Return to Cookie Mountain

Low turnout this week. We had a simple three entries. The lack of entries, however, does not make them any less entertaining!

The contest was such: Using only MSPaint, draw a new album cover for the disc “RETURN TO COOKIE MOUNTAIN” by the band TV on the RADIO because the current album art, while ‘okay’, can’t keep up with the sweet album title.

Cookie Mountain 1: This artist used some shading and some female dominance to literally portray a return to a cookie mountain. I like the redhead and the cookie shading. Well done artist one!

Cookie Mountain 2: Artist two also used shading. This particular mountain clearly has cookie boulders. They may seem harmless and tasty from afar, but up close… deadly. I like the beams of light in this entry. Great job artist two!

Cookie Mountain 3: Artist three made the clever connection to Brokeback Mountain. I find this one hilairous. not only because its a parody, but also because it really is difficult to quit cookies. Very well done Artist three!

Thanks to the three participants! Next week’s challenge will be a bit less complicated!!

Please vote for your favorite in the comments.
Remember, artists can not vote for their own entry! Good luck!

UPDATE: we have a FOURTH contestant!

Cookie Mountain 4: Artist four also went for the literal route of ‘a mountain made of cookies’. However, if you do some research you’ll find that there are claims that the name “oreo” came from a mountain. Hydrox, on the other hand, came up with their name from combining basic elements. Hydrogen and Oxygen. This naming nomenclature failed miserably, which is why Nabisco is #1. Very clever artist number four!

    Cookie Mountain 1: I love the shading in both the background and on the cookie itself. Nicely done.

    I do not vote for number one, and not just because it’s mine (which it is). It’s too obvious. Too literal. I was pretty disappointed with my entry actually.

    Number two is unique, colorful, and sharp. Number three is clever and funny.

    I’m having a hard time deciding between the two. I’ll post my vote later this week.

    I vote for #4. It seems so lonely.

    That story was awesome. Even though I feel Oreos are far superior to any other chocolate wafer and cream filling cookie, I almost started to feel sorry to the forgotten Hydrox. And the fact that I never noticed the hydrogen-oxygen name for so many years really amazes me. With that said, my votes go to:

    Picture #4: 1
    Hydrox Cookies: 1

    The fist pump in #4 gives it the win in my book.
