...and the winners are:
for contest #1:
and for contest #2:
I cannot tell you how difficult this decision was...
Thank you ALL SO VERY MUCH for contributing to this contest! I was so pleased with the turnout! It was very interesting to see everyone's interpretations of the comic strip especially!
I had a very different train of thought when drawing out the panels.
With all that in mind, I think the next time there's a contest (WHICH WILL BE SOON, BY THE WAY, so keep posted) I will let the viewers determine the winner...
I'll be contacting the winners soon with details about their prize!
...and if you REALLY wanted a mug, give me a shout and we can work something out!
'til next monday folks!
