My pal Laura from Mums the Wurd has started a new retail venture called Space Monkey. They have a really great contest going on right now so I thought I'd let her tell you about it:
Some people have asked me, “So, what exactly IS Space Monkey? What are you selling?” Well, The Space Monkey Shop offers 12″ x 12″ canvas artwork that comes ready to hang for children’s rooms. (Custom sizes are also available. Just contact us for pricing on larger or smaller items. Imagine the image pictured as a 36″ x 36″ print. Cool, eh?) The prints are as clear and swell looking in person as they are on our website. Our artists have worked together for over 25 years, creating animation, graphic design, and film productions, so you can rest assured that your purchase from Space Monkey will be of the utmost quality. You know that little mouse known as Chuck E. Cheese? THEY DESIGNED HIM! They also create kitschy artwork for adults too. (You can find the big kid’s stuff here.)
As you can see, we only have a few series up right now, but Dan & Charlie are busy creating more art for you and your children to enjoy…
We want to know what you’d like to see in The Space Monkey Shop! And that’s not all…we’re hosting a contest to get the idea wheels turning! Here’s how it works:
Become a Fan of Space Monkey on Facebook, and post your ideas for a series or a design that you would like to see available in our online shop, or follow us on Twitter & DM us your idea, OR enter through MumsTheWurd HERE. We’ll pick one, make it available in the store, and GIVE YOU ONE 12 x 12 limited edition signed/numbered print on archival art paper FREE.
Yes, your idea will be rendered, you will get one of your very own, and your idea will remain in our store. Who knows, we might even name it after you! No idea is too far-out (as long as it’s family friendly): We are SPACE MONKEYS, after all! Now, conjure up some cool ideas and tell them to us! The deadline to enter is September 15th, 2009. Enter now!
FYI- Here's Jasper's favorite, Ro-Bit!
