It is our hope that all of the makers who participated in this contest have been TRANSFORMED in some way – artistically, personally, spiritually, and/or physically (improved eye-hand coordination?  yes!) – by the time and energy dedicated to the creation of their submissions.
Everyone who took part in this exercise has completed a hero’s journey. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJwPIiUPfK4

The restrictions placed upon the contest entries were derived from The Santoro Correspondence Course for Comic Book Makers. It is my firmly held belief that restrictions such as the grid are ultimately freeing. I also believe that timing is the essential ingredient to making great comics. How do you study and practice timing in comics? You use the grid. 

The judging panel consisted of three men and three women from diverse backgrounds. Some were comics makers, some were comics readers and one was a “non-comics reader” - meaning this particular judge was not a comics initiate.

I will be writing more of my thoughts about this contest soon at The Comics Journal. I will also archiving all of the entries on a new tumblr in the near future. Stay tuned.

Please see this post for information regarding this fall’s correspondence course. Thanks. - Frank Santoro

P.S. Please reblog. Thank you. 

Thank you to Copacetic ComicsBig Planet Comics and the judges for contributing their efforts and financial support to make this contest possible.

(extra special thanks to Derik Badman, Bill Boichel and RM Rhodes)
