What's all this about sass and a contest? I feel like I missed something D:
Channel Awesome is running a “contest” for their latest DVD cover art. The winner gets $100, a link on the DVD case, something for their portfolio, and that always fantastic promise of “exposure.” Yes, portfolios, meaning they’re asking professional artists to make some art for free in the vain hope of having Channel Awesome make a profit off their work on their DVD. Keep in mind, only the winner gets paid.
Keep in mind, Doug mentions they’re looking for Drew Struzan style artwork, otherwise known as the painter guy who’s done all the iconic posters of your childhood (Star Wars, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, etc). For the chance at $100 and exposure. Because lord knows if you’ve got that kind of talent you need Channel Awesome for exposure.
Also they offer no reference photos, Doug just said “there’s pics of us on the internet, google it, lol”
