Are you sure what side of the glass you are on
I'm glad folks are so enthusiastic about the art contest. I really should have done something like this sooner!
Claire and I did our best to come up with something that could involve as many of Sam and Fuzzy's readers as possible. We didn't want to exclude people who aren't the most capable artists, which is why we've got the award for the most original idea. But at the same time, I wanted to see some really bad-ass artistry, which is why we've got the most impressive artwork award. (Also, because some people asked... this contest is open to everyone, regardless of where you live. I'll mail the prize anywhere.)
There are already several entries posted, which is great! But of course, there's no mad rush. The contest runs for three weeks, after all. Plenty of time!
