One World One Heart

One World One Heart (OWOH) is an international blogging event that was begun three years ago by Lisa Swifka of A Whimsical Bohemian.

 
It's about meeting other bloggers and exploring their work, whether they are an artist, a writer, or have other interests. And as you visit each blog, you may leave a comment to be entered in a drawing for a "giveaway" item from each blogger.  I'm running a bit late (the event started on January 25), and at this point there are over 1060 bloggers participating.
 
For this giveaway, I'm offering a high quality print of this original work of art by me. The image is a self portrait of my twisted little reality. There is a poem I wrote for my children that goes with this image. Pictures always speak louder than words so they really dig the photo. They make their own conclusions of what is going on which makes the story I wrote that much more interesting because I never know how it is going to end. I'm still playing with the image as every day it takes on a life of its own. Thank you for your visit (a.k.a. Mr. Hatter). 

Okay - here's what you have been waiting for.  Just leave a comment below in the comments section for this blog entry to be entered into a drawing for her, along with a way to get in touch if you're the winner - your blog link, or an email if you're not a blogger. One comment per person, please!

I'll use a random number generator at the end to pick the winner. The event HAS BEGUN and ends at midnight on February 14, 2010. I'll pick the winner on February 15. 

I have just started blogging and I am currently putting together an artist fan page on Facebook - please join my page for updates!

Great print! I love twisted little bits of reality!

lachsekatze said...

I was here just for a short stay - but long enough to have the chance to giggle about the advices from Mr Hatter. Well just about the women-and-shoes-thing: I have to admit that I love my shoes epecially the ones I have for playing football (soccer for the american people) and climbing.
I'd love to be in the draw for your print. It's fantastic. I am still figuring out whether the cat is going out for some shark hunt. In my eyes she looks very hungry. If she traveled to me I would feed her some tasty salmon...
