We'd like to thank everyone who entered both the drawing and contest but as Sean Connery once said in a horrible spanish accent, "there can be only one." First the drawing was picked by Lord Henry the Duke of Paducah himself. All tickets were swirled into the Vader Helmet and the youngster was dangled overhead to pick out the winner. Congratulations to Alexa Roitman, who walks away with a picture lp of George Clinton!!
This was truly a tough call, we got some amazing submissions and spent a long time trying to figure out who to choose. In the end we're proud to announce Derek Diorio as our winner. Check out the amazing design below and keep your eye out for the hoodies 'cuz once they're gone, they're gone.
But that's not all kiddies, at the end of the night we had to name a runner up based on how cool the design was. So since the hoodie can only be one person, we'll be releasing a set of Missing Link Records Postcards designed by Brian Woida! Everyone's favorite local moustache put together a set of cards based on his incredible lp prints and we're pickle tickled to have them in the store soon! Can't show you all of them of course, but here is a sneak peak at one of them...
Oddly enough, our contest winner is also our artist for this month's artsArcata! Come check out some of the hubbub here this friday night, we'll be open 'till 9 with our artist on hand for the beginning of the evening. Here's a sneak peak at some of the work.
