The Results Are In!!!

As I thought, the girls were slow in getting up and were NOT happy with the idea of me taking their photos without me giving them a chance to clean up their act a bit. My youngest kept asking, "Dad, why are you so crazy?"

My Dad always said, "Insanity is hereditary. You get it from your kids." But I didn't tell her that. I was focused on getting the task done.

I had so many people sign up for my little give-away that my hat was over flowing and I had to move the names over to our popcorn bowl. Thank you everyone!!!

So, here are the results.

Drum roll please...

Prize #1: CONGRATULATIONS to "stimey" over at stimeyland . My youngest daughter pulled your name from the hat (bowl) and you have just won a free copy of any one of my cartoons that I've published on my blog. Your possible choices excludes any of the caricatures that I have drawn for other people. But you CAN choose any of the other illustrations that I've published on this blog. The illustration will come to you on a clean white piece of 11x14 paper - suitable for framing. Free shipping is included.

More drum roll...

Prize #2: CONGRATULATIONS to "somepinkflowers" over at her blog by the same name . My 2nd child pulled your name out of the hat (again - bowl) and you have just won a free caricature created by me. I will be needing to hear from you about who you would like me to illustrate, the scenario for that illustration, and gets some photos from you for me to look at. Again, free shipping is included. So, start thinking.

THANK YOU EVERYONE!! that posted a comment on my blog. I was amazed at how many people were willing to sign up. I hope that you will visiting again - often, and that you'll think of me when it comes to meeting your cartoon needs.

Well congrats to the winners and rats for me, but oh well. It was a cute and imaginative give away. I would never go to any lengths to hurt anyone when I didn't win a contest and phooey to the people that won't take it for the fun it was meant to be:))
Anyway Rick, keep me "tooned". Will be checking back regularly

You are a very generous man and I know two people will feel very blessed with their treasure from you.

Can't wait to see what your next project is. I love the anticipation of checking your blog each day, hehe. It's just fun.

Stacie said...

Yay! congratulations to stimey and Pinkflowers...how cool for both of them!

Just thought I'd come back and clear something up... Rick, to the best of my knowledge, you weren't in the Chicago paper.

I know, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I was mistaken. You see, I listen to Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me on NPR, which is taped, usually, in Chicago. And then I saw one of your drawings on the NPR site and my mind, still coping with my new baby brain, made the leap to Chicago and there you have it... my very unorganized, train of thought apology for misleading you. So sorry... Here's the link where I discovered you - http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=17638014

Glad you like the pink bike. I might actually get to own one similar to it one day. :-)

Congratulations to you lucky winners! You will be thrilled with your prizes.

BTW blog hopping has become my No.1 pastime over the holidays, I have found some wonderful places to go and even better it stops me from eating! I HATE greasy keys!

KellyJean said...

Congratulations to the winners!

And congratulations to you Rick! You got a great response!

If I were you, I'd keep up with the commic strip. You may yet get that in the papers.

Lucille said...

Congrats to the winners!

I'm hoping you post with an update of what they have selected!

People were complaining that you offered to give them a prize? Huh? What is going on people!?


I hope to get back into the blogging mode - since I was sick I haven't really said or done much of anything.

Best to you for 08!
