And so, this contest comes to a close. I had a bitchin time reading all of your entries (and looking at, and watching, and listening to recs) and I thank you for all of them. I also had a bitchin time tallying up everything. Geez. After all was said and done there were over 1600 individual points.
But the winners are: Traci D!!! Mia T!!! and Disturbinglynic!!!! I've emailed Traci and Mia, and DMed Nic on Twitter.
Traci D had a junk ton of entries, having sent lots of varied art. Here's a recent piece from her I loved:
There were a lot of other great videos and art, and funny penguin involved things, so I'm going to reserve them to showcase on the blog later on. Thanks so everyone who flexed creative muscle for this contest, and gave me great music/book recs, and oddly enough, new pick up lines. You guys are excellent.
