I’M A WINNER — Eat your hearts out.
Yes that’s right folks, I submitted a drawing for the Kojima Productions Fan Art Contest back… uh… whenever that was, but now the winner’s are finally announced, and it turns out I made the cut with something as bizarre as Christopher Walken dressed up as Solid Snake. The folks over at the KP Report talk about it before any other ones, so listen to it for their comments and love, and (my favorite part) the fact that Yoji Shinkawa actually picked it, and acknowledged that he was instructed by Kojima to make Snake look like Christopher Walken originally. He said it made him reflect on his old days. What an honor indeed.
I actually forgot I submitted it, but apparently enough people over at Kojima Productions enjoyed it to bump it up to #10. Of course, this probably means that they just had a tiny number of submissions, especially when you see the pathetic scribbles that also made the cut, but hey, a win is a win, and I’m proud. Personally I NEVER thought it would win, but now I can look forward to getting a special bandana and T-shirt. Having Shinkawa appreciate the thought of it is the best prize I could have asked for, however.
This is the drawing:
And again, here’s the podcast where they compliment it!
