:icona-glass-brightly:
There is so much going on in this exquisite corpse that deserves attention. Starting with the bottom of the image: A respectful representation of two ancient cultures. A Celtic patriarch with noble features wears a serious expression. In the background appears what seems to be the silhouette of a moonlit battle. To his right, a wise American stares into the distance, a peaceful look in his eyes. Their traditions have shaped the beauty and spirituality of our world throughout history. The tokens of their traditions, feathers and Celtic knots, spiral up toward the details of nature and humanity mixing in harmony.

Some but not as much as I would like

I finished a tentacle puppet that will become the tail and nose for It   It part oneThe origins of “It”
The navigator, Faolon De Louzac Silverflame, of the fine and upstanding Airship Iron Shark was out time traveling in hopes of amassing a delicious assortment of precious stones, golden bobbles, bronze bells and other forms of portable wealth with which to decorate her person. Mostly she was bored.
And as such the most fine lady Silerflame found herself trying to use her truly magnificent bosom to distract a member of the Beefeaters to keep the man from calling out to his fellow Tower Of London guards to help him with the intruder he had found in the treasure room. (And that is another tale in and of itself)
All she succeeded in doing was getting herself back into her time machine and as the man was raising both his crossbow and the alarm, our fair navigator simultaneously shoved the power control to full red line ain’t got no more and the destination controls to anywhere but here. “Go go GO”
After a prolonged and rough ride, our wayward

The candy was about the size and shape of a mushroom cap that Omar would use in cooking. “As always Michel, you craftsmanship and presentation are impeccable.” Closing his eyes, he raised the confection to his nose and inhaled deeply and slowly. “Oh meo myo, the bouquet is of the things that dreams are made of.”  With his eyes still closed Omar the Orange the ship’s cook, master chef and culinary artisan of the fine Airship Iron Shark took the tiniest bite getting just the chocolate off the outside. “Exquisite, this is so complex; there are layers on layers of flavors. There is of course the bitter sweet richness of the chocolate. But also there is a hint of smokiness married to the fruitiness.” The great master chef raised the candy to his nose one last time and inhaled before tossing the whole thing into his mouth and chewing slowly. “My dear, dear friend, I have held you in high respe

Wonderful! I will explain the process, and when you are ready we will exchange addresses.
Exquisite Corpse: The first artist draws on half of the page and when they are done they cover the drawing, all except a one inch strip at the edge of the drawing. You send it to the second artist who completes the second half using the uncovered strip as reference for the rest of their drawing. Once the entire drawing is completed it is revealed and uploaded to both artist's sites.
If you are interested have a lot of fun with it, I look forward to your half. Of course I will be sending you one to finish as well, but I will wait for yours first to see if you are serious about participating, I hope you don't mind.
Thank you, looking forward to working together.

Very Nice! :)  The two styles weave together nicely through the motif of natural patterns, and it shows how well Native Americans and Celts connected themselves to the natural world.

Yes, it's serious times. We are fighting for a Europe closer to the ideals of ancient Greeks, where justice and equality reign supreme. Unfortunately, Europe has developed into a right wing club that blackmails any country that doesn't follow their rules and standards and aims to overthrow governments. I thought that's exactly what we fought against in two world wars...
And thanks, Marc :)

Serious times indeed.
I shouldn't complain about our government, because we are not experiencing hard times like you are in Greece, but sometimes Harper makes it feel like we have a dictatorship.
