Fans asked for it, so here it is. The jon.com t-shirt design contest is officially on! Enter for the fun, for the prestige, for the PRIZES!

The top three designs will be featured on shirts for sale on jonsmythe.com, the novel’s official website. In compensation (and in addition to my undying gratitude), the winners will receive their choice of:
- A year-long subscription to dA.
- An autographed first-edition copy of jon.com (estimated release date: January 2, 2009).
- A set of four official jon.com t-shirts.

The Grand Prize winner will receive all three prizes!

All shirt designs will be on display on the denlm dA page for the duration of the contest, and the winning designs will be featured in an article on dA upon conclusion of the event.

The rules are simple.
1) Create a t-shirt design that entices internet users to visit jonsmythe.com. See sample shirt design below:
T Shirt design 1 Jonsmythe.com by BeauNestor

2) If you have not read excerpts of jon.com on dA or visited the website, you are strongly encouraged to do so. Excerpts of jon.com can be found at denlm. The website url is www.jonsmythe.com.

3) Your design can incorporate one of the following four slogans, or a slogan of your own creation:
- I’m looking for Jon.
- You’ve seen me naked.
- But, darling, that’s what we pay him for.
- 416 Hunter Street, if you dare.

4) Include the website’s address within the design. Variations on the slogan are permissible, such as “You’ve seen me naked… at www .jonsmythe .com.”

5) When planning your design, you can choose to use the slogan only, use the slogan in conjunction with available artwork from the website, or use a wholly original visual and/or slogan that promote the site.

6) Artwork that is available for your use includes:
- Jon’s eyes open or closed.
- Jon peering through the broken transom over the front door.
- The logo treatment featuring a blood splatter in place of the dot in jon.com.

7) To receive artwork in electronic format, send a written request via note to denlm.

8) Submit your design on either a black or white background only. (See t-shirt sample above.)

9) Entries must be posted as a deviation on your dA page no later than midnight, Sunday, December 7, 2008, with a note to denlm at the same time announcing that it is ready for judging.

10) A panel of independent judges will score each entry: Up to 20 points for creative use of artwork and/or font treatment, and up to 30 points for ability to attract people to the novel’s website.

11) The decision of the judges is final and will be announced no later than December 14, 2008. All prizes will be awarded.

12) The panel of judges will include Denlm, Mystery-of-Sorrow, Penfury and BeauEromantica.

What are you waiting for? Get started now! Jon and I are eager to see what you come up with!

Where's the template to the blank tshirts? Or are they just stock?

I think most people are using stock, but if you want, I have a template for the black shirt that I can email you. Just send me your email in a note and it's on its way.

Please do. Would love to see your take on the novel and the website. If you could use any of the design elements I mentioned above, please drop me a note.

I know I made you a judge, but you could change your mind if you wanted. After all, "416 Hunter Street... if you dare" WAS your idea.

*impish grin* I'll wait and see how many entries you get and if they are few, I'll enter at the 11th hour just so you have something for the judges to haggle about. If you get a bunch, I'll save my ideas for when you need a new look. Why? Cause I'm crazy that way. :mwahaha:

It is so great to have someone like you at my back. (I have some ideas too, but entering my own contest wouldn't be quite fair, would it?)

I hear from a handful of folks that they are busy working on designs -- some of them claim to be going to submit more than one!

Already have some designs started. :plotting: Is there a limit to how many entries we can submit?

No limit. Enter as often as you would like.

But that's the beauty of this. You don't have to. It could all be done with font treatments and, if you wanted, with artwork I would send you from the site. Be brave, little buckaroo!

The year after my husband died. I was suddenly a single mom with two babies, so I wasn't seeing a lot of movies. Most of the 80s are a blur to me... but I've been assured I didn't miss much. hehehe
