentence if removing the comma and the 'and' and replacing with a semi-colon ';'.ReplyDelete
