Two Hands Two Crowns Giveaway to Best List!

My new website is up and I feel FANTASTIC. I owe many thanks to talented web designer Scott Borys for putting up with me for a second time (Scott also programed my first website.) Designing it and setting up my Etsy shop occupied so much space in my brain for so long that I feel very exhilarated to move on to new projects. Firstly I’m helping with the new online photobooth art gallery, Fotomaton.org. Secondly, I’m doing the illustrations and cover art for a new book. And thirdly I’m designing the t-shirts, posters and a mural for an improv festival happening this spring. (More on these as they unfold.)

And for the next three months I’m going to do a new weekly series on the blog. Each Sunday I’ll showcase a photobooth strip I’ve found along with a narrative I’ve fabricated. Stay tuned for what I think are riveting photos!

And now the CONTEST DETAILS!

In celebration of my new website and the Two Hands Two Crowns shop on Etsy I’m giving away a Beast Button (of the winner’s choice) to the Best List. The list must be original and related to Art, Design or Craft in some way. Post it below in the comment box. There’s no maximum number of entries per person and the “judging” will close on Wednesday March 2nd at midnight EST time. I’ll be judging the entries with my experience as a self-proclaimed list-connoisseur but there is no rubric. Be creative, have fun and good luck!

    ways to make art in everyday life

    put sweety tubes on your pets legs for an interactive "robot" installation.

    While waiting in a ticketed que imagine you are playing the national lottery (to increase chances of winning take many tickets)

    video the suffering from a hangover and edit it into an "Exorcist remake"

    frame used loo-roll as expressionist painting

    cut holes in the crotches of your trousers to make effective and fasionable jumpers.

    speak at half your normal speed, hey presto a David Lynch eerie dialogue

    Talk to a stranger

    Be very, very messy when applying mustard and ketchup to things

    walk slowly backwards with a video camera then watch it rewind to create the effect of walking forwards.

    walk forwards with a video camera then watch it in rewind to give the impression of walking quickly backwards

    when using skype on an Ipad put it to your ear and pretend you are a midget with an Iphone

    Pretend you are a giant by treating your Iphone as an Ipad
