One Million Giraffes

Ok, so here's a fun thing....I just submitted an entry to One Million Giraffes!

Here's the link: http://www.olahelland.net/giraffes/
"My friend, Jørgen, doesn't believe I can collect one million giraffes by 2011. I'm gonna prove him wrong, but I need your help. You can create your giraffe(s) in any way you like, but not on a computer and no store bought objects. You must create your giraffe(s) yourself! Click here to read why. So far I've got 146 399 giraffes, so I need 853 601 more and I have 493 days left. Let's show Jørgen how amazing the internet is."
Ya GOTTA take a look and see all the creative giraffes! There's one made from an orange peel, a "Giraffe with a Pearl Earring", a "Last Supper" giraffe, a "Scream" giraffe, giraffes made of twigs/leafs/coins/fruits/potato chips/Legos/origami/clay.....from all over the world! It's amazing!! Whole classrooms of kids have submitted drawings.

I saw this on alissa4012's flickr account. She submitted two beautiful drawings.

fun, fun

Love the website - I had also submitted my giraffe! It's great just to see all the creativity amongst all ages. Love your giraffe as well, so realistic. I like the way his mouth is... :P

Wonderful drawing! I've always loved giraffes! People used to call me giraffe as a nickname, but then again I got tons of nicknames.. but I personally think that Giraffes are adorable, and you definitely have shown a load of that element here. :)
