Let’s Paws for a Contest!

Meowsic CatMy first month and I’m already straying from the format — wait— do I have a format???

I need help. I’ll tell you my tail and then, please share this with all the young, starving sharp, creative folks that you know.

Look to the right. Do you know her? Her name is Meowsic Cat. She’s a character of mine and we sell her on shirts, bags,etc., printed and embroidered. She has quite a following. She’s just purrfect!

Clearly, she’s a musical cat. Her whole self is in the shape of a treble clef. Though I’m good at a LOT of things, this kind of out-of-your-brain design, doesn’t come easily to me. But when my sister asked me to design a musical cat, well, Meowsic Cat was a natural (that’s for you, Laurie!)

bass clefNow I’m being hounded to design a dog. We know a LOT about this dog. We know his name, his sex, we know that he’s associated with a bass clef (look to the left.) What we don’t know, is what the little guy looks like!

I just couldn’t master thinking out-of-the-box enough. I felt like a heel. My design has musical elements, and does utilize a bass clef, but I just haven’t hit on the perfect design. All my efforts fell flat. I was licked.

So, here’s my challenge to you, gentle reader, show us what our musical dog looks like. Send your design ideas to me at sj@essjay.us. If we choose your design, or the main part of your design, we will give you a cash prize — $200. You will give us all rights to him forever and ever. Your name will be published on this here blog. We’ll make him famous.

Everyone who submits a design, along with the attached rules and release, filled out and digitally signed, will be entered in a drawing to receive a $25 cash prize. This form must be filled out in Adobe Reader 8.0 or above. Adobe Reader is available as a free download. You may submit more than one entry but each entry must be sent in a separate e-mail and each entry must be accompanied by a signed release.
