Will you help me choose my MOOS ? Vote for your top five choices and in turn

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
you will be entered to win, not once, but potentially four times!

Here's the scoop: 

Last week, Marsha (Tumble Fish Studio) created an amazing little invention called "The Moo Finder".  It's an easy to use,  digital PNG device that allows you to frame  vignettes within your own pieces of art, sized precisely to fit the dimensions of a Moo Card! And the best part, is that it's free in the April 2012  free zine "The Deviant Muse" available  here. 

Lucky for me, Marsha's timing was perfect and I immediately began to use "The Tumble Fish Moo Finder' to create a new set of business  cards since I only a handful left from my last order.  Time flew, and before I knew it I had created 24 moos....!    The only problem  now is the challenge of paring them down to perhaps an even dozen.

And, that's why I need your help, because I can't decide!  Please?

Will  you help me by spending a few moments to  cast  your vote for your top five choices  in order of preference?  I've numbered each card  above in my  blog header hopefully making  the choices easy to see and read.  I hope you find it "a-moo-sing." 
 
 In turn,   I've tried to create some hopefully enticing  incentives  - three sets of the final twelve moo cards, along with a chance to win a copy of Seth Apter's new book "The Pulse of Mixed Media."



There are  several  ways to enter a chance to win -

1.  Vote for your top five by leaving a comment on this blog post, or to increase your chances of winning, 

2.  Grab the poster above, (right click>Save As) and  post it on your blog with a link back to this post and your name will be entered three more times for a chance to win, or complete 1 and 2 above, and then

3.  Sign up to my newsletter (where I plan to keep readers abreast of upcoming contests, and giveaways)  by leaving your email address in the above right sidebar of my blog and your name will  also be entered to win a copy of Seth Apter's new art book "The Pulse of Mixed Media."

Winners will be announced May 12th, 2012

Thanks for your help and Good Luck~!
(ps - as always, I'll add in a few other surprises)

Thanks for giving us a chance to vote! this is easy for me....I voted for the ones that totally blew me away the first time I saw them.......1,4,5,10,24.
i can't wait to see which ones you pick.

Magaly Guerrero said...

It was extremely difficult to choose, everything is so vivid and thought-provoking *sigh* But after staring, digesting and enjoying for a while, I chose 8, 10, 17, 20 and 22.

Every one of those images made me want to write a story. They are whimsical, original and show a kind of organized chaos that speaks to my heart. Can't wait to see what you'll choose!

Oh, and I've sighed up for your newsletter ;-)

Joanna said...

Well they're all gorgeous! But as you ask......... in order of preference with the first one being my fave, my top 5 are, 16-6-4-3-21

Funny to see that so far we've all made very different choices!

Lisa said...

it's hard to choose when designing them isn't it..the possibilities are endless..especially for a digital design genius like you. Though they are all worthy of a moo card here are my fav's...1, 3, 5, 8, 10.
looking forward to your day on the blog tour!

bockel24 said...

Oh Trudi, that´s hard! But I´ve chosen 1, 4, 9, 10, 19 (if I remember my choice right ...). Can´t wait to use Marsha´s template for my own artwork, but I´ll have to wait a few days, I think. I´ll be back home tomorrow night, and I fear I´ll have to catch up for a week or so ...

amy of four corners design said...

Trudi - what a fabulous collection - I vote for 1,3,6,10,23

So much creativity. Thanks.

Marie aka eklektik said...

Trudi, All your MOOs are wonderful!!! Was so hard to choose, but I went for the one that I though would show the most clarity in detail at that small size!! When one gets to my age, that is an important consideration!!!
So! My choices: 5, 6, 16, 21, and 22!!
Hope this helps!!!

I signed up for your newsletter but don't have an active blog to link to.

Thanks for the opportunity to win Seth's book etc. Such a great giveaway.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I fell in love with 8, 10, 23, 21, and 1 in that order. Thanks for the chance to vote.

I would love to sign up for your newsletter, but my e-mail is not working at the moment and your newsletter would just come back as "undeliverable." Looks like I won't be able to have a chance to win Seth's book.

laurie said...

I love each of the moos but here are my top five :-) My eyes were immediately drawn to moos 18 and 24 for no particular reason other than aesthetics. Moos 2 and 3 evoked magic and mystery. Moo 21 evoked adventure...all qualities for an artist venturing out into unfamiliar territory I think! Thanks for the opportunity to enter your contest and I will post on my blog tomorrow :-)

I love all of your moos! My top five are: 18 and 24 because my eye was immediately drawn to them from the entire series. Moos 2 and 3 evoke a sense of magic and mystery. Moo 21 makes me think of adventure. All of these are traits I think are good for the artist exploring unfamiliar terrain! Thanks for offering this contest and I will post on my blog tommorrow.
