Congrats to Steve Wilson, the winner of this the Pinback Project: Comics button design contest! His button idea, “Catfish Weinerdog,” was selected by this month’s guest judge, Jeffrey Brown, as the best comic-inspired design.
Asked about the story behind his entry, Steve said, “I like to imagine fictitious characters for nonexistent short stories. I envisioned this design as the cover of a book about the adventures of the two characters.” A graphic artist and designer by day, Steve’s been a fan of Busy Beaver for years since finding out about us through a Threadless event back in the day. Steve said that he decided to enter this month’s Pinback Project contest because “it’s always good to get back to my first passion…[of] drawing for the fun of it.”
A big thanks to all those who entered their great comic designs in this month’s contest! Stay tuned for the next installment of the Pinback Project coming in August!
