Celebrating One Year of Blogging

Great Big, Humongous, Gigantic, Give-Away: Today begins the four days of registration for my big give-away. Beginning today, and until the end of January 4, anyone that adds a comment on my blog will have their name placed in a hat for a chance to win one of two prizes. That's all you have to do. Just make a comment on this particular post and your name will be entered for a chance to win!!

Prize #1: A free print of any of my cartoons that I've posted on my blog this past year. (I will even pay for shipping.) Excluded as a possible choice are any of the caricatures that I've done for other people this past year. But! The winner gets to choose from any of my cartoons - color or black & white - that have been displayed on my blog this past year. Yours to cherish for a life time!

Prize #2: Perhaps the grand prize - A free caricature drawn by me. All the winner has to do is send me a photo, or two, of themeselves, or of whoever they may want me to illustrate. Then I will go to work and create the winner their very own Rick Green original illustration. The only stipulation is that the caricature can only be of one person - no groups illustrations for this prize.

Included with your comment you will need to provide information for me to contact you in case you are the winner. The normal link back to a personal blog would work just fine - or an e-mail address. Whatever it will take for me to make contact with you.

On January 5, I will put all the names in a hat and then two of my daughters will draw out one name each for each one of the prizes. Then I will announce the winners on my blog sometime on the 5th. Each person entering is allowed only one entry. Posting more than one comment will not give you more opportunities to win. My family members are not allowed to enter - you all generally get my services for free anyway.

Good luck and thank you for all the fun that I've had this past year.

Rick Green
Cartoonist for the Common Man & Wo-man

P.S. And for you art lovers out there...

Dave Hingsburger said...

Hi, I'll admit I came to your blog because I wanted to make a complaint about sending a spam comment to my blog davehingsburger.blogspot.com But once getting here and looking at your drawings and reading your posts, I found myself enjoying myself. So, I take back the complaint I was going to make and instead will wish you a happy 1st ... have you done many charicatrues of people with disabilities ...?

Sila Lumenn said...

Happy New Year Rick! I hope 2008 brings you much joy and laughter.

Happy Blogiversary, too! Thank you for bringing a little joy and laughter into my life. :-)

I love this cartoon. It reminds me of the seagull scene in "Finding Nemo." Too funny! Way hard to find the egg man, too, but I persevered and he has been spotted. w00t!

BenefitScroungingScum said...

Hi Rick, thanks for stopping by my blog. I've only just had a quick look around yours, but I'll be back, I love your work! Happy New Year, Bendy Girl

Ashley's Mom said...

Like Dave, I thought your comment on my blog was spam. I realize now I was wrong. A Happy New Year and Happy Blogaversary to you!

Deb in OPKS said...

Ooooh, oooh, pick me, pick me!

I love the seagulls. I went to San Francisco once and that very thing happened to me. I tried to get it on my camcorder but I goofed and wasn't able to show my daughter. It was too funny.

Beatrice said...

Maybe you'll design a cross stitch chart for the stitchers on your comments.
Happy New Year to you and yours!.
And Happy 1st blogday. I've only been blogging since June!!
Beatrice

Colleen said...

Happy New Years Rick! Our little town in Germany had a huge display of fireworks last night. I'm on the top of the hill so I was able to look out of my bedroom window at all the fireworks going on in the lower city. What a beautiful site! Love your drawing, I want a bite of the sandwhich too. lol.

Bronie said...

Happy New Year Rick! I was actually dropping by (and will email you too) to say hi, but while I'm here, throw my name in the hat! Giveaways are FUN!

My husband vetoed my idea that we discussed briefly before Christmas, so I'm back to my "drawing board" before coming to yours. Still interested though.

Lakota Princess said...

LOL! I'm with Dave, I came over to see if I'd been spammed, ready to lay some Barbie whoopass down, only to find out this is a kickin' cool site. A caricature of Lakota Princess, International Spy Barbie? Oh yeah, that would be fun - count me in! My only dilemia... what to wear if I win...
Is this by invite only or can I send over my other leading characters to register?

Lady in red said...

wow I never expected to find anything like this. your pictures are amazing.

Mabunny said...

Happy Blogiversary and New Year to you and yours Rick!!
I didn't think you were spam the first time you posted on my blog, I was just excited that someone outside of family had seen it!! lol

You know my blogsite, as you still visit it from time to time, but, it is AblesAntics.blogspot.com just in case.

Marcy aka Mabunny

I love the seagulls - in particular that little one on top of the post to the right of the mans' head. Soooooo cute, I'm going to call him Trevor!

Happy New Year from the UK

Curious how you picked blogs to post your contest??? Could you let us know? I would like to know before I let your comment through. I have enjoyed your cartoons on mom2my6pack's blog.
Thanks for visiting (I think)-
Patience

Brenda said...

Cool! Happy New Year. Those birds remind me of my dogs and cats.

Dayna said...

