A call for geeky art!

Awesomeasaurus wall art!

Friends, artists, dorky craftspeople, lend us your ears hands!

Recently we heard a call for artistic assistance over the internets from our friends the Karpiuks who dearly desired dinosaur art to adorn the bedroom of their soon-to-be-born geekling, Liam. We boosted that signal via Twitter and Facebook and the response was staggering. Awesome dinosaur art began rolling in almost immediately and now little Liam's room is completely decked out and ready for his imminent arrival.

A C17 Carrier, Just like the ones Christina and her coworkers work on. How Majestic!

Well, we need your help again, friends. We've heard another call.

Christina is a geek stationed overseas with the Air Force working hard in a completely undecorated room. Every day she sees the same, boring, unadorned walls staring back at her, slowly wearing away at her morale as she does her part to keep the world in working order. In a bid to retain her sanity she emailed us for help, asking us to cover her walls with awesomeness.

She needs us. She needs you. She needs monkeys.

In her own words:

Monkeys would actually be a good theme, maybe working on planes or turning wrenches. That is primarily what our guys do over here is work on the bigger planes that we have like the C17s, C5s and the KC-135.

Did you just feel that tiny spark of inspiration?

You don't have to be a fancypants artist or even really know how to draw. All monkeys will be appreciated and equally sanity-saving.

Please to be sending your (non-naughty, sfw) monkeys to:

Christina Nemeth
376 EMXG/QA
APO AE 09353

As soon as she starts getting submissions she'll send us pictures so we're eagerly awaiting this too, because honestly, who doesn't like pictures of awesome art?

So that's about it! If you have any questions or think we need to add more details please comment below and we'll find an answer for you.

May the art (and the monkeys) be with you!

meaningless icon! Can't draw, but I can probably do something in Photoshop. Definitely happy to send something to support our Airmen. (Yes, she's still an airman. That's the proper term. ;P)

meaningless icon! I think this might just be the key to remove my Artist's Block (that exists, right?)!

meaningless icon! Do we need to frame these masterpieces? I'd hate to send something she couldn't use.

meaningless icon! Hi Nerinea! We'll ask her for an email address and if she wants digital work as opposed to actual, physical monkeys sent to her and will let you know!
Raevyn W. said this 1223 days ago.
meaningless icon! No need to frame anything unless the moment moves you, RelativeTheory! All sorts of art is welcome, even stuff that wont fit into frames.

meaningless icon! Nerinea, If you've got digital arts you can totally send it in to us at replybot at thinkgeek dot com and we'll forward it to Christina!
