I played some music, shut my eyes and put pen to paper.

time flows from top to bottom... what can you see?

border, texture and blurring added in photoshop

in the upper left portion, i see a tape. in the bottom left corner, i see a girl holding something in front of her.

:heart:this is very interesting. it shows the ';passage' of time very creatively. i love the simplicity of it very much. keep up the great work!

It helps to practice beforehand, and don't be afraid to 'cheat' at first by taking a peek from time to time to make sure your hand is in the right place.

I drew this one with my eyes closed the whole time, but by moving my hand down slowly I was able to stop it from becoming a pile of spaghetti ;p

im so intrigued by this. i cant stop looking at it. funny and scary.
i can see lots of faces, little books, maybe the neck of a guitar or a stickman hand, [i think the guitar got broken] a cassette/the bible/a purse, a book, cinderellas pumpkin carriage haha. pffft. maybe a microphone or some kind of cult symbol. mountains. i know what that guy means about the moose. a little guy trapped in some sort of plastic sac. or maybe the wind is blowing on him loads. or he could be going real fast?! i see a ribcage. beats like a cardiac machine. AND LOTS OF STRING.
kthnx.
its been fun.
now make me a t shirt.

...I see a venus fly trap with a frog-like tongue eating a ball of fuzz, in the middle of that. And then I kept looking and realised the ball of fuzz was actually also the eye of the running-away figure on the bottom left, so maybe he doesn't appreciate his eye being eaten by some bastard child of Super Mario enemies :o

Heehee...this is fun. I like this.

You asked for it ;)
From the top I see:
A hat (cowboy?) shaped car being driven (backwards through a tunnel which isn't tall enough :O ) by a person with a long goatee. I see some fake boobies falling off a cliff :w00t: but the almost decapitated guy has his fishing line out trying to save them (why?! Eww!). Under that is a guy with a tv arial on his head and a really big comb, even though he has no hair... oh my, I see it now... he has furry nipples! :bleh: The flying snail on his shoulder looks perplexed. He has the pedestal base of a chair (with castors :boogie: ) instead of legs. I don't think he can get channel 5 either...
... at the very bottom is a phlanax of steam irons chasing Wee Willie Winkie :)
The end :blowkiss:

this is pretty rad, I used to do this, cept I never played music, but yeah I see a lot of shapes in there.

I see a walkman, a guy running with a soda in his hand, a suprised face, a tank, some dude smoking a pipe (or getting his brains blown out) and something that even looks a little like the new years ball they drop in time square ;)

A pile of people similar to the pile of garbage sculptures that I saw in a National Geographic once. In that pile there's also telelvisions, microwaves, and a few moose.

I like. 'Tis odd.
