Print give-a-way

I'm giving away two Ryan Berkley prints to one lucky MM reader this week!

Free goods just in time for the Holidays. Whether these are for you, or as a gift for someone you care about, these guys will be enjoyed. Anyone who's ever clicked on Etsy, browsed arty craft blogs or visited an Urban Outfitters has come across Ryan Berkley's animal portraits. Now's your chance to score my two favorite guys: the karaoke singing bat and hungry billy goat.

5x7" -Both are digital archival prints created from original pen and ink drawing. Comes with backing in plastic sleeve just for you - all ready to pop in a frame. All images by Ryan Berkley Illustration

To enter just leave a comment stating what you plan to do with the winning prints.
For extra bonus points-- anyone who leaves me a Haiku will be offered 2 additional entries to win.
The winner will be announced next Tuesday December 8th.
Goodluck!

m'lodies!! What a GREAT giveaway...wow. I would keel over if I won these.
My brain is foggy bottom right now so I might have to get back to you on the haiku..haven't written one of those babies in years..yipes.

I think I would want to keep these but it's Christmas so that is selfish of me, I think I would give one of them to my sis in law that just scored a new apartment,the goat would brighten up her tiny,lovely bach pad.
That BAT is all mines though, mwaha.
shite,sorry for my usual long ass comments, geez I get carried away.

i was just about to pop on over to Etsy and pick up the bat one when i saw your tweet. he's my fav, too! i purchased a nice little frame for him the other day so they'd already have a home! and i'm not sure if you meant a haiku about the prints or just one in general but here goes!

glittering body
shuddering fingers tugging
empty grateful fist

OH! EM! EFF-ING! GEE!
Melody, please please pick ME!
I'd be so happy!

I plan to glue these inside each one of my eyelids so I never have to stop looking at them. But seriously, I'd probably but them in gold frames and hang them on either side of the scrolly mirror in my bedroom. ♥

A goat in a suit?
A goat would not wear a suit.
He would eat it first.

If I one I would hang them with my faux-taxidermy moose (ie child's souvenir from Canada).

How much I want you
handsome upside-down bat
gracing my kitchen.

LOVE these prints, and love the blog!

Heist said...

LOVELY! I'm going to take both of them and put them on my fireplace surrounding your "Self Portrait" you gave me a while back...how's that for kissing some ass?!

Jade said...

I will place these prints

Huzzah!

odd-toed ungulate
scales vertical cliffs when trapped
whereas the bat flies

{i'm especially taken with the goaty one. i'll frame it and hang it next to a print we have of a victorian couple holding giant trout. the bat one will give me nightmares. so i'll give it to my sister, who is obsessed with stellaluna.}
