replies: "Thanks a lot! Really, this one was just a bit of amusement for the autumn holiday. When you think about it, it’s rather strange that it should be so easy to make a simple vegetable look scary "

That’s bloody cool Helle! You should have joined with it to the Halloween contest... Anyway, it’s really good
What’s up with you btw? It’s been quite some time since we last talked Helle Jorgensen
replies: "Hey thanks! I don’t recall from the top of my mind, but weren’t the contest pictures meant to be new submissions? This one is from last year, so it hardly counts. Anyhow, unlike your Halloween item, this image is so unexceptionally traditional that I doubt I’d have claimed any prizes with it . But yeah - I should submit some new pieces before the end of the year. I’ve been way to busy with my PhD, since I’ve less than 3 months till I’ve to hand it in."

You’re right... it’s from last year...well, I was never known as one who would actually read the small lines in a contract or obey the rules
But you should really join the Christmas contest
And good luck with your phd
replies: "Hm... the Christmas contest. Yeah, maybe, if I manage to produce something new by the deadline. I haven’t participated in a contest since the ’funniest tour of Elfwood’ one (and now the tour function is defunct.... I used to love making tours). You know, you’re picking at my bad conscience here ... "

Ye, I remember seeing something about the ’funniest tour of Elfwood’, If I remember right you won the 1st place
Though I never understood what was the purpose of those tours
I know this option isn’t available any more, but I’ll be happy to know more about it... Will you tell me? Helle Jorgensen
replies: "The purpose of tours? Well, sharing some nice pictures that are otherwise scattered across Elfwood, of course. Think of them like themed exhibitions. The tours used to be a good way to discover good artists and pictures, especially according to particular interests. It was much more fun to do a commented tour of, say, Halloween-themed art (or whatever other theme/technique/medium/colour/you name it) than to enter e.g. ’halloween’ in the search engine and browse thousands of random pictures."
