The Gay Gamer Giveaway™: Ashley Anderson Edition

Atlanta's one and only Ashley Anderson recently surprised me by sending me the poster--of his crazy, sprite-filled collage titled "Cabana Fever" (below)--that was showcased in a recent issue of Young Foxy & Free magazine.

As much as I love the poster, I thought it might be cool to offer it to one of you via the second Gay Gamer Giveaway™. After mentioning this idea to Anderson, he said he'd send another so I could keep one for myself and give one away. Awesome, huh?

A few details about said poster before I get to how you can win it: It's approximately 18 inches by 23 inches. Also, it's been signed by Anderson. Oh, and it'll be shipped rolled up and in a tube (as opposed to folded and stuffed into an envelope).

Winning this particular giveaway is just as easy as the last one, by the way. Just leave a comment below between now and the end of the day (let's say 11:59 pm Pacific Daylight Time) on Friday, May 25. I'll announce the winner of this oh-so-fabulous poster on Saturday morning.

Those who don't win may want to check out Anderson's society6 shop, where art prints, stretched canvases, stationary cards, iPhone skins and t-shirts featuring this image can be purchased for as little as $12.

I'm in. The magazine was gone from all the bars here in Atlanta before I could get one. :<

You live in Atlanta, warp? Huh! Anyway, your entry has been duly noted. Good luck!

Hi,
I feel bad that this is my first comment on your blog and it's also for a giveaway. I work at a game store and use your blog on the reg for customer referrals to retro games. Keep up the good work.

Hey there, PnT Uptown! You shouldn't feel bad about not commenting, or about making your first comment as part of a giveaway.

Anyway, that's awesome that you mention my blog to your customers. How awesome is that? :)

Other than that, your name is in the hat for this giveaway. Best of luck to you, too!

I want that magnificent poster for my magnificent wall! I cant remember where/when I saw the other one like this (with an octopus love story or something similar?) It might have even been on this blog. I love what this artist does with sprites!

Bryan Ochalla said...

OK, Max, your name is in the hat, so to speak. I also love what Ashley does with sprites, of course :) Anyway, good luck to you!

I'd love to get my name in the hat, but not sure if you're willing to ship internationally? Shipping might be a bit steep for a tube.

Viewtiful_Justin said...

NO WAY! I'm so in!

Bryan Ochalla said...

Your name is in the hat, Anne! Honestly, I have no idea what it would cost to ship internationally. Let's go for it anyway :)

Bryan Ochalla said...

Okie dokie, Justin. You're in!

I like the lady in the left corner without that carefree look on her while all that crazy sh*t is happening in the background.

Bryan Ochalla said...

Hey there, anonymous. Yeah, I like that lady, too. For some reason, I thought she may be imagining the whole scenario -- you know, like all of the stuff happening around her exists in some kind of huge thought bubble. Or maybe she's just a bit ditsy :P

BTW, I'm guessing this means you don't want to have your name in the hat for a chance to win this poster? If that's not the case (and you DO want the poster), please leave some sort of name/username that I can use to identify you, OK?

Eric said...

aww, the poster is super-cute. :)

Bryan Ochalla said...

It is, isn't it, Eric? BTW, I'm guessing this means you want to be in the running for it? Or do you just like the looks of it?

This is gorgeous and covers all my criteria for Things That I Love, namely, it has So Much Fruit.

Bryan Ochalla said...

Kyle: It's nice to meet someone who shares my passion -- that being pixelated fruit! Anyway, consider yourself in the running :)
