New Topic: Propaganda Art

I hope everyone's finals are going well! Hang in there, it's almost over.

We had some great entries for this last topic, but it was clearly less popular than the first one. From the people I (and the other admins) have talked to, it seems that most people where just not all that into drawing Foreigners as Fruit. The same sentiment seems to be reflected in regards to the most recent poll winner "balloons in strange places." So, we have decided to do away with the poll since it seems to somehow promote topics that no one wants to draw. Instead, the admins will talk to each other and the participating artists to decide the new topics.

So, the new topic that significantly more people seem excited about is: Propaganda art!
Go ahead, promote yourself as a scary dictator, make me want cupcakes, or show support for the teddy bear uprising. Whatever you want.

Obviously we don't expect anyone to submit anything this week, so this one has an extended deadline. You have until June 14th to complete your propaganda art. That's 2 weeks after the end of the quarter. That should give everyone time to get home and settle in.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this one! Good luck!

Still Life with Right Side Up Upside Down Pineapples and Flies on Fruit Halves

Doodled in tribute to the Australian Umbilical Brothers and their top notch Upside Down Show. They certainly are the sweetest couple of ham sandwiches I've ever seen! Oh and hey David; you win the lemon!

An homage to a tele-novella-ish episode of LOST. In this version the role of Richard Alpert (the unaging Spanish castaway with natural guyliner) will be played by a navel orange wearing a pair of googly eyes, sharpie marker brows and craft foam beard.

May 3rd: Foreigners as Fruit

Great job and great turn out on the sea monsters everyone. Fantastic work!

The poll results are in, and the new challenge for the next two weeks is "Foreigners as Fruit." Interpret that as you see fit. Submissions are due May 17th.

In addition to this challenge we are going to host a second challenge: design the sketch frolic blog banner. Everyone has FIVE weeks to complete this challenge to give you guys plenty of time to come up with some fun ideas. I know that runs right into finals so you'll have the first week of june to get your submission in after finals (and graduation) are over.

Dimensions for the banner are: Width = 740 pixels, Height = under 200 pixels. 72 dpi

Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with :D

If we haven't added it within a week or so, please contact one of the admins. (Matt, Sean, Tom, or Lyle) Thank you.
