Inspiration: Giveaway

Giveaway: Chris Piascik Custom Print

by OKAT 147

A few days back Chris Piascik wrote me saying that he'd like to offer up something to all the lovely readers of Doodlers Anonymous. I got back to him with a ridiculous idea and he said yes. I told you he was nice.

But this, my friends, is different than anything we've done before. This giveaway hasn't even been created yet. See, Chris here has a beautiful way of laying text down on paper and this time around he'll draw the words of two winning readers.

So for the next few days you have the opportunity to win a custom, one-of-a-kind drawing. Leave a comment below with a short sentence or phrase and Chris will pick his (two) favorite, draw it up and ship it to you.

Please note: Comments close Monday the 24th, at 4pm. UPDATE: Comments are now closed. An amazing 144 comments. Thanks to all of you that participated. Chris will make his selects and drawings soon and we'll keep you all posted!
