VAMBRACE’S SUPER SQUID SQUAD SQUIVEAWAY!!

You may have seen these delightful squid pillows before and thought, “I sure would like one of those, but I have no money!” Well I have good news for you! You can win a FREE or DISCOUNTED squid! How you ask? Let me give you some details!

WHAT:

There are three prize packages available!

GRAND PRIZE: One person will win the one-and-only Hodge Q. Podge (picture 1), made from the quilt I fashioned out of leftovers from commissions. You will also receive a lifetime of joy from his cuddles, and my eternal friendship.

If you are chosen as the grand prize winner, you may opt to choose second or third prize instead, and another grand prize winner will be chosen.

SECOND PLACE: One person will win a FREE squid commission of his or her design. You tell me what to make and I’ll make it at no (or at least little) expense to you! It can be any size, any color, anything at all. Doesn’t that sound swell?

If you are chosen as the second prize winner, you may opt to choose third prize instead, and another second prize winner will be chosen.

THIRD PLACE: One person will win 50% OFF the purchase price of ONE squid commission. For a large squid, that’s a savings of $35, and for a small, that’s a savings of $20! PLUS your shipping is paid up to $20! Whoa!

All prizes include $20 worth of free shipping. That is, shipping will be free for US winners, and should an international contestant be chosen, you will receive a $20 discount on shipping. While I’d like to offer shipping worldwide on this giveaway, it’s drastically expensive to mail a giant squid body pillow overseas. But you’re still getting a great deal! For international rates, check here: (click)

HOW:

1: You must be following vambrace.

2: You must reblog the original squid post at least once. You may reblog it as many times as you wish, but that will not affect your chances of winning.

3: You must reblog this giveaway post, and you may like it if you so desire. There is no limit to the times you can reblog it, but please be considerate of your followers. Don’t spam them with giveaway stuff! Each like and reblog will count as one entry in the giveaway. You can set up a queue, make a schedule, reblog in waves, whatever. As far as “giveaway blogs,” I don’t really care. As long as your conscience is clear, I don’t have a problem with who wins.

WHEN:

The giveaway will start July 8, 2014 and will end on August 7, 2014 at midnight (Central Standard Time). Reblogs and likes from 7/8/2014 to 8/7/2014 will act as names in a hat, and three names will be drawn on August 8 before midnight.

Winners will be notified by ask box, so make sure your ask box is open. If the winner chosen does not wish to take the prize package they are drawn for, they may decline, and another name will be drawn.

The winning message will include a promo code, which will be exclusive to you. To accept your prize, you must send the promo code to tentacle.club@gmail.com within 24 hours, along with your shipping information. Once you have accepted your prize, it acts as a ticket which you may use at any time to redeem your prize package. If you win third prize or are outside the US, you may send the remainder of the money via PayPal to redeem your prize.

Winners will not be publicly announced, but I will announce that all the names have been drawn and that giveaway is over. 

That should cover it! If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, you may contact me via tumblr ask box or at tentacle.club@gmail.com.

Best of luck to all of you, and Go Go Squid Squad!!

Surrealist painter, Vladimir Kush was born in Russia, in a one-story wooden house near the Moscow forest-park Sokolniki. But after an art dealer from France noticed the originality of Kush’s work and organized an exhibition in Hong Kong. Success surpassed all expectations. In 1995, a new exhibition in Hong Kong at the Mandarin Fine Art Gallery brought more success. In 1997 he had a new start in the USA exhibiting in the galleries in Lahaina, Hawaii and in Seattle. In 2001 Kush opened his first gallery, Kush Fine Art in Lahaina, Hawaii. He now has 4 gallery locations in the USA with future plans to open more galleries around the world. Following in the steps of Salvador Dali and J. G. Ballard, Kush is the heir to the throne of surrealism.
