Evolution: What Crawled Up

August 28th, 2014 by MarkMonlux

This month’s Open Swim was Evolution, wherein creatures were drawn at their various stages of development. It was a rare all-ages event. Voting was done for two categories: Group, and Individual. In Group, the three stages of life for one creature was drawn by three different people. These were determined randomly by the Gamemaster. As you might have guessed, Individual had all three stages drawn by the same person.

The Group category was won by Monlux, Brill & Stowe
The Individual was won by Monlux

You Complete Me – Completed

July 24th, 2014 by MarkMonlux

On Wednesday, July 23rd 2014, The CLAW Open Swim featured “You Complete Me”. Participants were given a partial drawing to complete in an hour. The rules were simple. You could do as many drawings as you wanted, but each would be voted on separately. All participants were given four voting marbles. Black marbles were given to the images that were the most creative and/or interesting. White marbles counted as negative votes for being too mysogynistic. There was a three way tie for third place, and one image was declare more mysogynistic than the others. Credit is given as clearly as could be read from the signatures.
