Maybe this is impossible from within this format.  It could be friggin' cool, though.  And I said it earlier: it would make a great book if it's done right and well.  See what you think:

So, I've titled each of the entries for the book (listed below by chapter).  The titles are getting a little more creative as I go, and I got thinking about this and how we all did the Wall in my old classroom (so perfectly compiled by the Brown sisters, by the way).  So let's put it all together.  We could do an illustration/cartoon for each chapter title and pair each a single-sentence caption encapsulating that particular chapter.

Chapter 1: The Salinas Valley
Chapter 2: Introducing the Hamiltons and Our Gods (not exactly the same people)
Chapter 3: Cyrus, the Trasks, and Sexism and The Fall of Gods

Okay, so if we do this, or if someone wants to just take off and get started, let's set a couple standards:
  1. The work must be original.
  2. Compose the piece within a square--you know, so there can be a uniform format without ever having the crop some of your hard work.
  3. You automatically give me permission to post the work on the blog, but all credit will go to you, the artist/illustrator.
