Where did the theme of turtles come from? The answer is, no one knows. The pictures theme started more than eight years ago, and has worked it into our logo and promotional stuff. Our back-issues show what artists have done with the theme, including turtles playing chess, a turtle attacking a city, and "Whistler's Turtle." We like turtles. We think they are photogenic, so we'll probably keep it up. Send in your turtle photos and drawings, and we will post them or use them in the magazine.
