If you're like me and you're a fan of Gary Larson or the New Yorker Caption Contest you'll really dig Craig Frazier’s ongoing, online DraWords project.
Here's the drill - Craig Frazier, a graphic designer whose work has appeared in Time and the Wall Street Journal posts one cartoon a week. Visitors, that means you, have until 5 p.m. Friday to submit your ideas for the caption. The winners are credited immediately online, and in a year or so, when Frazier has enough material for a book, you just might see yourself in print!
Frazier’s drawings are usually simple, trippy and kinda sorta weird, in a good way and are always screaming for an interesting, equally kinda sorta weird, sardonic caption.
I love the fun process. After you sign in and submit your caption you get a weekly email with the best of the submissions that didn't make the cut along with a link to the winner. (These are fun in the same way that the auditions on the first couple of episodes of American Idol are.)
Well, after a few months of submitting my own captions I'm happy to announce that this morning I got the email of last weeks runner ups and was totally stoked to see that I made the book.
Thanks Craig, best of luck with the book!
Here's my submission:
So what are you waiting for? Check out the rest and submit your own - it's fun!
