Winner announced, challuunge extended…

...just in case you was curious...

Hey all… thanks for comin back.  We happened to have a winner that was selected by a jury of their peers.  The art was submitted, the people took to the interwebs and have selected your winner.  This week’s winner is our returning champion:  Andrew Johanson!  Oh yeah!  Now that you’re back with a vengeance, get in your two words for the next challuunge…

The words for this week are: PROSTHETIC / DIAMOND

However, we are extending the challuunge for two weeks due to crazy undercover secret government area51 type happenings that if we told you what they were, we’d have to… well, you know… tell you to forget it, ‘n stuff. 

So, PROSTHETIC / DIAMOND will be due in two weeks, on Friday October 3rd.  So that’s plenty of time for you to summon up the courage to get your very first art challuunge submission submitted, real nice like.  Break out the chocolate syrup and make a messy finger painting, grab some old kitty litter and glue it together, sands kitty leavin’s, to make a sculpture, eat a ton of popcycles and save the sticks to form a surprisingly accurate rendition of a log cabin… whatever you gotta do, you got two weeks ta do it!  You’re welcome!

Here’s some inspiration to tide you over till then…
