Inspiration #22 - Something that frightens you

Whew!  Back with power and back on the Internet!!  So here we finally have round 22's submissions.  I was thrilled to see a few artists we haven't seen in awhile as well as meet our newest artist, John R.  Welcome John!

If you would like to participate in the ACoLab please do.  Read more about how to submit here. You can find our upcoming bi-monthly inspirations here and our anytime inspirations here.  I also have some new plans in store for the AColab coming up soon so stay tuned.  Remember, you can always click on an artist's name to learn more about a particular work/person or see more from that artist.  Thanks for visiting the lab and enjoy "Something that frightens you". 

"Watching Me"


by John R.

"Fossilized Grimace"

"All by Myself"

Thanks to everyone who submitted!  Hope to see you back here on the 5th for our next theme, "Space".  I am excited to see what "Space" brings as it can be interpreted in so many different ways! 

We interrupt this normally scheduled post to bring you this notice

Thanks to everyone who submitted for round #22. I will be posting all submissions when I get power again.  Knoxville has had a record power outage and I can't post from my computer until that power resumes...  I suppose I could but for right now I don't have plans to take my huge computer to a remote location.  I have been told it could be as many as 14 days until I get power again although my fingers are crossed for tonight...or when I get home from writing this.  The storm on the 21st cracked and downed so many trees and transformers that it's impossible to know when things will be back to normal.  But stay tuned for "Something that frightens me"!  Too bad I already made my submission or I would have to create a "14 days without power" entry!  Round #22 did have a nice turnout though including some ACoLab veterans we have not seen in awhile and a new member!  If you would like to submit for this last round please do so and I will add it to the post.  Until then, be safe and enjoy electricity, power is awesome.

"Screen Test"

Inspiration #21 - Front page of the news

Thanks to all of those who submitted this week!  If you would like to join in the fun, please do.  Questions?  The theme for the next round is a creepy one...wonder what I was thinking of when it came to mind, "Something that frightens you".  I hope to see you all back here then.  As always, click on an artists name or visit their Artist Page to learn more about their submission or see others from the past.

Thanks for visiting the ACoLab!  Oh, and stay tuned, I have some new collaborative ideas in store for us all and hope you get as excited about them as I am.  Now, onto round #21, Front Page of the news.
