A few months ago, The Jim Henson Company teamed up with Talenthouse to open up submissions for a Fraggle Rock design contest. I’m still a little confused about if said design is intended for a t-shirt or all of the merchandising planned for Fraggle Rock‘s 30th Anniversary. Apparently, so were some of the artists who contributed, because some of the entries are… interesting, to say the least. There were over 500 entries in the contest, and way too many to look at… but that can only be a good thing! Our pals over at ToughPigs.com have pulled 50 of their favorite entries out, and most of them are fantastic, so be sure to check them out! We here at The Muppet Mindset don’t like to do the exact same thing… so instead, we’re only showing off 10 of our favorite entries! (Totally not because we’re lazy.) But we highly suggest checking out all of the entries (including the super weird ones).
Steve Troop: “DANCING, DANCING, DANCING Your Cares Away!“
Kenny Durkin: “Fraggleidoscope“
Pupi Herrera: “Gobo and Sprocket“
David Vordtriede: “The Ties That Bind“
Rhett Pennell: “You Cannot Leave the Magic“
Heidi Amhold: “It’s All Connected“
Ashley Moore: “30 Years and Still Irresistible!“
James Carroll: “30 Years of Fraggle Magic“
Christopher O’Connor: “Fraggle Rock GOLD“
Noel Schornhorst: “Fraggle Rock of Ages“
Voting for the contest is open until August 22nd, so head on over to Talenthouse and cast your vote!
