Today is Art Challuunge’s 4th birthday!

pew pew pew A long time ago, in a blogosphere far far away… there were some dudes that thought that there should be a challenge, nay, a CHALLUUNGE! to bring together artists who do art for a living and artists who do art for fun… and thus, the Random Words Art Challuunge was born, May 29th, 2009. 

Ever since that fateful day the challuunges have been presented in several different ways. 

  • First there was the 3 word challuunges, which were thought to be too challenging to the modern challengers.
  • In the beginning the words were randomly drawn from a list of random words that subscribers provided, along with the admin’s lists… three sets of three words were randomly drawn and voted on by the admin’s and the most popular was chosen for that week’s words. 
  • Then, the power of the weekly random word choosing was turned over to the submitters, and the voting system was generated to allow the person with the most votes each week to choose the following week’s words. 
  • The random words were then cut from 3 to 2 words per week.

And this is how it has remained for quite sometime now.  If it weren’t for you the submitter’s, this blog would be one dude submitting and winning each week… so thank you all… you rule the RWAC universe, whether you know it or not…

Here is an interesting search on the old google that randomly picks up lots of different things that have been posted here over the years.  Check it out if you have some time… it’s quite fun.


See you all next Friday, June 7th for BIRD / DRYER.  Peace!

Winner announced! Extended challuunge!

‘What is that?’ You might ask…Once thought to be extinct, the Frilled Shark is often called a “living fossil” because the species has barely changed since prehistoric times.

Hey, 43% of the vote makes Adina our winner this week!  Adina, you have until NEXT Friday, June 7th, to provide two words.

That brings me to this week… it’s a short one and there are many things going on here at RWAC headquarters, so we will be extending the challuunge until NEXT Friday, June 7th.  That’s one full extra week to come up with a great submission for BIRD / DRYER.  Why not get started now?  Maybe even crank out a few this time?  Let your imagination run wild.