I had to come back and do this - I would just love to see what you would do with the tag line "Where chronic illness and childhood collide." since all three of my kids have a chronic illness that requires them to get frequent infusions. Like I said in the last post - I totally imagine something like my oldest riding his skate board with his IV pole attached... or my middle one riding a horse with the iv trailing behind... or the youngest, riding his bike with the IV pole on it!

Becky in East Tennessee said...

WOOHOOOOO!!!! *snoopy dancing on the coffee table!!!* Congrats on the big bloggoversary!! May God richly bless you in your NEXT year!

Wow look at all the comments this is like another certain blog that I visit daily lol. I hope you saw the new year in well? Of course we didnt lol we nearly got there though, but knowing there would be little people getting up around 6:30 was the incentive to go to bed. Happy New Year heres to 2008 and many more caricatures to impress us with!!!! By the way I love the seagulls, this is why I dont like going to the beach here, my kids think its great to be surrounded by seagulls and dodge being pooped on lol.

Hi Rick! I have been hovering ever since you did the caricature for Dawn... Your art is so wonderfully unique! And you are so generous to give away a free print! I'll bet whoever wins will choose the one you did for Dawn Meehan : )

Happy Blogiversary. I love the little comic with the gulls, very funny. Happy New Year.

chickadee said...

cute doodles!

Jill said...

Love the seagull drawing.
We were at sea World a few weeks ago, and there were signs near all of the restaurants warning against feeding the Seagulls. They went something like "Seagulls may become agressive. Do not leave food unattended, and do not leave small children alone with food"
Do you suppose the seagulls take the food FROM the small children, or do they think the children ARE the food?
Jill

It seems that going to all our blogs worked well in your favor!! Thanks for the comment and now I'm interested in checking out your prices and such.


I'm mostly interested in knowing if you do any drawings besides caricatures? I really like your illustrating style & I need to find someone to draw a plain rubber duck for a tattoo I plan to get relatively soon. =) I've been trying to find a picture for several months and none of my friends are very artistic.

KellyJean said...

hApPy bLoG aNnIvErSaRy! WOO HOO!!!

Throweth my nameth into old hatteth!

I posted about your contest with a link back here on my blog! Of course, I already commissioned you to do a caricature of me for my blog so you can just pretend to throw my name in the hat. I think it'll be worth the money!

VanDerHoekArt said...

I think Eggman is in on the sandwich takeover, sitting there looking all innocent, ha! I am totally onto him.

To answer your question, Etsy is a web site that promotes the sale of handmade items. Listings are .20 cents for 4 months and you automatically get a shop when you list an item. It's better than Ebay but, sadly, has less traffic which means less exposure. I like it though, the community is great.

Happy New Year Rick!

Robin said...

Very cool - I just found your blog from the comments in someone else's blog.

Barb said...

Happy New Year Everyone! Actually,many years ago I knew a young man whose ice cream cone was attacked by two sea gulls in Orange County, California. They must be ancestors to Rick's birds in this painting/cartoon:0] Would anyone know if being pushy is a natural trait in sea gulls? Brrr. . . very cold here in ole Kentucky.

Caroline said...

Hi! I saw your link over at JD's blog (I Do Things So You Don't Have To) and thought I'd come check out your blog.

Awesome cartoons... really. I've enjoyed the look-see and though this is my first comment, I still wish you a Happy Anniversary!

I've been lurking around your blog since you left a comment on my anniversary post over at my blog! :) I love your caricatures! My oldest son is an artist, so I have a special place in my heart for people who love to draw, and do it well!

So even if I don't win, I'll still keep coming back and lurking around. Maybe I'll even comment a time or two! :)

Ha I love when there is a prize being awarded you have nearly 200 comments, great job Rick your blog has really taken off from when I first met you. I'm not really commenting for the prize because of the other drawing you did for me and I think someone else should be able to enjoy your artwork as much as I do. Keep up the good work my fellow blogger and Hope your family is doing well.

Joe

Your work cracks me! I love it!

I had an idea for a great one (personal choice of course)... I chat with 12 ladies from all over the world every day! We became friends years ago online and have stayed such. Many of us have met at least one member of the gang, but we have never all been together at once. So my choice would be one of us all hanging over a large margarita glass with 12 straws - TOGETHER! Or even a really large bottle of wine and 12 wine glasses "cheering" each other! ;)

Jennifer said...

Your work is great! I googled you after I saw your artwork of Dawn in the Chicago paper. Glad I found you.

Susan said...

Love the cartoon. Thanks for being the very first person to EVER comment on my blog. And BTW what a good way to get some traffic moving this way. I love your illustrations and hope I win!!!

Cool, I'd love to win the drawing!! I'd really love a cool drawing like Dawn's on her page, so that my blog page could be just as cool as her's!
Thanks for the tip to come on over.

Well I can't have too many of your works of art! Happy New Year and may you become more and more successful. That way I can sell what I own of your art and retire early!

Peace!
