Hey Pantheon Panels Pals— We hope you saw our earlier announcement, featuring ROMAN ROMANOVITCH as the winner of the first Pantheon Panels contest! Congratulations, Roman! Further congratulations to second and third runner-ups: Nils Rockafella Robins and Woo Shi Mun!
Wow and thanks.
We had a lot of encouragement from our followers about this contest, so we are happy to announce the prompt for: Pantheon Panels, week #2!
“Draw a comic about your strangest invention.”
Email your comics to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Deadline is next Friday, March 15, The Ides of March!
This week’s prompt was inspired by this page from Ben Katchor’s HAND-DRYING IN AMERICA.
Hey Pantheon Panel fans. This contest has definitely drawn a lot of attention, and we are thrilled by all of the positive response. We were down to the wire with this, and are still debating the merits of different submissions. Some were emotionally evocative representations, some were geometrically fascinating, and some were just aesthetically inspiring. But the hands down vote went to Roman Romanovitch for the incredibly drawn artwork above. There is something so viscerally appealing in this art that Peter Mendelsund wants to know “what else is in ‘The Museum of Useless Things,’” and Chip Kidd had a simple, “this Roman fellow aced it.”
Calling All Artists! Don’t forget, the deadline for our contest is Friday!
Here’s the idea: Draw a representation of the home you grew up in, but in the style of Chris Ware’s BUILDING STORIES. Submissions are due Friday, March 1st. The winner’s art will be posted on Friday, March 8th—on our Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter pages.
We’re thrilled to report that two Pantheon books won Eisner Awards at the ceremony in San Diego last week. Craig Thompson (pictured) won Best Writer/Artist for Habibi and Art Spiegelman’s MetaMaus won Best Comics-Related Book. See the full list of winners here.
