HOW DO YOU DRINK DR PEPPER CONTEST

Dr Pepper can be painted into so many experiences in our lives. Do you charge up with Dr Pepper while playing video games with friends? Perhaps you refresh yourself with Dr Pepper during your lunch break. Do you have fond memories of drinking Dr Pepper and sharing laughs on the porch with your grandparents?

We want to see: How do you drink Dr Pepper?

Show us how you drink Dr Pepper using any medium of visual art, other than photography or three-dimensional media. The winner will be turned into a mural so make sure you'd look great painted on a wall.

Paint yourself drinking Dr Pepper on the beach during a hot summer day. Sketch the Dr Pepper chugging contest you had with your friends. But you don't have to limit yourself to the realistic. Let your imagination run wild and create something a little more…imaginative.   Do an illustration of yourself enjoying a Dr Pepper while flying through the clouds, or depict Dr Pepper being poured off a 50-story building into your mouth.

This was before they selected the semi-finalists. I wasn't getting any feedback. Thought they were worth a shit, but apparently not. :/
