Sup fellow ukers! I'm throwin a lil contest out there for the folks that are incapable of puttin together a vid (due to lack of camara, skills, or confidence -- Robbyah falls in all those categories).

The contest: put together a piece of artwork that includes a uke and "Ukulele Underground" written somewhere in there. It can be of any medium: clay, drawing, painting, etc. This is somethin I did while in Maui:

The cutoff will be May 31st, 11:59pm (PST).

The prize: A UU shirt of your choice,

Playing for a Change CD/DVD http://playingforchange.com/ (really, truly, awesomely cool... check it out)

And two bottles of Jufran banana ketchup, so you can attempt AG's Pilipino spaghetti.

Worth the contest? We'll see =]

aaauuuuuuriiiiiite!

In total there's only 6 people in this picture. All have on different costumes and what not. All I wanna do is play for small groups of people that want to listen, that's what this captures. :D

Soo, today the weather have been awesome here in Norway :D So I was playing a bit outside when I suddenly felt a bit inspired to make a photo for this contest ;)
(P.S: How many entries can I make? :P)

Here it is:

IamRobbyah
05-12-2009, 09:40 AM
You can enter as many times as you like! Let me just be clear though: I'm looking for a piece of artwork that depicts an ukulele. So although I really enjoy (and will include) yours and colmes' entries, what Toucan Mango has submitted is the closest thing to what I'm looking for. Krabber's fruit uke is really awesome too, but he's missing "UU" somewhere in the pic (maybe someone might wanna give him a helping hand).

Hope this doesnt disuade you or anyone else... I've really enjoyed and appreciated the entries thus far!

Anyone skilled with a paintbrush? Pencils? Crayons? Pen on napkin??? Keep em comin!

Sigh. When I took this photo, I didn't realize that it had to be art. That is what I get for not reading the rules correctly. Oh well. I know my entry doesn't count, but I'm posting it here anyway.

This is my uke in the sand at Shipwreck Beach in Poipu, Kauai. Made the U and U with orchid leis. It actually isn't the best shot from my trip, but the only one where I had the UU showing...

Well, I think I am probably the biggest dork on the planet for doing this, buuuuuut.....

Nah, man... It doesn't even have to be contests! Just spreadin' the ukulele love through art! There are enough artistically-minded people around here that it would certainly be worth having and lots of fun to browse through... although I won't say no if someone wants to hand out prizes. :)

Oh man. There sorely need to be more ukulele comic books.

i kno, i meant just a basic ukulele art thread but people can start contests and put in prizes if they choose or like we could have polls for the best art of the month and then year and such.

Nah, man... It doesn't even have to be contests! Just spreadin' the ukulele love through art! There are enough artistically-minded people around here that it would certainly be worth having and lots of fun to browse through... although I won't say no if someone wants to hand out prizes. :)

This was exactly my mindset. There are so many great ppl on this forum that spread so much love, that I wanted to give my contribution. Alas, I'm a super poor college student, so my prize is pretty humble. I'm glad ppl enjoyed this thread, if anyone else has somethin they wanna share, please feel free (although I'm afraid there'll be no prize).

In that case....

Here are two that I did for that poster contest... seemed cheap to try to doctor them for this... plus, candy ukuleles are just MORE FUN!

The first one's a painting, but the scanning really kind of destroyed it. The second one's brush/adobe illustrator...

EVERYONE!!!! well, kinda... If I was a baller like deach, then I could justify that statement, but in the meantime this will have to do. Everyone that entered receives two bottles of jufran.

But the grand prize winner izzzzzzz

Oh, and btw, when I got all the bottles, the checkout clerk looked at me insane...

I sheepishly looked back at her and said, "ano? hehehe" o_0

All in the name of making jufran the unofficial UU sauce.

Dude, wow. You are generous. That's a lot of jufran (and a lot of shipping)!

Congrats, Toucan Mango! Very well deserved for some lovely craftsmanship!

Its too bad this contest wasn't held after the UWC. BenMealer did a great drawing of Russ_Buss with a couple of Ukes that surely would have won. Congrats to the winner....better luck next time Ben. :shaka:

If I could, I'd deach shirts as well... But no can do... I think everyone deserved to win in this contest.



Those of you that I sent PM's to, make sure to send me your address and name.


I'm glad everyone enjoyed the thread as much as I did. Hopefully it wont die even with the incentive gone.

*cough* reputation points *cough* hehe

Disclaima:

I'll be sending out the small bottles of jufran (hopefully sooner than later), and I always make mine with large bottles. This might be appropriate for those of you not used to sweet pilipino spaghetti, but you may wanna cut back on the regular sauce when u make it.

Update: Toucan sent me his piece of art! Included was a matching uke holder!!! They are truly works of art. I've been too busy to take pics or mount either of them -- shoot, too busy to even hop on hea and say thanks to Toucan :eek: So, maraming maraming salamat Greg (Toucan)!!! Will post pics soon.

I've sent out a few prizes to some of you that have given me ur addies. I'll ship out some more next paycheck. A few members have yet to give me addresses, so I'll be checking in with some of you guys. Hope you all enjoy the jufran! ... and thanks for contributing to a great site!
