Halloween Art Contest, Sponsored by MOO!

At long last, October is upon us! And what better way to celebrate my favorite month of the year, than with a HALLOWEEN ART CONTEST!?

Yours truly is teaming up with the printing gurus at MOO for a spooktacular promotional competition. Entry is simple. All you need to do is create an original piece of Halloween-themed artwork (skulls, bats, pumpkins, spiderwebs... you know the drill). Then email your eerie work of art to hiredmeat@gmail.com. Size and medium are entirely up to you. Illustrators, designers, fine artists, photographers -- all are welcome!

Entries will be accepted until midnight on Friday, October 26. After that, a panel of independent judges will choose 3 winners from the bunch. Each lucky & talented winner will receive complimentary printing from MOO and art goodies from me, including:

- One set of 25 MOO Holiday Cards
- A set of three limited edition art prints (see below)
- My latest pair of collectible postcard prints


So go ahead and get those pencils, pens, paintbrushes & styluses moving! Feel free to play with the Halloween theme... go creepy or cute, blood-curdling or comedic. The only real rules are 1) have fun, and 2) make sure your submission is "Halloween-y."

The Gory Details:
- All entries must be received by midnight, the night of October 17, 2012.
- Please submit artwork as low-resolution JPEGs or PDFs -- 72dpi, RGB, longest side no larger than 1200px.
- Judges will review submissions on October 18 & announce winners on Wednesday, October 31.
- DO NOT submit works featuring trademarked characters.
