I will get a tattoo of my favorite original shark drawing sent to me between now and the end of Shark Week 2014.
Keep reading for more details.
How do I enter?
To enter, you must simply send me an original shark drawing before the end of Shark Week (August 17, 2014.) Drawings can be transmitted any way you like.
Here are some suggestions:
- Twitter (@chris_rylander) with the hashtag #SharkWeekTattoo
- posted in the comments below
- Email: cdrylander (at) yahoo (dot) com.
Basically, if you can get your drawing in front of my eyes in some fashion, then you can enter the contest.
I mean, you can even enter in person if you see me walking down the street and just happen to have an original drawing of a shark in your pocket.
Who can enter?
Anyone. Even animals can enter if you have a particularly artistic pet horse or turtle or something.
NOTE: the tattoo artist may need to make minor changes to your artwork during the application process.
Does the drawing need to be realistic?
No, it just needs to contain a shark, or representation of a shark, in some form. Here are a few entries I’ve already received that took a more playful approach:
It can be any color, any size, any theme, anything your heart desires as long as it’s shark related.
Does the drawing need to be good?
Absolutely not! Anyone at any level of artistic ability can enter. In fact, here's the first entry I received:
Why on earth would someone do this?
Because I love sharks.
When will you choose a winner?
A winning drawing/painting/artwork will be selected by August 24, 2014. The tattoo will be permanently applied to my person by October 30, 2014, but hopefully sooner. Photos of the finished product will be posted to Twitter and Facebook.
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me via Twitter, email, comments or otherwise.
