Bob Hope Horror Contest (VOTE)

An offhand remark by ALL CAPS ANON about the vintage "Draw Bob Hope" ad that I posted the other day is responsible for this contest. Simply put: Draw Bob Hope--- but! Give him the THOIA treatment, and four of you rose to the challenge! I thank each and every clever one that entered, all of you proved once again that THOIA not only has the best readers of any blog around, but also the most talented and imaginative!

So let the voting begin! Simply view the submissions below and using the survey at the top of my blog (right hand column) click your favorite artist! The winner will be decided when the survey ends on Sunday night, August 23rd at 10pm... the winner gets a THOIA tee shirt, or something else horror related. Thanks again Mr. Cavin, Lily Strange, Jamieson, and JP Morgan.

Lily Strange said...

My competitors are all great. I'll think about it till my brain hurts and then pick a winner!

Thanks everyone, I was hoping for more submissions but I kind of added the contest at the last minute and now see clearly that alot of you just didn't even know about it. We'll do another DRAWING CONTEST in September for sure. Who's got a good suggestion?

Also, tell your friends--- VOTE!

Well, I'll sum up to the "I would've liked to submit something" people. It can't get better than Bob Hope! another contest won't be the same!

choosing who to vote for is going to be extremely difficult...

I laughed so hard, the tears flowed when I saw Jamieson's Bob Hope illustration.

What stood out, other than the wacky and ingenious humor of it, were the Iger Shop-esque eyes on his (or her) rendition of Bob Hope.

That is why I used to think Iger Shop was a single artist, because the style of the eyes are so distinct.

Anyway, a big mazel tov to Jamieson. By the way, my paternal grandmother's mother was a Jamieson. Perhaps there may be more to this. Who can say?

Great great entries, one and all! After much deliberation... I cast my vote! Good luck one and all!

Mr. Cavin said...

Daaang. Thanks everybody. I feel a little sheepish getting so many votes, since all of these entries are so very damn cool. I especially love the one by Ms. Strange. I thought the Bob of bacon and toast was surreal enough to be sublime.

Thanks to an excellent contest Karswell (and CAPS). I'm glad I didn't miss out on it.

Lily Strange said...

Thank you, Mr. Cavin. I was about to feed myself to Cthulhu in distress but you pulled me back from the brink.

Karswell said...

Morning everyone! I apologize for not updating last night after the contest ended but blogger was acting like a bug again and not allowing me to do anything. And as we can all see from the results, Mr C has indeed won! Congrats my friend! Now I do know for a fact that you aleady have a THOIA shirt so unless you want another one I will make plans to send you something else. And just because I loved all the entries so much, everyone who entered will receive a special consulation prize, so everyone email me their addresses pronto!

Thanks again to everyone who played and voted. More contests coming up in September, don't miss out--- you snooze you lose! (And I have an actual pre-code story post coming up here later this morning too... haven't forgot about that!)

My vote also went to Lily Strange, for her brilliant absurdity. But Mr. Cavin's 'Mask' is ingenius !

Other 'Learn How to Draw' ads could be used for future contests. There was that Tippy turtle ad, the famous artist dude smoking a pipe in his studio, etc...
