I’ll Draw Your Portrait

Update April 10, 2012: Results are here!

Hey I’m back after taking a “me” week. And you can look forward to some real technical SQL stuff very soon. But first a contest!

A lot of people have mentioned that they like my cartoon illustrations. And those are great comments. I have a lot of fun drawing them! For example here are a couple of the illustrations that I’ve done for some friends:

Friend 1:
Friend 1

Friend 2:
Friend 2

I’ll Draw You Too

So I’ll draw you for first prize in a contest! Take a look at the faces of my friends above, guess their names and fill in the form below. I’m accepting submissions until Friday, March 23 at 12:00 noon, Eastern time. I’ll select one random winner from correct responses (spelling counts!) and if you’re that winner, I’ll contact you to do a picture for you (or even a loved one).

Thanks to everyone who submitted! I’ll announce the winner shortly

Good luck!
