New Topic: Island of Misfit Toys

Topic suggestion by Adam Ford. Should be a good one.

Optional design exercise: Line (Again)
Since Kevin was the only one to do a mushroom image, we'll repeat the design exercise. Here's a repeat of what I wrote earlier:

This isn't a call for line drawings necessarily, but rather a push to be conscious of what kinds of lines define the edges and shapes in your image, and how they relate to each other. For anyone who wants more information on line here's some good information from Andrew Loomis on line from Creative Illustration: Section on Line, line and composition, line as attention-getting device, relationship of line to emotion Plus, a couple posts from Mark Kennedy with information on line of action that might be useful. That last one he says is on Rhythm, but it seems to have more to do with line than rhythm (plus, we'll have a rhythm exercise later).
