As many predicted, the judging for this contest was far from easy. All the quality submissions made it hard to choose.
And now . . . without further adieu . . . our monster judge (ghoulish drumroll) Mr. Stefan Bucher:
Miss Congeniality: Mark Harris
Let me sum this up succinctly: Jesus H. Christ! This is a scary-ass post-it! I think it’s because this one’s got an outie.
3rd Prize: Matthew LaFleur
I do believe that the hybridization of lobsters and octopi will lead to the downfall of humanity. And just because the pundits say that horizontal blinds will protect us doesn’t mean it’s true. (Extra credit for the very menacing little “hello.”)
2nd Prize: Matthew LaFleur
Again, there is so much here: The Rorschach, the whiteout eyes and teeth, the excellent detailing on the speech bubble, the fine work on the face, and just the idea that your Jamiroquai hat could turn on you at any moment… I love it!
1st Price (not a typo, but in honor of Vincent): Jacob Saariaho
It’s got everything! A scary graveyard, ghoulish type, dramatic lighting, and a zombie breaking free of the bonds of hell! What can I say? I’m a classicist.
But all the pieces were so excellent, so I gave everybody an award. Please see the stickies on this PDF.
So there you have it. Thank you all for participating. For those of you who think they got robbed, at least you kept your soul.
Stay tuned for another shot at doodle bragging rights this month, brought to you by the awesome folks at Sharpie®.
