And the winner of “Crawfish 2016″ is…
It can sometimes be really difficult to narrow down designs to the Top 9, and then to the Top 5. On one hand, you have some designs with just fantastic, amazing art. On the other hand, you have some designs that are extremely witty and current. And sometimes you can hit the sweet spot with a design that has all of the right elements: great art, great concept, and it’ll look great on a tee.
Congratulations again to Matt Phelan, who won the top prize for his “Louisiana Superboil” tee shirt design. Matt’s hand-drawn art is always spectacular, and we loved the concept. We think this design will look awesome on tee shirts, tanks tops, etc. This is Matt’s second first-place finish in a row, and his seventh Top 5 finish.
Coming in second was “Crawfish Campaign” by Tara Schwaner. We loved this artwork, and the patriotic spin. We think crawfish are a national treasure. This is Tara’s third Top 5 finish.
Third place goes to Stephen Feehily for “The Craw!” Stephen’s art is always top-notch. This is Stephen’s ninth Top 5 finish.
Phillip Trammel scored fourth place for “Trap Queen,” and fifth place goes to Matt Phelan for “Krawe du Fish” This is Phillip’s third and Matt’s eighth Top 5 finish.
Honorable Mention goes to Lucy Williams for “Something for Everyone.” It was hard to pick one of her designs, they were all good! We could definitely see this design on a tank top. This is Lucy’s first Honorable Mention.
We don’t yet know what the theme of our next contest will be — stay tuned. Got an idea for a theme? Or a design that doesn’t quite fit a theme but you want to see it on one of our shirts? Shoot us an email here.
