And we have a winner!

Well, someone finally guessed it. And I use the word "guessed" very loosely. But, since there were no official guidelines to violate, we can have no disqualifications. Todd managed to make written contact with the artist(through IM) and found out that Grant would like to be "a shf" if he wasn't able to be an artist. Though he did qualify that with- "but I will be an artist".

Grant enjoys cooking with his mother and often challenges himself to make a dish with a random assortment of ingredients. Eggs, pepper, flour, salt, sugar, and blue food coloring are staples. His last experiment included oats, flour, salt, milk and food coloring. He then put it in the freezer for 3 hours and asked me to taste it. I'm afraid my pallet was not quite refined enough to appreciate it. Though it was some comfort to me when the chef spitting and crying yelled- "why isn't it tasty?!" after sampling it himself.

So Todd, please feel free to tell Grant what you would like him to make for you. You can specify color, theme, materials; anything you would like.

To the rest of you, thanks for participating and I am sorry you aren't as devious as Todd.

Well, no one won. I will give it another day while I think of either clues or a new contest.

The Great Granteeny Giveaway

Grant says it is time for another contest. The winner will once again be able to commission a work by the artist. Last time Grant thought of a number between 1 and 100 and. Iggy Enigma was our winner with a correct guess of 43. She challenged the artist to capture the end of the world as described in the Vonnegut Novel Cat's Cradle and received the brilliant "the World is Changing".

This time the winner has to guess which career Grant would chose if he wasn't a successful artist. Submit your guesses and we will announce the winner on Monday the 7th at 6pm. The winner can choose everything from the medium (collage, marker, crayon, or all of them together) to the color pallet and subject matter.

Good luck!
