I drew about a dozen sheep for that. I got paid, but I like to think of it more as a tribute to spungo [Razz]

Wouldn't the paperwork of having to pay someone 24 cents for drawing a dozen shep cost more than 24 cents, or did they use amazons turk to do this as well?

All through Mechanical Turk. Plus how many of us can say our "art" has been exhibited world-wide?

Japan Media Arts Festival, Tokyo, Japan
Apex Gallery, New York, USA
ElectroFringe, New Castle, Australia
Media Art Friesland, The Netherlands

Edit - Actually, I thought it was to test a web drawing widget when I did it.

Funny...there was an article on /. yesterday about MTurk, which I forwarded to a friend, as we'd discussed it on Friday. I read about the sheep thing, and naturally my thoughts drifted a bit north...and here we have more on the matter.
