# well, very nearly true
though it was something like the 4th image posted to the challenge. it had a profound impact in shaping people's approach to this challenge, stretching the boundaries of "colouring the lizard" to include a bold mixture of psychedelia, popular culture and cutting satire, and i don't think it's too much to declare that the undoubted success of this challenge - for there have been numerous successes - can be traced almost entirely and directly to this image.

# good lord
i never even entered it into the challenge! i must say, that rather takes the wind out of my "it never even made the fucking popular page on the first day!!!" rant. one feels rather... foolish now.

i think i shall enter it forthwith. an image of such seminal importance should not go ignored.

# as well you should
an image of such seminal importance is sure to attract many detractors -- consider, for example, the adverse reaction to williams' "a study of tractors" enacted in marbles, or cohen-aspidistra's daring "contracts and retractions through the medium of cataracts" -- but there will always be those of discerning taste and it is apparent that you are one such

There's "The Blue Girl"; "Whistler's Father"; and "The Embarrassed Fart", although important works they are generally overlooked by the gawking masses.
