November Art Theme: Nose Art

UPDATE: The contest is now over. You can see the entries here.

And the art theme for November is . . . Nose Art. To enter, simply email me your illustration by midnight California time on November 29. The best design will win a $100 Threadless store credit. And I will also give a $25 store credit to one randomly chosen participant. You may send as many entries as you'd like, and this contest is open regardless of where you live. No nudity, please.

The contest is not limited to any particular subject matter, but for some inspiration, here's a roundup of Star Wars-themed nose art:

Wampa from a metal ARC-170 Starfighter.

Kowakian monkey-lizard and Wampa nose art from various Lego sets.

Princess Leia by John Eaves.

Ahsoka and Twi'lek by The-First-Magelord.

Twi'lek and Slave Leia by Spencer Brinkerhoff.
