Neko Hakkei : Submissions Received ...

A view of the various submissions we have received so far ...

Note from Dave: In the introduction video to this project I mentioned that we would be putting the rough sketches onto the website for people to enjoy (and perhaps learn from). We have received fairly strong feedback from some participants (and from some non-participants) that this would not be a good idea.

A number of people have brought up the fear that their ideas would be plagiarized. And I myself have come to share this concern. Not so much that the ideas would be 'stolen', but that there would be the appearance of such behaviour. Because even in the earliest group of entries a number of people have indeed entered very similar drawings - similar to the point where I was convinced that they must have been showing each other their ideas.

So for the time being, please be patient with us while we hold back on publicly showing any of these sketches. I think that once we have moved into Stage Two, and have had direct communication with the designers, we may be able to do it more safely ...
