Vectorama is a monthly design/illustration competition on Last month, the penguin themed illustration competition was so chill, it was ace! Ninja vs Penguin pwnd the other competitors with her uber stealth penguins.

This month’s theme is Canadian Things! Things like: Hockey, maple syrup, Mounties, mountains, moose, beavers, snow plows, ice, and famous Canadian people, like Avril Lavigne. Feel free to exploit any Canadian stereotype you like. I welcome your ridicule.

Here are the rules:

  1. Your illustrator must be vector i.e. Adobe Illustrator
  2. Your design must include something Canadian i.e. Hockey, maple leaf, bears, snow, igloos, furry seals, unfurrry seals etc.

What you win:

  1. Vector Sized Glory!!!
  2. A coveted adspace on my sidebar which will display your winning design and link to your website for one month.
  3. A whole lotta link l0v3 and straight up repekt!

**Send your 500×300 entries to mostlylisa *at* gmail *dot* com. You have until Friday, May 30th to get your entries to me.**

Blog fans and general internet peeps will vote for the top 3 Vectoramas. Then, the winner will be picked by two master illustrators: Me, obviously; and Pasquale, some Australian animator that knows nothing about about Canada.

Sharpen your vector tools, because you are going to need them, eh?
