Birth of a Goddess

Some of my readers (all four of you) are members of MMarioKKnits, a list for obtaining and occasionally test-knitting the designs of the multi-talented MMario. We want a design for the upcoming release of the pattern "Artemis", a sort of logo that can be put on tees, totes, etc., and also used for a button for the Artemis Beta-Knitting KAL. I am picturing an elegant depiction of Artemis in her guise as moon goddess, with predominant colors of silver, purple and deep twilight blues. If you can work knitting into the design but still have it true to the moon goddess theme, fine. It’s not a deal breaker.

N.B. Input from MMario: "I see 'Artemis' "riding sidesaddle" on a crescent moon, a star between the two horns of the moon holding a skein of yarn from which she is knitting."

Since I can’t draw a believable stick person, I’m opening this up to all of you, and anyone else you think might be interested. Through the end of the month, designs may be submitted to me at artemis06 *at*

Terms: your ORIGINAL full-color design should be 8.5x11 sized at 300 dpi. Portrait or landscape orientation is fine. The winner will receive his or her choice of a tote or tee, and some yet-to-be-determined yarn. In exchange, the design will become the property of Artemis Imaging to use for reproduction on any of the items I carry, which will be made available to KAL members. And anyone else with sufficient dinero.

I'm not easily impressed....but you can try. :-)

Diana, thank you very very much for running with this (of course, what else is the archery Goddess supposed to do?) - count me in for a first purchase - I shall be ecstatic to have any of your creations with this design - woohoo!

Here's hoping we get some nice designs from which I may choose! Feel free to spread the word to any one you like.
