The Sketch Lottery
squad is back at it again, and this time they are hitting home with their subject choice. For those unfamiliar with exactly who The Sketch Lottery is and what they do, here is a brief synopsis. Basically they pick a subject, and anyone can submit a version of that subject that they have created. Once a persons piece is entered, they also get to nominate a character that is inserted into "the lottery". Every week a new character is chosen as a subject from the lottery, starting the fun all over again. So the more people who take on a character, the more choices are entered into the lottery... and the cycle grows and grows. They have tackled over 40 + characters so far, and the list of contributors keeps increasing! Our very own Tommy Lombardozzi and Joe Esq often submit pieces, and the best part about the whole thing is skill level and technique are not taken into consideration. You can create any version of the character you like, and it will be posted! Some real great versions end up being produced. This weeks subject is the one and only original blaxploitation kung-fu hero Black Belt Jones! BBJ was portrayed by Jim Kelly in two flicks, Black Belt Jones and Hot Potato... and he is the model for one of my favorite cinematic characters of all time, Black Dynamite! The submissions on this character are still rolling in, so check back at Sketch Lottery
throughout the week to see what else people submit. My faves of the current submitted lot are after the jump... enjoy!
You can join the fun too... read the submission rules here for this week or future projects!
