I've voted for you. How come they don't let residents of Spain enter?
Good luck.

Matt J said...

Yeah, it's strange- only open to select countries. But thanks for your vote!

Ashley Boddy said...

Reminds me of your last post except switch out europe for Norway and switch out you for, well...a troll.

Matt J said...

Yes, exactly Ash-I wanted to make a similar map to my Spanish expedition. If I win a trip I'll do another illustrated map for real!

-Your hairy Welsh Troll

I love these little maps you do, and I just voted for you :)

Matt J said...

Merci Stef- c'est gentil.

bazza said...

I am voting for you Matt. I think your drawings from around Norway would be the best for their promotion!

Matt J said...

Cheers Bazza-most obliged!

Kendra Melton said...

I LOVE your sketches. They're always just so appealing. And I absolutely love that troll jumping off the rock, it just cracks me up. You have my vote. Good luck!

stefan marjoram said...

Beautiful illustration, you get my vote. I'm tempted to enter too - they obviously like my drawings because they've used one on their website! The cheeky monkeys.

Thanks Kendra!
Stefan-is yours the little sketch they put on a notepad?

Renny-thanks for the support!

vetya said...

you are surprising as ever!!!

stefan marjoram said...

Yes, it's not very big - but they should have asked first. It's not the Norwegians at fault though - it's some design agency in London. They really ought to know better.

Matthew Cruickshank said...

I like it! You should go-it'll be just like "Into The Wild".

Did you do the whistling on the trailer too?

Censor me please.

Why does your Troll looks like Professor Neurus without glasses?

Stef-looks like they took your picture down now. You should enter too if you can get the time off work.

M@-if i get to go i'll pack a bag of rice & eat berries

Oscar-it's true! Your knowledge of cartoon design is unparalleled!
