Winners of the Blobular competition

A Blue Perspective: Winners of the Blobular competition

The number of entries received for my Blobular competition was lower than I expected, but the quality and imagination of the entries that I did get was mind-blowing! Maps of the world, tributes to my favourite book/movie/radio series ... they all made selecting winners way harder than I'd hoped for, so I've ended up handing out a couple more books than I planned to:

  • Marko was obviously angling for The Art and Science of CSS, so one of those is going his way.
  • I just couldn't stop staring at Dylan's entry, so hopefully by sacrificing a book to him it'll get that baleful eye out of my mind.
  • I'm giving a book to Ludwig just because I like to encourage young talent in Web design.
  • But undoubtedly, Master Of The Blobs can be none other than David VanDusen, who created some incredibly beautiful pictures out of a crappy circle-drawing program. Take your pick from the spider, the peacock or (my personal favourite) the horse; each one is worthy of an entire bookshelf.

So, if you've won a book, drop me a line and let me know where you'd like it delivered to. I'll dispatch one of my winged monkeys ASAP.

    Wow thanks! I am soo excited :) I found a bookstore about an hour away that has a selection of web design books (by that I mean they have 4 and 1 that can be ordered in for you), one of those is The Art and Science of CSS so since I will be able to get my hands on a copy of that on a later date (without having to order one in from the States) I think I'll grab a copy of Web Standards Creativity where you are joined by a bunch of other talented web designers as well :)

    Thanks again Cameron, you absolutely rock!

    Congrats to all winners! Hell, congrats to all entrants! The best I did was get 3 unevenly spaced blobs...

    Wow... slick entries! My blobular technique resulted in a "flower" and some things that would sound quite fancy if I called them tadpoles!

    "Master Of The Blobs." I'm not sure I can live up to such a lofty title.

    Holly Cow! Those entries are impressive!

    I started a stick figure version of American Gothic (not all your readers are down under) but gave up after about 10 minutes of dragging dots about the screen. After seeing the competition I my picture looked like chicken scratch.

    Awesome work! I really like the arabian horse and the peacock (very nice details with the small blobs).
    Congratulation Cameron, very smart idea...and next time I will join....
