Medium: Graphite on 104lb. translucent vellum
Artist: Tom Davie
Size: 9 x 7 inches
Date: 2009

In an effort to attract new readers and to encourage the participation of current ones, this original graphite drawing is in search of a new home.

The rules are simple, beginning now, I will keep track of reader comments and whoever has the most as of Friday, March 06, 2009, will find themselves the proud owner of this work — I will even cover the shipping costs.

In order to be eligible, you must:
1. Have access to a computer, carrier pigeon messages sent to my home will not be counted
2. Have a porch, mailbox, or P.O. Box so I can send you the drawing
3. Be at least 14. I’m not fond of sending small children random packages, plus I don’t want calls from any irate parents

How comments will be counted:
1. I will moderate all comments, this will allow me to keep track of who posted what, when
2. Use one consistent comment ID, if you comment under three different names I can’t keep track of you
3. Anonymous posts will not be counted
4. Irrelevant one word or spam comments will be discarded
5. If you view a comment on the site, it means that it has been moderated and counts toward your total

Where you can comment:
1. Any post on the studiotwentysix2 blog
2. Any post on the 30 Drawings in 30 Days site

How will I know where I stand?
1. Each Friday, the top five commenters will be identified with their totals

When does the commenting period for this drawing close?
1. Friday, March 06, 2009. 12:00 EST
2. Any comments made after 12:00 will not count toward your total

I have the most comments, now what:
1. Sit back and relax, but first give me an address so I can send you the well-earned drawing.

For a closer inspection, here are two detail shots of the drawing:

Hi Tom. Is this the Tom Davie from UD Visual Arts? I'm not sure how I came to receive your emails, but I suspect it was through someone at UD sharing my email address. The work of yours that I've seen over the past few months has been very interesting. Are you a fine artist full-time, or is there another job that pays the bills?

Hi Danielle, it’s Tom from UD. I tracked down a few email addresses from other alums whose work I enjoyed.

These days I spend much of my time devoted toward the artistic side of design.

To make a living, I do a combination of selling artwork, freelance graphic design and I received an MFA — so I am able to teach at the university level as well.

Thanks for the comments, and your insight is much appreciated.

Hi Tom. I'm glad to hear that it's you. I'm impressed that you're bravely making your living as an "artist." After years in the corporate world, I'm not exactly sure if I would still call myself that. Some days I just want to get the design (and writing) out the door, off the list, and move on to the next project. Not very inspired, is it? I guess that's why I've been motivated to go back to school recently, to puruse a Master's degree in writing. I like the structure of academia -- it forces me to be productive!
Take care.
