Halloween Contest 2014Here are the winners of this year’s Halloween contest! Thanks to everybody who entered! As always, there were tons of great ideas so it was difficult to pick the winners. Common themes were: crossing over to the other side, ghostly speech bubbles, automated message services of the beyond, and bowling balls mistaken as crystal balls. And the winners are…

The Grand Prize (a Savage Chickens book, a Cat Adventures book, and two sets of buttons):

“DJ Techno, if you can hear us, knock 3 times then drop a phat beat.” – by Mike P.

The Runner-up Prizes (a signed copy of the cat book):

“Was your grandfather in the army? I’m getting something about serving with Colonel Sanders.” – by Allen’s Brain

“Does anyone know a deceased family member, friend or acquaintance whose name begins with a letter of the alphabet?” – by Joonas N.

Congratulations to the winners! I’ll be in touch soon to get your address information. Thanks to everybody who participated this year! Hope you had a great Halloween!

Hot One Inch ActionThis weekend, I’m in the Hot One Inch Action show at the Hot Art Wet City gallery here in Vancouver. It’s a special one-night-only show on Saturday, September 27, 7 PM – 11 PM, featuring art on one-inch buttons.

When you arrive, you can buy a bag of random buttons for $5, and then the haggling begins as you try to trade for the buttons you really really want. Featuring fifty local artists and limited-edition buttons that you won’t see anywhere else, including one designed by yours truly.

Hope to see you there! Here are the details, and here’s the event on Facebook.

Update: Here’s a picture of my button from the show!
