'Hoh boy, 'hoh wow~!
It's about that time, folks !!!
August happens to be my birthday month, and my birthday happens to be at the end of August (the 30th) and it also also just so happens that all I want for my birthday is to see some new art !!!
But, man, just viewing new art isn't enough?? MY HUNGER GROWS AND THE ONLY WAY TO SATIATE MY APPETITE FOR NEW ART IS TO INFLUENCE ITS PRODUCTION WITH A CONTEST !!!
A BIG CONTEST!!
WITH VAGUE RULES
AND OCs !!! (my favorite!)
SOMETHING THAT SAYS,
"WOW, THIS IS LIT"
"AM I INVITED?"
"WHERE ARE MY PANTS???"
"ARREST THAT MAN!!!"
"GET TO THE POINT ALREADY!!! >:("
A PARTY CONTEST!!!
