Theme responses: An agent of change

Sorry we’ve been a bit slack getting these responses up this month. Better late than never, I guess.

The ever-on-time Pseudo Rhys has come up with a lovely character, who you can see here.

We were joined this month by Enj, who came up with quirky piece.

Soph has a short written piece up here.

Thanks for playing along this month! Check out the new theme here.

Theme: “They called his name until it didn’t sound like a real word anymore, but he never returned.”

Wow. How did a week go by!? Sorry, we must’ve got distracted or something. Unfortunately that means you’ll have less time for this month’s project.

The theme this month is:

“They called his name until it didn’t sound like a real word anymore, but he never returned.”

This little sentence came to me just after Christmas last year when I was staying with my parents in Canberra for a week or so, and the family dog went missing. We spent so much time calling out his name, wondering if he’d ever come back. After three days, we all started to force ourselves to face the idea that he might not.

And then one morning he just showed up at the back door, exhausted, filthy and needing lots of cuddles. We were all very relieved.

Lost & found

Responses to this month’s theme will be due midnight Monday 1 August.

As usual, shoot us an email (themondayproject85@gmail.com) with your response attached; or, if you’ve got your own site, send us through a link.

Happy creating!

Theme responses: Beach Baths

I’m still hassling a couple of people for typed-up versions of their responses to the Beach Baths theme, but thought we should share what we’ve already received.

Duck Reach has posted a sketch up over here.

Pseudo Rhys has put his response up here.

Mr Sketchy has tried to avoid rambling about what’s behind the picture over here.

And I’ve put up a very rough draft of a short fiction piece here.

Thanks everyone for playing along! If we get anymore responses sent through in the next couple of days, I’ll add them at the bottom here.

For now though, check out the new theme, due Monday 2 May.

Theme: Canberra Autumn

Canberra Autum


This is an image I took just outside my parents’ house in Canberra in the autumn last year. Canberra is stinking hot in summer and freezing cold in winter, but in autumn and spring it’s really very beautiful.

I usually find myself in Canberra in the in-between seasons — in fact, I’m heading there in a couple of weeks for the Easter long weekend — and the prettiness of those seasons never gets old. Canberra is oranges, browns and yellows in the autumn. As the leaves fall, the temperature drops. The air is crisp and the skies are clear. I revel in the chance to wear a coat, scarf and gloves.

Responses to this month’s theme will be due the first Monday of next month, 2 May.

As usual, you can send us through a link to the response on your own site, or, if you don’t have a space of your own, send us the file at themondayproject85@gmail.com, and we’ll post it up here.

Happy creating!

Remember, you’ve got until midnight tonight to send us a response to last month’s theme; we’ll be posting the responses some time tomorrow. If you want to play along, get cracking and send whatever you come up with through to themondayproject85@gmail.com.

So the first monthly theme for the year is due in a week. We got the date a little wrong in the original post — the first Monday of the month is actually 7 March.

To give you some idea of what you might be able to do for this theme, here’s a work-in-progress on the theme by Pseudo Rhys, who’s a Monday Projector from way back. He calls this “Reducks”.

Hope you’re all having fun with the theme — happy creating!
