We’re up to Day 13 in the Acorn Island adventure game over on my Twitter stream. The players have (finally) got ’round to opening the door of the hut, to be presented with the scene of a bear, asleep in an armchair. There is a painting of a cargo ship on the wall, titled “The Last Voyage of the Saucy Seagull”. Who is that on the ship? That’s a very fancy clock. And who are in those pictures on the mantelpiece? What if the bear wakes up?
Questions, to be answered. You can take part here:
Most people chose to ask a seagull. I’ve no idea why. Here is the gull, and it thinks you should use the door. Here’s the link to the Twitter game. Go and play along:
We conducted a poll on ‘How would you get into a hut’ and our survey said:
It’s good to know that the player’s of my Acorn Island Twitter game don’t like to do things in the usual way, although I wouldn’t necessarily trust a seagull myself. Obviously, if you want to play along you’re more than welcome to clamber down the chimney, or even use the door.

This is all part of my Inktober offering. It’s also a game, using Twitter’s handy polls. The link is here:

Would you eat a living breathing gudgeon? Especially to save the feelings of a friendly Walrus? Well, would you?
Here is today’s exciting instalment of my Inktober game (follow the link to the tweet, and see the poll below the picture:
Here is today’s Acorn Island instalment. You can vote on what happens next in this Twitter poll:
Day 3 of the ‘Acorn Island’ Twitter game. I was a little disappointed that the vote went against finding out more about Timothy 2 Cans life at sea, but I managed to sneak a nautical reference into today’s drawing.
If you’re not aware of what this is all about, ‘Acorn Island’ is an Inktober project where I post a drawing on Twitter every day of October. People can then vote on what happens next, and so influence the next day’s drawing. It’s a game! Below is today’s (Day 3) poll, maybe you’d like to join in:
Oh, and Inktober is an online festival of drawing, which anyone can get involved with. Simply draw something (preferably with ink, I’d say) and post it somewhere online (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc) with the hashtag #inktober2017
The people voted and so instead of chasing after the bear into a strange forest, they decided to talk to the startled toucan. Below’s drawing is of what he had to say. If you want to join in the game, here’s a link to today’s Twitter poll:
