The theme selected for week sixty one of Operation Graphite  will be: It belongs in a Museum.


It’s not all about fortune and glory, sometimes it’s about preserving the past, and sometimes its about the balance between good over evil. Imagine you’re illustrating an artifact. Perhaps you’ve been making sketches in a moleskin notebook, on your travels back though the Amazon after finding the Lost City of Z. Maybe you’re creating a diary, culminating research for your future expedition to Shamballa. Or what if you’ve returned from Bjarmaland, but not after nearly losing your life to power hungry fascists looking for an artifact they believe will give them unlimited power. You’ve made it back safe and sound, there’s a chance to study this mysteiorus object you almost lost your life obtaining. Before Marcus Brodie adds it to the museum’s permanent collection, and the public gets to see it, you get a chance to appreciate and illustrate this ancient relic.

Please submit a drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media that fits the theme, It belongs in a museum. Draw a relic that a Tomb Raider would bring back. Perhaps it is a simple artifact, ore maybe it’s a huge ornate relic that you would need a tank to drag home.

All art work is due on Thursday 4.25.13. Submissions will be published the following Friday 4.25.13

There will be no Operation Graphite for the week of April 19th! I will be digging in the black Sand looking for the Tiki Idol of Haumea.  

Happy Digging.
