A Brand New SFG Challenge!

Read carefully for your chance to WIN!

Five years ago, during a conversation with Warren Dotz, the author of the highly successful book, Meet Mr. Product: The Art of the Advertising Character, we struck upon an idea to throw a contest, to which the winner would receive a copy of Mr. Dotz's newest book at the time, Ad Boy: Vintage Advertising with Character. The response to that contest was overwhelming, and the winners were announced one week later.

Recently, I was contacted by Mr. Dotz once again, eager to challenge our motley crew of Sugar Frosted illustrators for the chance to win some more swag! Who doesn't like swag?!

This time around the grand prize winner will win a copy of each of Mr. Dotz's brand new publications -

Dog Food for Thought

In his own words, Mr. Dotz introduces these great new books:
“My interest now takes me to the super cute and quirky world of Dog and Cat food label art. I own the worlds largest collection of dog and cat food labels from the 40’-70’s. I selected the best and boldest and paired them with a modern design and insightful quotes and contemporary observations about dogs and cats (and their owners.) So these are also gift books.  Pet food label art as a book has never been done before!”

I've recently had an opportunity to pour over both of these great books myself, and let me tell you, they are fantastic! You're going to love them! Chock full of the best dog and cat inspired label art out there, a must have for any lover of vintage advertising or illustration!

Interested? Here are the official rules and how to enter!

1.) Simply post your very own original vintage inspired label art (40's to 70's) with a dog or cat theme.

2.) Tag your entry with one of two labels: Dog Food for Thought or Cat Food for Thought. (This is very important so that your entry(s) will be sure to be considered appropriately for the challenge.)

Each piece labelled appropriately will be reviewed, and you may enter as many submissions as you like.

The challenge will end on Thursday, April 24th, 2014 at 12:00 am PST.

UPDATE: The challenge has been extended by two weeks! The new final date for submission is Thursday, May 8th, 2014 at 12:00 am PST. 


Again, the illustrator with the winning submission will receive a copy of both Dog Food for Thought, and Cat Food for Thought.

This contest is open to members of the Sugar Frosted Goodness website only.


At the end of the challenge period, Mr. Dotz will contact me with his choice for the grand prize, which I will then announce on SFG. I will contact the winner for mailing info etc.

Have fun with it!
