    I've thought about joining in with this, but you're all amazing artists, and I'd feel a bit dumb and useless cos I can only copy pictures, so i don't know if i should sign up. Also, I know I'm a bit slow on the uptake, but how does the santee get the picture? Do i just take a photo of it and email it? or do I post it to them?, and can I have someone who doesn't want a picture of zombies or murderous baddies if i sign up?

    I think most people are pretty open as to what they would like, and yes you take a photo and email it to [email protected]

    I am not ultra creative but I am still going to participate, I don't think everyone is looking for the most original piece of artwork ever necesarily.

    You should definitely join in!
