I could not be more excited then to see all 36 drawings of tornados for the first day of the Seven Day Daily Create Challenge (and I realize my tweets and blog posts may be bordering on annoying in frequency, but hey, go take it up with my Drill Sergeants).

I hope to see y’all (and more for today’s challenge: a photo of an outdoor scene without any human artifacts). Remember as you go, that te challenge is at the end to weave all seven into some sort of narrative.

Everyone who completed the day 1 gets an “A” (that stands for teh Awesome).

Among the many colorful swirls for tornado drawings, some favorites for interpreting the assignment include (and folks, embedding is easier if y’all make ’em creative commons):

Michael Branson Smith brings his own twist of whacky fun by bringing the tornado full of cats to the ballpark.

The starkness of this drawing is lovely, done with pencil on a Post-It note!

Also I am excited to see my friend George Greet drawing!

I just adore the textures and sense of intrigue that comes out of this drawing.
