Deck-a-Wall Week Part 2

041910

With Anthony’s help, I was able to get some people to come to my house today after school to get started on some illustrations.  Four steps: drawing, tracing, painting, retracing.

Today, I drew Tweedledee, Tweedledum, the Mad Hatter, and the King of Hearts, while our friend Rhianna took care of the March Hare and the Dormouse.  Michael and Aissa worked on six of the singing flowers from the garden scene.  Joe Salem helped a lot with the tracing, and he did pretty well.  We had a few others help out with some other stuff, but the ones mentioned were the core for the artwork today.

That’s what happened after school until early evening.  When night fell, things started to look bad again.  I was hoping people would stay really late (until about midnight) and help us complete the characters, but many had to go home early.  By twelve, only Anthony was left, and we tried painting the twins.  Later on, desperately in need of help, we went to Dunkin Donuts to pick up Dorcas, who has dubbed herself the Queen of Deck-a-Wall for the tremendous work and effort she put into it two years ago.  When she saw Tweedledee and Tweedledum, she told us how much our painting sucked.

“How can we expect to get anything done if only two people are willing to work on it endlessly?” I thought to myself.  Hope began to diminish.
