Wallpaper Contest

Okay…here’s a very silly idea, but what the heck. People keep suggesting silly contests. Thinking of offering some free wallpapers for downloads, and I’m not that good at design. Also, I have 24 author copies, and even after I give them to all my relatives and donate a couple to libraries, I’m suspect I’m still gonna be sitting on a pile, unless I start selling them at cons or something.

So! Here’s your chance, gang! Win a free signed author’s copy of Nurk! Make a wallpaper out of one of my paintings/comics/whatever, slice and dice at will, and submit it here before…um….let’s say Friday, Friday the 25th is a nice date. First place gets a signed author’s copy, second and third (and/or more, depending on whether I’m overwhelmed with uber-awesome entries) gets a signed print of the cover art for Nurk. The wallpapers in question will be put up on the new metalandmagic.com (whenever it comes into being) for download, with appropriate credit given to the winner (actually, if you could put that on the wallpaper, that’d be even better!)

It can be pretty much anything related to a project of mine–Digger, Elf vs. Orc, Little Creature, random painting–don’t care, have fun, I’m more interested in cool visual design than anything in particular.

With my usual total lack of planning for any kind of response, I’ll probably judge these myself, unless I wind up with some ridiculously high number, in which case I may go to voting, or just rope my long-suffering friends into helping me.

Just make sure the www.metalandmagic.com bit is somewhere on the wallpaper, and we’re all good! E-mail submissions in jpg format to ursulav (at) metalandmagic.com with the subject “Wallpaper Contest” or just send a link to it somewhere else–DA, wherever–and….um…I hope this isn’t a totally absurd idea…


You may submit as many entries as you like.

Make it the big size. You know, the 1024 x thingy or bigger–we can always scale down.

You may post these in your own galleries, no problem, just mention me somewhere, and we’re all good…
