Artist Deathmatch 2.0: Who Wants to Win 30 Dollars?

The Summer of the Illumi-Nerdi: The Artist Deathmatch 2.0!

Last night, we planned for a huge celebration. Originally, we posted a video to announce that our blog hit 30,000 views in 7 months But the video failed to work. Anyways, thank you everyone for all of your support and we hope you are ready for the Summer of the Illumi-Nerdi. 

Also, we are announcing that we are officially taking submissions for our Artist Deathmatch 2.0.  Our first champion, Steven 'Sash' Scott, will not be participating. He stated, "unfortunately- in part because of the first Deathmatch" and because of his really awesome skills, he is too busy working on projects. For the new Artist Deathmatch, we decided to make a few changes.

1. We are no longer using everyone's favorite superheroes and super villains. 

2. Besides an interview and advertising of your art, the winner will receive $30 dollars. That is 1 dollar for every thousand view we have received.

3. The artists will be designing characters created by The Illumi-Nerdi. The Artist Deathmatch 2.0 will consist of five rounds. We will provide the artist with 2-3 characters and a scenario. We will give each artist a full description and profile of the characters (physical attributes and personality traits) so that he/she can get a comprehensive understanding of who each individual is. Each character is one piece of a larger picture, which will be created by the artists in the final round. 

The first round entries will be due in two weeks, June 12, at 10:00 PM EST. We will announce the first round details by June 6, so please get back to us as soon as possible.

If you're interested in participating (who could say no to free advertising, an interview and 30 smackaroos?!) contact us at
