Celebrate Two Years of Ananka's Diary with FABULOUS PRIZES!

You may have noticed that the TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY of Ananka's Diary is quickly approaching! I've been trying to come up with an exciting contest to celebrate. Just when I thought my brain had turned to mush, it finally came to me!

Every week, I receive at least one note containing the same question: Why isn't there a picture of Iris on the website? It was a tragic oversight, I'm afraid, and now that she's officially an Irregular, it's time to commission a portrait.

Which is where you guys come in! Whoever creates the best portrait of Iris McLeod will be named winner of the TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY CONTEST!

Don't think you're out of the running if you can't draw. The portrait can be an illustration, collage, photograph, paper mache sculpture, or anything else you can come up with. Photograph it or scan it and send it to kikistrike@gmail.com by MARCH 4, 2008. (I'll also post a physical address for those of you who don't have a scanner.)

Three finalists will be selected, and the winner will be chosen by the readers of this blog.

So enter now! FABULOUS PRIZES await you!

Cool, I can't draw (or paint, or sculpture, or really do anything artistic...) but my sister is really good at artsy stuff! Maybe I can convince her to try!

Can I do it anime-style? ^^ Iris would look really cute (sorry for using that word, Iris) with Clamp eyes. (:

Hmm... I guess it would help if I was madly in love with Iris. xD

YAY I actually drew something! haha.
Did you say we'd get to vote on them?

Oh darn...I just realized that if you posted your address I wouldn't be able to try and find you myself, rofl!

I was wondering that too(if you could do manga/anime style)
You've read/watched stuff by Clamp? I have too! I like RG Veda and Tsubasa.

Sweetness! I so have to find time to draw her! SQUEE!! Great idea ananka! I do love Iris, she's pretty awesome!

Although styles are cool, you must use experience and other animes to plant yourself into, but you'll need your own style to grow.

Cupcake Doll: We are not ageist at Ananka's Diary! ;)

Raph: Anime style would be great!

Kad: By collage, I mean you could cut out pictures, etc. from magazines and make a completely new images.

ookamishinzui and kitty: I've watched some Clamp. I used to watch Cardcaptors, but stopped a while back - sometimes I watch Angelic Layer and Tsubasa Chronicles, though. :)

I like lots of anime. xD I think my favourite at the moment is Negima. It's so funny and clever. I just entered a competition to try win the box set. *covets*
I miss it, now that they took it off YouTube. ):

Another favourite is MoonPhase. I'm collecting the DVDs. ^^ It's about vampires, but it's really complicated and also involves cat ears. xD

And so many more!!
