I was involved in the contest being held by the very talented
-3-, creator of experiMental Theatre and actually managed to win the contest. After some thought about what I wanted I got in touch with -3- and asked if it would be appropriate for me to send him a handful of pictures of myself and let him go where his creativity took him. After a few more back-and-forth exchanges between us about color vs b/w and other aspects, this was the final piece I received from him. It's quite possibly the greatest thing I have ever won in a contest before.

Firstly: Congrats!

Secondly: I just archive binged this comic, and I really like it. It's like A Softer World except I'm actually laughing.

@Unka John & gordebak

Thank you, gentlemen. The exact reason I wanted to give him free range over the prize was because I knew he'd come up with something much better than what I could have thought up for him to make.

@DSW -- "It's like A Softer World except I'm actually laughing."

I've been compared to A Softer World before, but this is the first time I wasn't slightly insulted by it*. Thanks for reading and subscribing to me.

*It should be noted, though, that I often read ASW and really enjoy it.

Print and frame this.

I fully intend to Micheal. I found a company nearby that will print it onto high quality canvas, but it's $200+ for the service. I'm thinking I'll get an 8x10 for the time being and save some money up for something a little nicer.

Oh, nice. You're giving them a much better look than i was.

Might i suggest zazzle.com for doing your print? The full 24"x30" version should print on high quality, heavy weight glossy paper stock for under $25, and if you're setting something up for the first time, you'll probably get a 50% off coupon in the email from them not long after signing up.
You can also print on museum quality canvas, rated for 100 years, for well under $100. I used them to print the C'thul-Whu? pic you've seen and the results were excellent.
I highly recommend them for setting up things to print for yourself. (As far as having any product control for selling to other, they blow sticky wet chunks - but for your own prints, i had zero complaints)

Thanks for pointing me to Zazzle, that's a big help. The only complaint I have about it(and it's a small one) is the way they have the price for sizes jump, instead of gradually increasing as the size increases. Basically, 24x30 causes the print to be in the second to largest size category, a $179 venture; whereas reducing the size to 23x28.75 bumps it down a size category, and the price to go down to less than half that. Zazzle looks alright for one shot things like this.


Thought, I don't think I'd want to do any serious business with them(meaning I wouldn't expect any GoF merch to be seen on Zazzle).

Oops. Yeah, i find that to be brutal, too.
I ran into similar problem when doing C'thul-Whu? Looking at the final now, i see i kept it to a 23" width. I had been thinking it was the height i had to trim down.

I can modify it for you if you wish.
