These daily doodles started here, with a note for Alfonso. I had posted an art challenge on Facebook:
I, Erma Zurita, hereby promise to make a small work of art for the first ten people who comment on this post and say "YES, I want in". A 'like' alone is not enough of a commitment. You must in turn post this as your status update and make something for the first ten who comment on your status.
* The rules are simple: it has to be your work, made by you, and the recipient must receive it before 2014 ends.
* It can be anything art-based: a drawing or a conceptual work of art and anything in between. See how that is? SIMPLE.
Yes, you can be on each other's pay it forward lists.
First ten peeps, GO!"
He replied with, "Does a smiley face on a post-it count as art? I am far to lazy to do anything more..."
"...Alfonso Zamora 'cos he doesn't believe a post-it note can be art (I LURVE post-it notes, BTW.).... I will prove this wrong. I have a million post it notes here, I will find a pretty one or make one. Hah!"
Erma has been drawing she was a small child. She received lessons in chalk pastels at age 7, taught herself calligraphy at age 11, and learned the basics of figure drawing at age 13. She became a professional calligrapher in 1995.
