Face the Question Contest Winner (Finally!)

It seems to have taken me forever (because it did) but I finally selected a winner for my Face The Question Contest!

As you recall (if you have a good memory) I asked my loyal readers to add a face to this Question illustration:

So without further ado...the winner is "Pumquestion" from Eclectorama's Chunky B!

Okay, so it was timely when it was submitted back in October ;)
Great work CB! You win the Question ATC and two additional ATC cards of my choosing! Woot!

Second Place goes to groovy illustrator Brian Gubicza for this funky entry:

Great job Brian! I'll be sending you an ATC of my choosing for your second place win!

Third Place goes to Jersey lover Jay from The Sexy Armpit for this "serious" entry:

Great job Jay! I'll be sending you an ATC of my choosing for your third place win!

And finally I want to give a big "nice try" to my good friend Brian for this...umm..."effort."

Brian, you get NOTHING! Kidding - Great job other Brian! I'll be sending you an ATC of my choosing for your fourth place win!

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest (and by "everyone" I mean these guys, because they are the only people who entered the contest!)

Thanks guys. Your cards will be in the mail soon!

...and speaking of Zodac

I did this ATC for an 80s cartoon themed trade.

Art Imitates Life Imitates Art

Have you ever noticed those drug ads for pills with names that sound like something out of the old Masters of the Universe cartoons?





Yeah, well so did I. In fact, I've been joking with people for years about how the names they conjure up for these drugs sound like a graduating class from He-Man High School.

I even went so far as to design a few characters:

So imagine my surprise today to discover that someone has in fact made an allergy medicine and has actually used the name of an honest to God Masters of the Universe character!


...meet Zodac...

I did not make this up or photoshop that package, that is a real Hayfever medicine which appears to be available in Australia.

Am I the only one who finds this hilarious?
