Necronomicook - final images / reflections

Uploading the images here, as well as two high res ones, to look at them on other machines...check for final corrections. As my officemate Phu would say, "Uuuuugh, I'm so over it."

High res 1
High res 2

Even so, this was a fun and humbling experience. Lots of great entries this year. Lots and lots. Hot damn! Wow.













To arrogantly quote myself from last year's judging panel...

"In any friendly contest there are those who enter to win and those who enter to have fun. While it's impossible to know the motive of each contestant in Dominance War, that sense of fun -- of play vs. competition -- is communicated in the finished work. Every entry that perked my interest reads as a labor of love. This, I think, is what most concept artists wish their work to be : not mere behind-the-scenes pre-production (though that is certainly core to its purpose), but something they can take pride in by bringing a piece of themselves to. Something that can stand alone, connect with others and bridge the gap between the fine and the functional."

Come on, Necronomicook! Baby needs a new Ipod Touch!

I fuckin love this. The Food Network would be far more interesting if you introduced a little Cthuhlu into the mix. Like, actually bloodshed in Kitchen Stadium.
