fortean prompts 12 and 13

Tue Mar 28, 2017, 10:33 AM

sorry i missed a week. i had work and performances of 12 angry men, in dutch, to deal with :) so prompts 12 and 13 are coming together so as to catch up!

i will offer a prompt per week for the calendar year 2017. and to make it more interesting they will be fortean influenced. that's right! 52 freaky-shit prompts this year! 

a few general pointers:
  • there will be one prompt a week, issued usually monday or tuesday.
  • each prompt will be sourced from the fortean areas of research, and as such there will be definitions and possibly other links for quick research before creating your art.
  • the prompt need not be used directly in th art work, but it should at least be included in the artist comments.
  • please include a link to the journal containing the prompt you are responding to and make clear it is for submission to the prompt event in the artist comments.
  • all forms of art are welcome for submission. just note me a link or leave it in the journal comments.
  • each of the submissions will be placed in the fortean prompts folder' in my +favs gallery which will be featured on the upper left of my profile page.
  • 2 or 3 of the previous weeks submissions that i particularly liked will be featured in the newest prompt journal the following week.
this week's prompts:

the thunderbird 

Thunderbird is a term used in cryptozoology to describe large, bird-like creatures, generally identified with the Thunderbird of Native American tradition. Similar cryptids reported in the Old World are often called Rocs. Thunderbirds are regarded by a small number of researchers as having lizard features like the extinct pterosaurs such as Pteranodon. Reports of Thunderbird sightings go back centuries,[1] and the fossil record does show that giant birds (teratorns) with wingspans between 4 and 5 m (12 and 18 ft) were likely contemporary with early man. Today the creature is generally regarded as a myth.


the winchester house 

The Winchester Mystery House is a mansion in San Jose, California, which was once the personal residence of Sarah Winchester, the widow of gun magnate William Wirt Winchester. Located at 525 South Winchester Blvd. in San Jose, the Queen Anne Style Victorian mansion is renowned for its size, its architectural curiosities, and its lack of any master building plan. It is a designated California historical landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is privately owned and serves as a tourist attraction.


submissions from prompt 11

The Book of ChangesYarrow
Stalks odd thoughts
To their limbic hidey-holes.
That’s weird?
The world and your mind move
(Without cause)
As one.
