So my cool friend Jerry Bennett has a chance for one of his designs to become a licensed Marvel t-shirt!
Jerry’s the Regional Illustrator Coordinator for the Oklahoma SCBWI, and he’s pretty awesome besides.
This is the art that’s up for consideration:
For those of you not in the know about comics, this shirt brings together two Marvel superheroes, Rocket Raccoon and Groot. You might, like me, look at this design and see only one character at first. But, aha, Rocket is actually clinging to Groot’s manly wooden chest, which is cleverly disguised within the shirt itself! So…when you wear this design, you’re not only showing your love for Groot, you’re also cosplaying him. Double prizes.
This contest is being hosted by We Love Fine, and you have to sign up to vote, but it’s not a big thing. Super-easy. Plus, I signed up a long time ago, and I don’t remember getting spammed by them or anything since then.
Jerry’s art tumblr has a few more details and the link, or you can just go directly to the contest here. Make sure the artwork I posted above, with Rocket on Groot’s chest, is the one displayed at the top when you get to the contest. If it’s not, you can just scroll down and find it. After you click on Jerry’s artwork preview, it should bring it up on the top of the page. Scroll back up and click on FIVE so we can make this thing happen!
Contest is open until October 21, so get over there and help make this cool shirt a reality!
