    Cort,
    I think you left the e-mail address out.
    Is there a deadline for this?
    I guess they are looking for an appropriate theme of this illness as a representation for the art work?

    The "odd" part works.

    This is the kind of art I do all the time.

    I can send in a few samples of my work, if I have the email address.

    Here's a sketch I did ages ago of a wee beached shark. While it pretty accurately depicts what we feel like most of the time, it would certainly give the wrong message for treatment guidelines! :eek:

    Ta! :)

    the "Bedazzlement" pic is a very old one, 10 years?? or more old, but I still like how it turned out :)

    Silver,
    Great imagery! I especially like the SquidfaceMan, because he looks to me like the malevolent deity that rules over all our myriad parasites and pathogens!

    E.T.A. I vote for him for the cover, as he represents what the treatments are up against ;)

    *bows* thank you! :)
    Hm, so, Cthulhu invented ME/CFS?! Hey it all makes sense now: torments from an Elder Cthonic God of Evil! :p
    Does that make Wessely, Yog-Sothoth?! hehe

    Gee, thanks! :ashamed:

    Your painting is beautiful and quite suited for the hopefulness we all hold even as we are lost in the the craggy, barren landscape of this illness. I hope you submit it.

    Well, not being fmiliar with Lovecraft, I had to look up both Cthulhu and Yog-Sothoth... And while Cthulhu remains a contender for Presider over the Evil That Is M.E., I sincerely hope Wessely et al have no ties with Yog-Sothoth as defined by Wikipedia, or else we are in BIG trouble...

    Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. He knows where They have trod earth's fields, and where They still tread them, and why no one can behold Them as They tread.
    H. P. Lovecraft, "The Dunwich Horror"


    By the way, the Wiki image for Y-S looks like the Flying Spaghetti Monster!

    Okay I'm way OT now. Signing off before I derail this thread.

    I think they just need a good photo or art of a doctor learning about supplements. Thank goodness many do, but not all of them.

    They want to display a piece of art from a patient. Sallysblooms, you are very talented. I'm sure you can come up with something beautiful. It's not about winning really. If they have enough entries, they want to make a book out of it. I think that's cool.
