Announcing the Endless Bummer Top-Of-The-Page Logo Title Design Thing Reader Competition

So I have been perusing some other surf blogs today, kind of renaissance of some serious practice in procrastination, and I notice that a lot of the blogs have fancy pictures or graphics as their blog titles.
(Note: Sissyfish, The Fresh Aspect, and Surf&Destroy.)
(oh, and Pinniped too.)(and the Mollusk NY blog.)

I tried my hand at it and I suck. Antonio would be good at it, but somehow he has priorities and doesn't procrastinate and thus, is busy. So I am starting up a competition to see if any of you (any of the three or four that actual read this thing) can come up with some sort of design for the title.

There are no parameters, save that it needs to be a JPG and not really too big.
(But it can be pretty big I suppose.)
If you have something just email it to me at:
toddy (at-sign-thingy) ok-oh dot com

Competition starts now and stops whenever I get a few.
That is to say, I won't hold my breath for a big selection.
That would be crazy. (and may take years.)(and way too much prodding of anyone I have ever met.)

Ok, Todd.

(oh, and if you are going to do one, leave a note in the comments section saying so. That way I 'll know to wait for it. Because yeah, I know you take a long time with these sorts of things.)(or maybe, on second thought, don't. I mean, that could really be a disaster if after a week there are no comments or nothing.)

Cripes, jack that thing does change over time. I think it just went from 3-5 to 2-6. Is that right?

jack said...

oh yeah, that thing is accurate and updates a couple times daily. now you'll always know what you're missing.

haha. bummer, I would have probably have given this a shot but haven't checked in anywhere near lately. no loss to you though, some great submissions, the scoreboard is my favorite by far.

Oh Seamouse! You can still have a hand if you want. Creativity is a free flowing thing. I can always ad an addendum-to-the-addendum poll. My grandfather always said: you can never have enough addendums.
