PLANKING and OWLING are the new HOT thing in photography, and everyone is doing it. The web is jam packed with crazy photos, so look those up if you want a good laugh. What's that you say? NOT everyone is doing it? You're right! Everyone isn't doing it because there's just something missing from the fun. And that something is COMICS!
I hereby propose a new photo series called SWEETING. Here's how it works. Set your camera timer, or have someone take a picture of you reading an issue of SWEETS somewhere, in some creative way, and I'll reward MY 5 FAVORITES with a signed copy of the SWEETS COLLECTED EDITION, which hits the shelf in late August. Who doesn't love free comics? It's a win/win. As a bonus, I'll throw in a nice sketch for you on the inside cover. As for the judging, I'll be picking my 5 personal favorites based on a few different things like humor, creativity, originality, and even the quality of the photograph. After all, if we can't see the awesome comic, what good is the SWEETING photo? However, I do want everyone to think about safety here, I don't want anyone getting hurt—lets leave that to the Plankers. So use good judgement, don't climb on on the ledge of a 40 story building, please.
Obviously, those with copies of the single issues have the advantage, and that's the idea! I'm working up a few creative ways to reward the people that supported the book from the very beginning.
Just remember to tag it and make sure I see it by replying to this thread. I'll be sharing as many as I can here and on Twitter, so the "tag" we'll be using is SWEETING.
Good luck, and I'm looking forward to seeing your entries.
As for the contest, I'll make my final decision on August 15th, so you better get started today!
