i'd like to thank the academy..

An Arte y Pico award for me? Well, this is cool even though I'm not sure I'm deserving of much of anything other than congrats for no longer boring the people at work with my weird stories because I write and draw them here. Nevertheless, thanks so much for thinking of me fairlane. I'll try to remain worthy for at least a little while longer. Now for the best part - getting to mention my choices (only 5?) but first the rules:

“Arte y Pico” is part of a tag initiative that is passed along to compliment other bloggers.

Now, here are the rules and regulations, as well as my nominees for the next five deserving winners of the Arte y Pico Award:

1) Pick five (5) blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.

2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award which is here Arte y Pico.

missed but not forgotten, Scarlet.

the beauteous and talented, Sera.

remarkable poesy, sports and political melange from Randal

pictures to melt your heart by the Cunning Runt.

and finally a matched pair who enhance one another's best qualities Mathman and Dcup.


  1. Wow! I am honored. Thank you.

  2. You dear woman! Thank you, for remembering me and for honoring me. I'll definitely post this with pride.

  3. dcup and mathman - It was and continues to be a pleasure.

    fairlane - four sure!

    zee - One of these days I'll make up my own award and you will be at the top of my list.

    scarlet - De nada, GF.

  4. **stands, applauds and whistles**

  5. spartacus - "Bows and runs offstage.."

  6. To foster goodwill among the nations, I will give my speech en français:


    Now I have to find someone who doesn't have one of these! Are there five? Some of you might be getting a second one!

  7. rg - They do tend to proliferate, n'est pas?.. but I still think it's cool. One day I may make up one of my own.

  8. Susan, you are so very kind. But as I am a total spaz, I am unable to play this game.

    I mean, I wish I could, it looks like fun, but... I struggle with email.

    Oh, but if I can remember how to do it, you're linked!

  9. cr - I'm no computer whiz either but I have a husband who showed me how to post a sidebar picture when someone I liked gave me a virtual award. It's all a bit easier now but I prefer the simpler approach myself. Mostly, I hoped that the few people who visit here and don't know your blog might be inclined to visit themselves.

  10. I am so glad that you got Cunning Runt.

    It was hard to pick just 5! And I picked DCup but you had already chosen her, so she got a double and so well deserved!

  11. fran - So happy you came by. Yes, cr's stuff is very special and I hope he's able to post his well deserved award. Is it okay if I link to your blog?

  12. ::::::applause::::::::

    I came by to thank you for your kind comment on my post at The Peace Tree.

    And I'm delighted to have finally made it over here. It's not out of lack of interest, as I've loved the sketches that you've featured at Politits, just that there is not enough time to read all the blogs I've bookmarked since my first post in February.

    And congrats on the Arte y Pico Award. I share your fondness for CR's photos, by the way.

    For CR and your other honored blogs:

    as well!
