Just under a month ago, HijiNKS ENSUE turned 7 years old. I held a Fancy Fan Art contest to celebrate and here are the winners!
FIRST PLACE goes to Troy Zimmerman for this Edward Gorey inspired version of me. Clearly this is my destiny. This is my inescapable fate. Troy wins a digital commission of any 1 or 2 HE characters of his choice, doing pretty much whatever (within reason).
SECOND PLACE goes to Jess D. for JOEL AND ELI JOUSTING ON FREAKING DINOSAURS! Check that crazy nonsense out! Jess wins any two signed HE comic prints from my store.
THIRD PLACE goes to Zach Martin for a pretty accurate portrayal of a way that I will likely die. Come to think of it, all three of these feature my potential, if not certain demise in some fashion or another. Zach wins any one signed HE comic print of his choice from my store.
Thank you, Fancy Winners! Email me to claim your prizes.
Honorable mentions go to Patrick Chin Cheong, for this account of our actual meeting at a convention. You can read a very kind and touching story about it here at his blog.
Another honorable mention goes to Steve Walvick for these weird-ass Haikus, because he was the only applicant who took my advice to “write a Haiku if you can’t draw” to heart. I’m not sure how I feel about the part about Josh’s dong being so close to the part about my daughter though.
