First Gabooldra Naming Workshop

I have received hundreds of letters, emails, and phone calls from people who would like me to conduct an "online workshop" teaching naming techniques. I have hesitated to do so because so little of what I do can be taught. My abilities are a gift. I feel what I do. But you've persisted in your request, so I'll relent.  I'll will teach you what little there is of naming that is teachable. 

DIRECTIONS OF THE "ONLINE WORKSHOP"

 1. Look at the drawings below to get a sense of the soul of each subject. 

2. Suggest a name that you feel fits each subject on the Gabooldra facebook page or in the comments section below. 

3. Verify that the names result in ZERO www.google.com matches. Putting the name in quote marks (ex. "Slyxocia") ensures correct findings. 

4. I will provide feedback. Keep in mind There is only one correct name for each of these drawn subjects. None of you will likely get it right. Some, however, may come close.

RULES OF THE WORKSHOP 

1.This first workshop will be free of charge, aside from any charges you personally may incur from your internet provider as this is an "online-workshop." Business is doing very well (as usual), and I can afford it. Furthermore, there is likely some way that my acquaintance at H&R Block can write this off as charity on my taxes. 

2. The workshop will be conducted online via Facebook and this blog. It will end promptly at 10PM on the night of Wednesday, February 1st. Workshop goers seeking feedback after that point will be S.O.O.L. 

3. I reserve the right to comment very little on your naming progress if I think your naming progress is lacking. I also reserve the right to take a while to provide feedback if I am busy with other things. My assistant may leave the feedback. 

BEHIND MY PEDAGOGY

I am beginning with drawings I have drawn because they are easiest for you to work from. Why? These drawings already have funnelled through my feeling processes and out through my pointer and thumb. I have taken what is most easily named from these subjects and presented it to you. 

In this beginning step, also have presented you with drawn images of adults. Why? Because babies and fetuses are too hard for you right now. They wear on their faces too little of themselves for, you, the novice, to work from. Yes, I could imbue some bits of their souls into my representational drawings, but the homogeny of their unformed faces makes this quite difficult and might require the use of paint, which I'm reticent to use because of the mess. 

Infant pets will be the hardest for you to name. I will explain why later.
