Since my skills as an artist are kind of regrettable, I very
much like this idea & would like to second it, or whatever.
Doing something by degrees makes it a lot less daunting, &
if I managed to muck something up, it would be my own copy only,
(a feature difficult to replicate with physical artworks :-).
Besides that, mucking something up is a lesson in itself, both
to warn others & because someone else might be able to imagine
a way to make the original idea work.
I think dumping the results on a Wiki would be helpful, also,
both to make fetching a starting-point relatively simple, & to
keep a kind of history of what various people have tried. The
history is also useful for both inspiration & correction. (-:
