things that are awesome

(A few things I think are awesome.)

I've got an idea for a new illustration - but I thought it would be fun to ask for some community involvement.

Leave me a comment listing five things you think are awesome. We're talking material things here, not intangibles like "true love." Objects. Things I can draw.

On top of helping me with my new piece, listing things that are awesome is a pretty good pick-me-up for a Monday.

Tell me, what things do you think are awesome?

(Note: You can list as many awesome things as you wish - just leave a separate comment for each five items. Assuming that this illustration comes to fruition, I will pick one of the commenters to win a free print. Be aware that I make no promises that I will actually finish the print or that it will happen in a timely manner. But if it does, I will send a print to one of my commenters. Thanks so much!)
