Thanks to all of you readers, we’ve been growing every month and we’d like to say, “THANK YOU”!  Thanks for reading, thanks for commenting, thanks for spreading the word around about our little blog.  And to celebrate, we’d like to drink a big, fat bottle of champagne…I mean, give away some free stuff to our readers!

So, here’s the deal.  To be entered into the contest, all you’ve gotta do is submit a comment between NOW and the end of the week (Friday).  Let us know what you think of OK Great or just say “Hi”.  Be sure to leave us your email address so we can get atcha!

Over the weekend, we’ll randomly select a winner from all of the comments and come Monday, we’ll announce the name of the lucky guy or gal who’s won our wonderful prize package!

THE GOODIES:

A 7″ made by our buddies over at Horse & Buggy Press, an awesome letterpress shop in downtown Durham.  Look closely on the backside, that’s 166/300.  Limited Edish!

On snap!  Horse & Buggy again.  This time with a beautiful set of 5 letterpressed cards.  Like Nicole said, “everything looks better letterpressed”.

Recognize this guy?  I’ve posted about him a couple of times before.  This is an 8×10 original print and a set of animal pins from our friend Ryan Berkley.  What a guy!

Next up, a nice visual history of political stencils.  Interesting stuff!  Donated by author Josh MacPhee & the Just Seeds Organization.

A handful of stickers and a t-shirt from local t-shirt company Mini Cassette Tees.  If you don’t like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, I don’t know if I like you.  Just being honest.

A magnet from…us.  If you’re local, you may have seen this popping up all over downtown.  Throw this one on your fridge and represent Flywheel Design & OK Great!

Lastly, we’ve got this little sticker, also from Josh @ Just Seeds.  Woo!

We’d like to give a super big thanks to all of the artists who generously donated their goods for our contest.  Ryan Berkley, Mini Cassettes, Horse & Buggy Press, & Josh McAphee @ Just Seeds.  Please visit their respective sites and show ‘em some deserved love!

BONUS:  Repost this giveaway on your blog and let us know about it!  You’ll be entered into a second contest where we’ll be giving away a mystery gift pack.

GOOD LUCK!

Another Side of Ryan Berkley

So, I’ve already posted about Ryan Berkley and his illustrations of Kenny.  But I was looking at my living room wall last night and my eyes crossed a little portrait of a Great White Shark in a suit that Kristy had given me as a birthday gift this past year.  Makes me laugh everytime.  And I remembered, Ryan Berkley has an extensive series of these portraits.  And they’re awesome.

I mean, a BIG collection of portraits.  Siamese cat, red fox, giraffe, raven, ducks, geese, raccoon,  meerkat, caterpillar and on and on.  Name an animal, and Ryan Berkley probably has them wearing a tie.

If you’re into series’ of anything, like I am, Ryan’s Etsy shop is definitely worth checking out.  I don’t know why this dude doesn’t have a proper website.   Write him an email and tell him to work it out.

That last photo has nothing to do with the series of portraits but you know what?  It’s a chameleon on the run from the cops and an old hobo w/ roses shuffling down the street.  So that’s fine.

Kenny Bathtime & Ryan Berkley Illustration

Kenny is a superhero. Kenny is a gentleman & a scholar. Kenny is an enigma wrapped in a paradox with a mystery bow on top.

Look at that guy. I challenge anyone to name a superhero, or a villian for that matter, that could enjoy a bath more!

You can learn more about Kenny and his epic story here & you can find some really cheap prints by illustrator Ryan Berkley here.
