Company name

Q

Overview

I'm an iPhone/Web developer & I'm about to launch a new product. I'm afraid I can't tell too much right now, suffice to say that it'll be in the social networking sphere.

To celebrate 99designs' Webby Award I thought I'd give back to the community by throwing a fun & well paid contest!

Isn't drawing cartoons pure unadulterated FUN? That's exactly what I am asking you to do! & I'm paying you for it too!

I've got the cartoon's script & text nailed down but my drawing skills are so bad a 6-months old could do better!

I have attached a bad drawing of what the cartoon should look like & described each frame below.

Feel free to be creative & go wild inside each frame in the cartoon, but you NEED to follow the layout & at a minimum you need to draw what is described in each frame.

I'll upload the finished & winning cartoon for all to see! Complete with text & all ;-)

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Do you like TheOatmeal? (http://www.theoatmeal.com) ... ThingsBearsLove? (http://www.thingsbearslove.com) ... Xkcd? (http://www.xkcd.com) ... Cyanide & Happiness? (http://www.explosm.net/comics/2091/) ... We the robots? (http://www.wetherobots.com/) ... ?

Yep, me too ... that's why I need YOU to draw my cartoon. With YOU I mean someone who:

1) Is creative
2) Can draw cartoons in a simple & clear style
3) Can make the drawings funny

I want you to draw a cartoon that :

1) Is fairly WIDE (think 800px)
2) Is BIG (making the user scroll is fine!)
3) Is Vector-based
4) Has a clean, simple design
5) Has a white background
6) Has a unique, distinct drawing style
7) Has BIG speech bubbles (I will add text later)
8) Has LOTS of whitespace (I will add text later)

So ... are you up for it? Then open the attachment & read on!
