2009 Pieces of Flair Draw My Cartoon Contest

In the tradition of the highly successful PoF Cheap Perfume Song Contest and the PoF T-Shirt Art Contest, PoF is proud to announce the first ever PoF Draw My Cartoon Contest!

Here are the rules: Readers will view and vote to determine the winner. Whoever makes the cut will be profiled on the site, will walk away with a free version of the cartoon on an official PoF t-shirt, and - most importantly - will bear the title of Winner of the Pieces of Flair 2009 Draw My Cartoon Contest.

Interested contestants may send their original submissions to Matthew via the email addresses located in the PoF Bloggers link. Entries should be in JPEG or PNG format. The deadline for entries is noon on Saturday, March 28, 2009 EST. Let's get artsy!

The proposed cartoon is a standard three-frame format:

Frame 1: Two guys are seated in a restaurant booth in front of a large window. One has a full head of hair and is eating a hamburger and fries, the other is balding and eating a salad. Hamburger guy says, “Man, I’m beat. I’d have given my left lung for an extra hour of sleep today.”

Frame 2: Hamburger guy’s face now rests on his plate. Salad guy is looking out the window, where a smiling Jesus is floating on a cloud beneath a banner that reads, “Free Wish Day – Everybody Gets One.”

Frame 3: The cloud has floated on by, and hamburger guy remains in the same position. Salad guy is stealing a fry and now has a full head of hair.
