In keeping with the tradition of Halloween, or perhaps the election year.

The theme for contest #7 is: "Oooo...Scarey"

The prize for this contest is $100. It's important that you have a Paypal account, so if you don't already have one please make preparations. Additionally as a bonus we have an as-yet unannounced extra offered by the good folks with Animation Magazine, and yes, there'll also be an AnimationNation.com t-shirt and a box of blue or red Col-Erase pencils.


Send your entries to me at anim8or @ adelphia dot net and please be sure that your email originates from the same address that you subscribed to the Independant Economy with. Failure to do so will delay our ability to confirm your eligibility to participate.

If you have any questions just let me know and I'll do my best to respond promptly.

Submissions can begin immediately with the deadline for final submissions being midnight, Saturday, October 23rd. Voting will take place for the following week with the winner being revealed Monday November 1st.


Oops, my bad on the contest number [Razz]

I wonder how many entries will have the theme of George Duh-bya Bush winning another 4 years?

I wonder how many will come with a paragraph describing what you are supposed to be looking at?

I think (in fact I know ) that Offbeat is not eligible this time, due to his triumph in one of the earlier contests ("think of the children"), and that he becomes eligible two day after the deadline for #7.

I have a terrible history of goofing up emails. Will there be any way to confirm our entries are in before the deadline has passed? I'm 95% sure I did it right, but it's that 5% getting loud sometimes that gets me...

Don't worry G, if you write a lyrical descriptive paragraph to go with mine describing the socio-political-economic undertones, that I didn't have the skill to show graphically and I win.....

I'll buy you some chicken....and a prolapsating(sp?) ass toy.

Is there some connection between the toy and the chicken? (backs slowly to the door)

Eric suggested we include a paragraph describing what you're supposed to be looking at--d'you think it's too late to submit that??

Eric was making fun of the inclusion of text to explain what you are looking at.
If you can't tell, or can't write it in as part of the design, why bother?

Thanks Eric, I actually got that, I was just having further fun with it in a moment of boredom. Mabye you're having fun with me over that, at my expense, which is cool.

I tell ya, being made fun of by an adult is a lot more fun that being made fun of by high school kids, which I do all day.

Thanks for the fun. [cheers]

I prefer grade school students. When the hormones hit, kids are a mess....all the way up until around 30. [Wink]

I honestly have no idea what I was thinking when I pursued this profession 10 years ago [Big Grin] It's all worked out pretty well, however, and because of my current position I got to go to a lightfoot ltd seminar a couple of years ago and get some guidance on a dream I had hidden years ago.

Yeah, well, some of us were not born drawing perfect Mickeys, though I know of some whe were. [Big Grin]
But we can make up for it as long as we don't suck too bad and have ideas and a little smattering of vision. I was having no fun in college until I fell back in love with animation. I only wish all the information that is available now was available then....so I could be better travelled and more bitter and cynical by now.

(we're pretty far off topic by now, but whateva)

In my case I had to get out of self destruct mode before I could be of any use to anyone at all and get back to college. Even then it took some time for my brain to be of any use to me.

I don't believe anything's wasted, however. On a whim today I got my juniors divided up into groups to do a graphic novel treatment of Of Mice and Men. Having taken my first life drawing class last spring (aaah, my first art class ever) I got to give them a quick run through of how to draw the head and figure, then I pulled up a desk and drew my own piece. Came out not bad, and they are (most of them) doing pretty good with theirs also.

First off, I would just like to take a second to apologize to all of you who have taken time out of your schedules and contributed to this latest contest. I admit I've been a bit tardy in getting those pictures up in a timely matter. But not to fear, I will be posting them up between 8-9 PST tonight, depending upon how long my commute is due to the rain.

Here's the latest update on Contest #7.

There's a rain storm rolling through the Los Angeles area and whenever this happens, it causes a lot problems on the streets and freeways.

Tom won't be able to get to his computer this evening as he has a long commute and the weather is preventing him from getting home.

We'll postpone the start of the Contest for one more day so Thomas can get through this inconvenience. Thanks everyone for your patience. I've been reassured by Tom that there will be 2 votes available to cast for your favorites on this Contest #7. There will still be a full one week voting period.

Good luck to everyone.
