Big Announcement: The Winner of the Great Brownie Scholarship


I think it's fair to say that the first and final annual Zoo With Roy Great Brownie Scholarship was an incredible success. We received AT LEAST half a dozen entries and they were all pretty good; the quality generally fell somewhere in between you know just kind of okay, and OMG-help-find-my-face-it-just-broke-off-no-please-really-where-is-it awesome. More on the latter later.

Before we unveil the winning submission, we'd like to take a moment to thank all of the entrants for their time, effort, passion for the arts, and varying levels of creative abilities. We're big supporters of the arts here at ZWR, and we love to give away other people's stuff. So thanks once again. And here's hoping our next contest, whatever it may be, is at least as awesome as this one. Oh who am I kidding it totally will be.

Also, thanks in general to everyone who e-mails stuff in. We'll get to posting it all eventually. Maybe. Someday. No, really.

But now... the envelope please...

"Alegorico 6, 7, 8" by ZWR reader Clark!

Now frankly, we have no idea what's going on in this MS Paint drawing, and we're not even sure if Clark mean to enter it in the Great Brownie Scholarship contest, but it was by far the bestest thing we received, like, ever. I mean really. Look at that thing.

Celebrity judge Meech.one of the Fightins said via his iPhone:
"This is literally a transcendent piece of artistic genius...the type of work that changes the paradigm on what you previously though possible within the realms of a given creative medium. Also, it has a mexican guy holding a trident beneath a constellation dolphin. Give that motherducker a cotdamn brownie!!"
But seriously, we still have no idea what's going on in this thing, so we'll paste the accompanying e-mail Clark sent along with his unknowing submission:
Here I am in grad school asked to draw what I think some boring 400-year-old Spanish/Mexican text describes as canvases on an Arc d'Triumph (French, right?). Instead of being a lame-o, I went all Paintbrush on my professor's ass.
Waiter, I'll start with the "Yes" appetizer, and then I'll have the most expensive "Please" entree on your menu. I mean seriously. This guy submitted MS Paint pwnage as part of a GRAD SCHOOL project. If that's not deserving of a free brownie, nothing is.

So congratulations, Clark.

You win a fantastic brownie courtesy of SweetSwallows bakery, in addition to internet fame and fortune. If you're reading this, e-mail ZWR your address so the bakery can send your spoils.
