In March, I hosted a contest. The grand (and only) prize was an official, original, custom-made Mike Allegra doodle.
Despite my doodling ability, the number of people who entered this contest was pretty large. This surprised me.
What also surprised me was that some of you reeeeally wanted that ding-dang doodle. In fact, a few people threatened to sic their cats on me if I didn’t do another doodle contest post haste.
To these people I say settle down because here’s another chance to win a doodle!
IF YOU WIN, I WILL DRAW WHATEVER YOU WANT!
Don’t believe me? Here’s proof:
Jenion (the winner of the March contest) wanted a drawing of a bicycle racer. So I drew her a bicycle racer.
Then Jilanne Hoffmann’s punk kid asked for a drawing of a kitten. So I drew him a kitten.
Did I mention that Jilanne Hoffmann’s kid is a punk? Well, he is.
So, yes, I will doodle whatever you want.
Well there is one caveat: I will not draw whatever you want if your wanted whatever is perverted. I am a children’s book author; behave yourself!
HOW TO WIN
The winning name will be drawn from a hat. The fellow drawing the name will be this guy.
He is fair, impartial, and looks like a 19th century bare-knuckled pugilist.
HOW TO ENTER
To get your name in the hat, all you need to do is leave a comment with some Words of Wisdom.
To get the ball rolling, here are some actual Words of Wisdom from my parents:
Mom: “Don’t be a candy ass.”
Dad: “The ox is slow but the Earth is patient.”
Mom’s wisdom usually came in the form of vague threats.
Dad’s wisdom usually sounded like its was written by a Confucius in need of a designated driver.
You can do better than this. I know you can. I’m counting on you.
HOW TO INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING
I’ll add two more ballots to the hat if you announce this contest on your blog and link back to this page. So, yes, you can get three chances to win!
Don’t have a blog? OK, then you can get one extra ballot if you announce this contest (and link back to this page) on your Facebook page or Twitter feed.
Your Words of Wisdom are due on or before Monday, July 21.
The winner of the drawing will be announced on July 22.
The completed doodle will be posted on my blog. The original drawing (suitable for framing) will be mailed to the winner.
Also, cheaters will be stabbed.
So get going! I need all the Words of Wisdom I can get!
