DeviantArt, The Bureau of Festivities, Compulsion Games, and Gearbox Publishing thank you for your help in getting the word out about Wellington Wells. We were overJOYed to see so many great pieces and, after much consideration, we have finally found the three winners of the Wellington Wells Postcard Contest!

Chosen by We Happy Few's Whitney Clayton (Art Director), Sarah Hamilton (Concept Artist), and Carylitz Tamez (Environmental Artist), here are our First, Second, and Third Place postcards including some comments from our judges.

"We happy few"

Monanu

$3,000 USD6-Month Core MembershipWe Happy Few Time CapsuleWe Happy Few GameWe Happy Few T-Shirt

JUDGES COMMENTS:

Beautiful Illustration. Clean and technical. Great sense of motion. Great use of iconic themes from the game (the rats, butterflies, bunting, fashion). Dynamic, thematic poses. Cool use of depth and perspective. Accurate, interesting symbolism - not sure if the heart/skull between the couple was intentional but regardless it's really cool.

Splash Nobody

"Splash!"

GalooGameLady

JUDGES COMMENTS:

Super bold, fun and stylish. Extremely expressive. Thematically fits the world really well (cool clothing, moppy haircuts, shape of the shoes, rendering of the buildings and representation of Joy). Amazing, psychedelic color palette and shapes that references real 1960's psychedelic posters. The cartoonish nature of the characters is very fun.

JUDGES COMMENTS:

Really nails the “travel poster” theme. Professional, clean style. Great use of themes and symbols from the game (light vs dark, piñata/rat symbolism). Composition really brings your eye around to the piñata/rat - the message in the illustration has a lot of impact and is very clear.

I was too late to join. Didn't know about the contest until I was home from my vacation. Sigh!

Regardless, congrats to all the winners.
