OK, I have six weeks before the El Corazon submission deadline, so I don't really have time to dawdle, particularly if the piece I design requires more than applying paint to canvas.

Last night, I Googled "weird musical instruments" (warning: some of the images are NSFW), and checked eBay for pieces and parts, and started doing little doodles. I'm sort of digging the heart-shaped guitar/ukulele thing with wind chimes hanging off it, so I'm doing to keep doodling in that direction. I also like some of the images in the Google search that show massive guitar bodies with regular sized necks, so that might be something.

So, I'm not quite there yet, but I'm definitely feeling a glimmer of inspiration that wasn't there yesterday.
