Art Contest Update - Definite Delays :(

Well, as is often the case...Murphy's Law applies. No, not the one about a Smith & Wesson beating Four Aces, but you get the idea.

I'll be out of town on business related matters until the end of July. That means, even if folks send submissions in, I won't be able to review them, much less post them.

So, basically...the contest deadline is being moved to 10 August. At that time I will post all entries in the order they show up in my inbox (thrandrall[at]gmail.com) and then proceed to choose the winners...followed by a week of viewer voting for the fan favorite. The upside of this is that the contest is now worth a total of $400. $200 for first, $125 for second, and $75 for third. With an additional $100 for the viewer's choice.

Additionally, I can promise all of you out there a flood of brand, spanking new commissions when I return - most of which have not been previously posted anywhere...so at least you've got something to look forward to.

I eagerly and sincerely await all your contest entries - and look forward to exhibiting them to the community.

Art Contest Update - Potential Delays

Well, as was posited at the time of the initial announcement, real life does have a way of intruding in our fantasies.

I won't know for certain until tomorrow, but it does look as though I may need to postpone the contest conclusion for at least a month. Not having access to a computer or this account in particular does limit what one can do in that regard...in which case, the deadline for entries would also be extended by an equal amount of time.

Stay tuned for details.
