Snow Globe Showcase, Round 2
We have selected designs from our Facebook Fan Pictures to showcase in Round 2 of the Snow Globe Showdown, thank you to everyone who contributed artwork, the images are amazing. We have had so many great designs added to our Facebook Group, and encourage you to check it out here.
The designs are posted in no particular order, but we thought it would be fun to kick things off with Mokshu, I don't know how those little monsters will get out of there!. Great work everyone, it's been fun to see what you've come up with. This is one of our best rounds yet!
Because of the fantastic response this week, submissions are open for one more week!. Get your entries in before Sunday 2nd of October 2011 for a chance to be in the final showcase! More information on how to participate is at the end of this post.
"Why this Snow Globe? Just for the fun, and because I am a little insane ^^. I included my Lapantoufle, and customized this globe."
"My name is Rafal, I am not a profi, but very keen on vectors. Therefore I wanted to share with you my "Snow Globe". It was supposed to be a kind of joke. The idea behind this graphic was: "The world is not enough!". Sometimes I feel like that. Probably everybody does. So take a look, and have fun! It was done in Inkscape."
"Lately, I've been playing a lot of Candyland with a certain six-year-old. I don't mind letting her win, because I believe that stacking the deck so you get Queen Frostine on your first try EVERY time is a rite of passage for six-year-olds. And, sometimes, she'll make sure I get Princess Lolly : )
"I made this lazy little angel just for fun, i hope you like it ;)"
"Well my name is Jerry Hernandez I am a graphic design student.This little guy is called Haplo :) and we just caught him on his daily walk."

"Hey all! My name is Andrei Verner. I'm a psychedelic artist and designer. This globe presents the current state of my consciousness with a small "Are you dreaming?" reminder for all lucid dreamers. I run a psychedelic art and design blog, so you can check it out ;) andreiverner.com Cheers!"
"Hey, thought you would be interested in my sister's work. She had just finished the college of technology and design in Vilnius, starting her way as a freelancer designer, searching for her own style...

"I am a graduate designer who is still learning. Trapped can mean a lot of things - in life/career/relationships/finance etc Well here you go my style of the snow globe :) "
"Hola! I wanted to vector this today just for fun and at the same time saw an opportunity to display it here!"
