Jim Rugg and AdHouse Books are hosting an art contest — Objet d’Afro — to help promote the recently released (and very awesome) graphic novel Afrodisiac. Here are the details, from AdHouse’s blog:
Objet d’Afro highlights the obvious awesomeness of everyone’s favorite superhero, the Afrodisiac.
Here’s what we want – post a picture on our Flickr group of an Afrodisiac art thing…you pick the medium…you pick the everything. All mediums of art; whether it be painting, graphic art, sculpting, drawing, sketching, fake ads, short strips, or gluing an afro on a Ken doll. All categories are welcome, as are entrants from all countries….whatever…go nuts. If you don’t have a Flickr account, send us the picture…or the art thing…and we’ll post it for you.
We’ll have some awesome prizes for the king of the long shoe (art) game.
King Daddy: a piece of original art featuring Afrodisiac vs Dragonfly
Poppa-stoppa: a deluxe edition of the Afrodisiac and a signed copy of the Street Angel trade paperback
Cigarette Pimp: a signed copy of Afrodisiac
Honorable mention(s) will receive a signed Afrodisiac print.
The contest will run from now (get going) through the end of March. Winners will be named by April 15, 2010.
You can find the Flickr group right here; even if you don’t plan on contributing, it should be fun to check back later and see what everyone else comes up with.
