Arts and Farts and Crafts: Week 2: Outdoors

Posted in arts and farts and crafts with tags , , , , , , on June 20, 2008 by hoagiefest 2020

Arts and Farts and Crafts is a weekly artistic challenge. Every Thursday, a new prompt will be posted here on Ugly Food for an Ugly Dude. Then, you will create some sort of media based on the prompt. Is it a rhyming couplet? A ten-page story? A photograph? A drawing? A recipe? Whatever you’d like. As long as your piece of art is a new creation and it’s vaguely inspired by the week’s prompt, it’s in!

To enter, post your entry on your blog. Then, e-mail me at with a link to your entry. I will then make a round-up post sharing your art on my website, as well as the requisite linkage.

This week’s theme: Outdoor Photography.

Here is my entry:

I got the colors I wanted, but I have a few problems with my final entry. We came up with the theme last week when it was sunny and beautiful, and this week was overcast and rainy. Furthermore, I got a little overzealous with the effects of Photoshop Express, so this is a bit too sharp and oversaturated. However, I got the colors I wanted when I snapped the picture, and it captures a bit of a weird moment.

Here is the entry of my friend Nichole:

Here is next week’s prompt, chosen by Nichole.

“Listen, my friend, there are two races of beings. The masses teeming and happy — common clay, if you like — eating, breeding, working, counting their pennies; people who just live; ordinary people; people you can’t imagine dead. And then there are the others — the noble ones, the heroes. The ones you can quite well imagine lying shot, pale and tragic; one minute triumphant with a guard of honor, and the next being marched away between two gendarmes.”
-Jean Anouilh

Entries can be submitted in any medium.  The end-date for submissions is Thursday June 25.  Be sure to notify me at!
