For promotional purposes, Im having a drawing. I need to garner votes for my 10K DBH entry. Made it to the Final Round.

Votes have been reset for the final round, so if you voted last week, you can vote again.

somewhereelse.com LINK TO VOTE...

If you go VOTE and COMMENT, you will be put in a drawing for 3 original sketches on 11x14 paper. One person will get all three.

I know I'm not famous so it might not be worth anything to anyone, but you can write your grocery list on it, and it will be the most awesome grocery list ever. You can burn it if you want, all combined they represent many hours of my life. An excellent allegory of the meaninglessness of art and life it would be...





Also try to convince Layne to print any of these designs so I can get more exposure. (This week preferably...)

These have been freeD from design prison!!!

    "That crow is awesome."

    +1

    Hell, they're ALL awesome. Jimmy's in a class by himself. I voted but left no comment, and won't. I voted because I love the design and that's enough for me. I envy whoever gets the prize, though.

    You ever thought about just selling your sketches on eBay, Jimmy? Not these, but any in the future? I'd be more than happy to bid on them and I'm sure others would, too.

    Good luck in the contest, you've got some stiff competition. There are three designs including your own that look like possible winners. I don't consider you an underdog by any means but I do consider you the hardest working man in the tshirt design business judging by your output. You're the James Brown (jimibro) of the tshirt world. Seriously, good luck. I'm rooting for ya.

    I like the second pencil sketch and if that was done up to be printed, I would buy that.

    Geez... I just voted yesterday or something like that for the DBH shirt. So I have to do it again? :)

    Congrats and good luck!

    Did you use burn/dodge for your 10k finalist entry? If so, that's just amazing.

    Theo: Yes, only when in grayscale to accentuate shadows/highlights. Also used gradients of black fills to darken areas.

    thanks for all the votes and support, and pat on backs.

    its actually been a really awesome experience, so many people rooting for me, etc. really very... i dont know.. the word... very affirming for my identity. :)

    anyways... just wanted to show you guys the inside joke i uploaded to DBH.

    when i uploaded the hi-res version so they could make screens from them, i had this on the top photoshop layer.

    always makin jokes jimmy! arent you ever serious?!?!?!?



    ------ anyways, ill probably come up with more ways to say thanks to the online community for their help. maybe some more giveaways of sketches, etc.

    this set of sketches was won by AttilatheMom.

    anyways. Thanks!

    Fourth place? That ain't right. Mathiole got robbed, too. If it's any consolation they had your shirt on the home page for a long time and that's got to help sales. I imagine it's hard to compete against the BRC and their built-in advantage for gathering votes. Still, great shirt and I'll own it soon.
