Preparing for Thursday Update

It's almost here! I've finished all but a few small details on the Blockhead Ghostmas Special; the cartoon will be done tonight, but I am waiting until Thursday to release it. I need time to make sure all the little glitches are worked out.

Thursday is the day I've been hoping to dedicate to major site updates. Tuesday is nice because I have the weekend to make up time if I am behind, but Thursday is just far enough into the week where everyone could use a little entertainment. Also, Thursday is the last day to submit something for the Official Ghostmas Contest! After that, I'll be putting the entries into a cartoon, they will be judged by Blockhead himself, and then the cartoon will be released on Halloween day.

If you haven't contributed to the Ghostmas Contest yet, you still have time...but not much! The deadline for entries is the 25th. The winner, determined by Blockhead, will have their work featured on the site and will also receive an UNDISCLOSED PRIZE. For contest rules, check this topic.

Halfway to Ghostmas!

We're nearly up to Halloween, which means another zany adventure from Blockhead as he pursues his favorite made-up holiday, Ghostmas. Along with the cartoon, the entries for the Official Ghostmas Contest will be reviewed by Blockhead himself. And if you can, print out a few Ghostmas decorations. Don't look away, YOU'LL MISS IT!

Ghostmas Decorations!

To prepare you guys for Halloween, I've created two little Ghostmas decorations that you can print out and stick on your door, window, or whatever you want. I'm going to be making a few more over the next two weeks so I hope you check back! All decorations will also be available in the Downloads section.

Ghostmas Sign
Hanging Blockhead

Note: Try gluing or taping the Hanging Blockhead cutout from the bottom nail of the Ghostmas Sign cutout. It works better if you have a metal hole-punch fastner for him to swing from!

Don't forget about the Official Ghostmas Contest! I've received quite a few entries so far, and there's still plenty of time until the October 25th deadline! Blockhead himself will discuss all the entries in a Flash cartoon to be released just after Halloween.

And to prepare you for the upcoming Ghostmas cartoon, here's a screen capture of a cell in progress:

Merry Ghostmas!

Official Ghostmas Contest

It's time to celebrate Blockhead's third Ghostmas, and this year YOU have the chance to get involved!

To participate, all you need to do is draw a picture of YOUR perfect Ghostmas, save it as a jpg, bmp, gif, or png file, and then send it as an email attachment to with the word Ghostmas anywhere in the title. Don't forget to include the name you would like to appear beneath your submission in your email! Entries will be accepted until October 25th, and please, no multiple submissions!

Submissions will be judged using the following criteria:
1) Relevance - Does your work look like it represents Ghostmas?
2) Originality - Is your work just a copy of existing Ghostmas ideas from Episodes of Blockhead, or is it a new and creative idea of your own?
3) Would Blockhead Like It? - Imagine that Blockhead will see your work. Do you think he would agree with your vision?
4) Effort - You'll be competing against many other participants, so try to show that your vision of Ghostmas is stronger than theirs.

The winner will be announced when Blockhead's latest Ghostmas toon is released at the end of this month, and Blockhead himself will pick the winner! That's right: Blockhead will review every single entry, and then declare who the King/Queen of Ghostmas is for this year.

The contest is officially on, so get started! I'll announce additional prizes over the course of the month :) Here is a link to the official thread.
