Aarting Blankies!

There may or may not be a reason for me drawing attention to's designer blankie toy competition that I entered a while ago ;) I'm merely just posting up my designs since I haven't them on my blog. 

The other winners/designers are from all over the world. You can get more information on all of us at I'm representing Ireland on there anyway! 


Some were just hand drawn, some were visualized in 3d and most were done in illustrator or photoshop. I quite liked that all styles were accepted.  I've included the other entries I sent in. I actually really wanted "Rover and Co." to win and when it went to public vote, that's the entry I got everyone to vote for! 

Ironically, Humble Hootie won! Whats better, the two artists who run Aarting, Melissa and Todd, chose my design (Hooties votes were humble also, as everyone voting was voting for their friends etc) so for me thats even better! ( I'm not the biggest fan of "public votes" on the internet... just because I'm not a collector of random friends on facebook etc., that shouldn't mean I've less of a chance to win a competition that should be skill based. Never the less, I won and I'm so pleased! 

Hope you like them! I loved making them! Feel free to groan at the play on words of "Matt O'Doore" below! hehe.
