The Sheep Market, or “What happens when you ask 10,000 online workers — some of whom have clearly never seen a sheep — to draw a sheep.”

Actually, a couple of them, like #2824 and #8984, are pretty good. But lordy, most of ‘em are terrible. #3062 is clearly a lion. Also: Dear #6341, they said “left.”

The whole thing kind of reminds me of an exchange from Firefly:

INARA
What is this? A duck?

KAYLEE
That’s a swan. And I like it.

INARA
You do?

KAYLEE
It looks like it was made with, you know… longing. Made by a person really longed to see a swan.

INARA
Perhaps because they’d only heard of them by rough description.

God, I am so reassured about my utter lack of drawing ability. I mean, some of these look drawn with feet rather than hands (not to disparage Daniel Day-Lewis).
