I am Cooley – freelance fantasy illustrator and outdoor enthusiast.
I work full time (project management) and only do art for fun, which means my schedule is all over the place. However, I always appreciate feedback and will respond to comments, as well as make an effort to view others' art and leave comments. If you are looking to connect with me and/or the community, check out the #IamAnthro chat room and the below groups:
Project Educate: Haiku, Senryu, Tanka, and RengaAs part of Poetry Forms week at projecteducate, we wanted to go into a bit of detail regarding some of the more well-known Eastern forms of writing. The same way there are many forms of Western poetry, there are many forms of Eastern poetry, and ultimately this article will barely begin to scrape the surface of even the forms that it actually touches on, but within this article, there are links to resources that delve further into the subject matter, and all are worth reading if the subject interests you.wreckling

What Your Challenge Is
This was a suggestion by our very own member, CrystalSabre! So, what would a ball of string look like if it was anthropomorphized? Would it be terrorized by the constant claws of a cat? Would it be falling endlessly in a summer's breeze? Would it be attached to something like a shoe? Or maybe belong to an elderly lady knitting away! What would the life be of a ball of string?
