9 SBI prizepool for THREE different categories: single frame, strip (at least 2 frames) and humor.
Contests will be announced on Sunday, prizes from the previous week handed out on Monday.
Prizes will increase as popularity of this contest increases.
Last week's winners can be viewed here:
If you are interested in being a judge for this contest, donating, or sponsoring, then you can post in the comment section or else DM me on Discord @ Devil#5124
SBI shares give you a share of a cascading reward pool that will upvote your posts according to how many shares you own! This is adjusted according to your posting frequency, so no need to feel pressured to post every day, just at least once a week. Over time this pays off to quite a lot more than a plain 3 SBD prize, but please let me know what you think in the comments!

Judging guidelines

  1. All skill levels are welcome. We will not be judging technical expertise but instead cartoon originality.
  2. This is not a fine art competition but a cartoon competition - that is not to say that a cartoon cannot demonstrate high levels of technical skill, but what is most important is its stylistic originality and the strength of its message.
  3. Cartoons can inspire all sorts of emotions from outrage to laughter, but do so because they have a narrative. The manner of presentation is simplified to where someone with zero background in either fine art or your subject matter can gather and take away your message: how will you do this with your cartoon?

For this eighth week, our judges will be @corpsvalues and @scrawly!!


@scrawly will be helping judge submissions again this week. Make sure to stop by their blog and check out their awesome work! The cover picture for this week's episode is recognizing the 4 judges we have featured so far: @linnyplant, @veryspider, @sanderjansenart, and @scrawly, done in a manner to resemble the iconic "Gorillaz" cover for their album Demon Days.

If you know of someone who you think is willing to take the leap and try their hand at making a cartoon, then be sure to give them a nudge, because despite there being 3 prizes awarded, this is actually a judgment free zone! =D
We look forward to seeing your best cartoons!
Good luck!

Thanks for your entry!

Awwww I know, Ficus! What gives?


Ficus is getting immune. ☺


Haha I wish I had practice drawing sometimes


Stick figures will do it's the thought content that matters not artistic skill we have had first time artists win


Then stick figures it is!!!

LOL, I made that reference too for my webcomic.Untitled-1.jpg

I made it as subtle as I can but some friends knew it right away. Hahahaha.


Haha awesome! I think it's a very iconic album not just for its artwork but for the group and their entire genre of music.


I like their feel good inc. I think I loved that band coz of that song and their cartoonic gimiks.

Oh wow, that profile says I need to lose weight! And this is in no way a criticism of the artfulness, but hopefully the guys will see it too.

I think I need to do a truckload of Actifit steps to work that chin off!

I think I just joined you in the ranks of ugly selfie...

Omg...so funny.

EDIT: Seriously, nice work!!


I know!! 😱😭


=p Thanks Linny! I was painfully aware that I was not being very flattering to your image, but I was trying to make a 3-way mashup of you, a plant, and the bottom left figure from the original album art,
and somehow it turned out with you looking like a Samoan muppet.
