Anyone may submit a design response to the challenge. You may enter as often as you wish. Post anytime. Critiques and comments are welcome throughout the game, from participants and spectators alike. Smack talk is encouraged.

Winner take all, no holds barred. May the best designer win.

"stenciling it somewhere (legally)"

And can we get even more points for stenciling it somewhere illegally? ;)

I will see what I can do about actually painting it somewhere later this week. Could look funky - illustrator drips and overspray along with real drips and overspray.

Christian: Sorry if this is dense after 17 weeks but: where are the winners announced, and what do they get? I look at the retired challenges but I see no final results.

There's no real 'winner' par say. It's more peer consensus and congratulatory remarks for a challenge well done from my understanding.

Good, so nobody has done anything like this yet.

(No points for recognizing what this is based around.)

That caketype shirt looks yummy! The overspray reminds me of powdered sugar on that dark shirt. Now you just need some frosting :-)

Last minute entry: This sketch was laying around all week and I forgot to cut the shapes out. So there's no t-shirt or graffiti'ed wall but this is the page with the letters cut out. I want to go use the stencil on something! Time to get some spray paint.
