We have a Winnah!

The winner was chosen by a thoroughly random process: writing the names on pieces of paper that folded to about 1cm x 1cm, placing those pieces in my special studio-only coffee mug, shaking the mug, handing the mug to Sweet Enemy and having her shake the mug, then having SE dump the pieces onto my desk, closing her eyes, picking one piece out and holding it up for me to take.

The winner is:

Mike (who has no blog).

As soon as Mike gets in contact with me, we'll get the ball rolling.

In other art news, I spent nearly all of Saturday pencilling this year's Twenty-Four Hour Comics Day poster. It's awesome so far, if I do say so myself (and I do). It's all hand-lettered, too. Though, I just noticed that I lettered COMIC DAY rather than COMICS DAY. Well, it's not inked, yet!

There will be two versions, an inked version and a color version where I'll ink the type and SE will do the rest fully-painted. The full-color one will be raffled off with the proceeds benefiting the local food shelf. I'll post images as they are available.

The only art I've done is the poster, but here's some OLLLLLLLLLD art for you. I don't know my age, but I'm guessing about seven or eight. The original is 14" x 17" and I'll leave it to you to guess what it depicts.

Arkenbey: I just had a look at your site and I must say you do excellent work,very expressive. Your Space 1999 eagles are particularly brilliant ;)

@arjan: I hope I live up to your expectations. and yes on the store

@snab: actually, we rarely collaborate, but when we do... POW!

@Nydia: Keep checking there might be another, or I may start offering cheapo commissions.

@Warren: Ha! They are my finest work ;)
Did you hit my modeling blog? I'd be interested in your opinions and feedback.
