and the winner is...

8:30 saturday morning breakfast, march 10.
martha: "how old is this bread?"
adrian: "old enough to know butter".

and so another day begins.
we work on saturdays.
our first order of business:
judge the entries for the dust artwork contest.
then to pass "the envelope please"
to Planet Crimson,
and blog about it.

the field was quickly narrowed to the seven best entries out of 76.
the criteria was the same as for any packaging i.e.
creative eye-catching product association relevant to a particular concept.

in the case of our winner it is eye-catching in a creative manner
there's a mystique as to how the rhino got there,
and just where is there?, and why is it there?.
product association? well, people do associate me with a rhinoceros
not sure I like the sound of that.
and the relevant concept dust is also well covered
looks dusty enough to me.

so I am happy to announce Scott Abernethy
of Ijamsville, Maryland as the winner with entry # 57.
scott describes himself as:
"husband, father of three, professional computer nerd
amateur musician and photographer (with a heavy emphasis on amateur)".
he also happens to be webmaster for Planet Crimson.
NO, it was NOT rigged
(but if that money order doesn't arrive soon, scott...)

I would like to thank each one of you who took the time
and spent the thought and creativity needed to enter.
sorry there can only be one winner but if you're like me
the creative process itself makes it worthwhile anyway.
so don't be mad at me if you didn't win.

congratulations scott.
