Originally titled, “MORTIMER GLUM’S –SHOW ME YOURS AND I’LL SHOW YOU MINE– CONTEST” the event quickly took on a life of it’s own. It soon became the EFJI Halloween Art Contest, and the response was fantastic! In only a few weeks, with very little advertising, we received 9 entries (technically 11 entries because superfan Julio Mariscal overachieved with 3 entries!) and all had their merits. You can see all the entries HERE.
The fight to decide the winners was fierce, much blood was spilled. Once the brawl was over, the dust had settled and the wounds stitched up, we had our winners. And some new scars.
The Rules of the contest were simple:
1) Draw/sketch/scribble your favorite EFJI character.
2) Post the artwork to your Facebook wall.
3) Tag Escape From Jesus Island in the image.
The Jesus Island crew will judge the entries based on originality, technique, ridiculousness and overall heresy.
We were completely blown away by the entries in our first annual Escape From Jesus Island Halloween Art Contest. First and foremost, we want to thank everyone who took the time to bring one of our characters to life with your artwork. Due to the tremendous quality of your work, we’ve decided to include the top three entries in print in our first issue as opposed to just the winner, as previously planned.
Everyone who submitted an entry will receive a PDF copy of our premiere issue and their names will be etched into the Wall of Silence alongside all the ReGen staff who lost their lives at the Malsum Island Research Facility. The Wall of Silence will appear in Issue 1 of EFJI, as well as on our site.
