Contest: Win a Caricature Drawing!

Dearest Gangstas,

because I love you so much for being a part of my posse, I’ve asked Ashley if she’d be willing to offer one of her caricatures as a prize on my blog. She was like, “Word up, homie – anything for you because you are ALL THAT and a pack of Pop Rocks.” Okay, so maybe she didn’t say that, but she was excited to help a sista out with this contest.

In case you missed yesterday’s post, here’s the drawing that she did of Frank and me:

For the winner, Ashley will create a drawing of up to 2 people. The winner will send via email a photo of you (and your +1, or whatever 2 people you choose) and your mailing info to Ashley, and then she’ll send your caricature to you via snail mail. For examples of caricatures she’s drawn, take a look at Ashley’s gallery. As you can see, Ashley can draw you in a particular locale. We just opted to have a blank background.

    I’m not going to enter – I live in the UK anyway so posting would cost an arm and a leg and then thanks to our crap mail it would probably never arrive. But what’s this about points ?
    Can they be traded in for chocolate like my tesco clubcard ?
    Just in case I’m reminding you that I am following on Twitter and I signed up to the blog. I actually love the fact that the little thing in the corner says “Howdy” cowgirl. Makes me smile every time 🙂

      I have done Caricatures and sent them digitally. I have a high quality scanner and can send you one that will be high resolution. No pressure. 😉

    I’d have Ashley draw my husband and I. We’d either be at a hospital (’cause that’s where we met, as patients) or somewhere in San Francisco (since we go there once a month).

    I’ve been subscribed for a while; but started using the reader when I started my own blog.

    It would be me and the Husband. Maybe at the pyramids of Giza (we lived near there); maybe him with a flamenco guitar and me with a flute (just a normal one, thankyouverymuch), maybe us ballroom dancing. Maybe him as a beast and me as a beauty (insert easy joke here). Maybe him as a doctor and me as the bride of Frankenstein.

    Hmmmmmm….I’m going to be thinking about the possibilities all night.

  5. Lori Lavender Luz on May 1, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    I already subscribe to you!

  6. Lori Lavender Luz on May 1, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    I also follow you on Twitter. I can’t help it — you are all that!

  7. Pam on May 1, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    I’d draw me and Vic. Not sure what the locale would be, but I’m sure you could help there.

    And you’re a famous gangsta now because you’re up on her site. 🙂

  8. Pam on May 1, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    I follow you on twitter too, which you know.

  9. Pam on May 1, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    And I’ve subscribed to your blog, well, since forever.

  10. Pam on May 1, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    And I just tweeted this too!! (yeah me again)

  11. Pam on May 1, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    Me again…just shared it on FB too. 🙂

  12. Pam on May 1, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Ok, final one…commented on Ashley’s caricature gallery. She really does a great job, evidenced by capturing that look of Frank’s. LOL.

    So cool – but I am petrified of these type of drawings.

  14. Barbara on May 3, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    (1) Ha! I would have the drawing done of me alone, or me & a friend or my parents for their anniversary gift this year. I haven’t decided yet but definitely one of the 3.

    (2) I already follow you on twitter. Credit me chica! 😉

  15. Barbara on May 3, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    (3) Left a comment on Ashley’s site. Her work is awesome!

  16. Barbara on May 3, 2012 at 6:58 pm

    (4) Did the twitter thing.

  17. Kristin on May 4, 2012 at 12:08 am

    I’d love to have Ashley draw a caricature of me and Vic. Maybe she could make me as sexy as she made you look.

  18. Kristin on May 4, 2012 at 12:11 am

    I commented on Ashley’s caricature page.

  19. Kristin on May 4, 2012 at 12:20 am

    I posted on Facebook about this contest
