Septembers been and gone which means I have to snatch the Art Blog crown from last months winner, give it a little spit and polish and pass it on to a lovely new home.
This months theme was “Childhood Hero” and we’re a diverse bunch here at Boulder with heroes ranging from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to WWF wrestlers with Han Solo and The Fall Guy in between!
We even had a new record breakingingly (erm Oxford Engligh Dictionary anyone???!!!) young entrant in the shape of 3 year old Jonah who honoured his Daddy as his hero, awwwww!!
Loads of brilliant entries as always but you know the deal there can only be one winner
Ta dah ….. congratulations Mick Plummer!!!
Yep, Mick couldnt make up his mind so instead of one childhood hero he just about narrowed it down to five!
His impressive Bruce Lee, Robocop, Peter Venkman, Batman and Superman montage only gets more impressive when you find out he did it with a broken flippin collarbone and an arm in a cast!! Mick you’re our hero!
Mick celebrates his win with a Desktop Gumball Machine full of sweets, yum!
This months runners up were Aine McGuinness and Manuela Gualtieri so if you fancy checking out who their childhood heroes were click here:
Also watch this space for the spooky results of the Octobers theme “Halloween”
August was a very L-O-N-G month financially, (damn you 5 week months with bank holidays tucked up inside!!) but a very short month in the world of the Boulder Art Blog.
Yes our July winner Jenny was crowned slightly later than usual on the 13th of August due to the demands of Julys amazingly successful Animation Art Show and has barely had time to bask in her success when we are already replacing her, sorry Jen.
Augusts theme was “Reimagine a Movie Poster” and as always we were inundated with brilliant entries but there can only be one winner and it was……..
The flippin brilliant Gillian Comerford!!
Gills super duper cute take on the E.T. poster reigned supreme and saw her skip away with a pocketful of HMV vouchers the lucky thing.
This months runners up were Nick Lennox with his Bladerunner inspired poster and Simon Kelleghans King of Kong tribute and if you wanna check out them or any of our other brilliant entries please click here:
Septembers theme is “Childhood Hero” so watch this space!
The staff of Boulder Media were left shocked and stunned yesterday by a daring daylight break in by …………….. a squirrel!
The squirrel was discovered in the Production Office on the 1st floor of the Hawkins Street HQ and reaked havoc for approximately half an hour by jumping on computers, climbing shelves and using humans as spring boards until a brave member of staff Jamie Teehan managed to over power and apprehend the intruder.
Ok I realise it is the 13th of August and a little late to be crowning the winner of Julys Art Blog however there is a ligitimate excuse what with all of the Boulder Crews artistic time and effort being channelled into July 29ths redonkulously successful Animation Art Show.
Anyhoo a few hardworking people stepped up to the challenge and created their very own “Monster in my Closet”. The monsters ranged from the cute and cuddly to downright scary and when the people spoke they chose the very lovely Jenny O’Brien as their Dr Frankenstein and winner of Julys theme!
Big shout out as always goes to our runners up Nadia Cardoso and Aine McGuinness for their super cute monsters and if you wanna check out theirs along with all of the other entries for July click here please.
Also want to make a special mention of Honourary Boulder Crewman Billy Crinion who submitted his first art blog post and very good it was too so thanks Billy!
Jenny has been crowned the winner, her picture goes into the Hall of Fame and shes bagged herself her very own Uglydoll for her troubles.
If you are interested in seeing the usually mild mannered July winner Jenny O’Brien turn nasty check out her alter ego Trauma Thighs and the rest of the Dublin Roller Girls, rolling into a town near you!
Also keep an eye out for the results of next months theme “ Re-imagine a Movie Poster”.
