Our Calgary Artist Challenge IX judge, Chip Zdarsky has made his picks for the top three challengers!
Congratulations to the winners!
1. Caanan Grall
2. Nick Johnson
CAM HAYDEN: Excellent use of stippling. VERY erotic depictions of ducks.
JARET MURPHY: I’m stealing this idea. Love, Chip.
NICK JOHNSON: You’ve wonderfully captured the life of a private investigator. Also, my life.
STEVEN CHARLES ROSIA: I want to adopt that duck and I want to eat that pig. Bravo!
CAANAN GRALL: You read the comic! And drew an amazing Gatherer. This is beautiful. YOU are beautiful.
ANNA: You have perfectly summed up the 80s with this. Amazing.
ROBERTO DUQUE: I legally cannot respond to this (but it’s great)
DARREN LA ROSE: A duck of mystery! I like it.
MARK MATCHEM: I love it. I’m picturing that the cover is all of them posing at a SEARS portrait studio.
I just want everyone to know that you’re ALL winners, except for everyone who lost.
FIRST PLACE: Caanan Grall.
SECOND PLACE: Nick Johnson
THIRD PLACE: Anna
This was the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make (my life is pretty easy)
Thanks to Chip Zdarsky and all of the challengers! See everyone’s art here.
