The good news is that I made it, completing an image every week according to the #illo52weeks themes for 2017 as well as the bonus Christmas image - and each one was done within the weekly time frame.
The not so good news is that there's lots of doubt over whether the Challenge will take place in 2018 - although a list of themes for 2018 has been released.
So here's my work for weekly themes 48 through to 52...
Week 48 was Africa. For this one I used ink only and a photographic reference of an animal from Southern African called a gemsbok, which is a type of antelope.
The theme for Week 49 was Purple, and as it was Advent, an Advent wreath seemed appropriate.
Week 50's theme was Window, and this one has echoes from a long running ABC-TV children's show that used windows to introduce adventures.
Shopping was the theme for Week 51, and I needed an idea that would make me smile. Maybe some of you will relate to one or other of the protagonists.
And for the lucky last for 2017, the theme was Celebration. Nothing quite beats the elation of welcoming a new member into the family.
And that's a wrap for 2017.
2018 has begun, may it provide all of the open doors and opportunities that 2017 sadly lacked.
