Alternative Tentacles and Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine are proud to announce a winner to our design contest! Congratulations Thomas Walsh of New York! After much deliberation by the band, your design was chosen as the winning design and will be featured on the upcoming tour! Thomas Walsh will be provided with copies of his design on a shirt, he will be paid a royalty on each shirt sold by the band on tour, and if possible we will be extending him guest passes on an upcoming concert on the tour.
As you can see here, we received a ton of amazing artwork, and all of us at Alternative Tentacles were very impressed! We tried very hard to avoid the flaws of the "crowd sourcing" art contest, and rather have this be a way to expose a number of artists to a larger audience and possibly to potential clients. To those of you who were not selected, we will continue to feature your artwork here and recommend any one who would like to contact you directly to you! If you would like to link a website that features more of your artwork with your posted design, please send us the link! In fact we already have a few cases of other bands already contracting the artists featured here for paid work (seriously!), so please send us any contact information you would like included with your artwork!
If anyone sees an artist they would like to contact for possible work, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you in contact with the artist.
Just to clarify, any artwork that contains any mention of Jello Biafra, Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine, and/or Alternative Tentacles remains the property of Alternative Tentacles...HOWEVER, if your artwork was NOT selected, the artist is of course allowed to remove all references of Jello Biafra, Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine, and/or Alternative Tentacles from the artwork and use it for any other purpose.
Congratulations and thank you to all our artists and to especially to Thomas Walsh.

From Fuse TV:
The long career of Jello Biafra knows no bounds. Along with fronting iconic punk band the Dead Kennedys, he's a celebrated spoken-word artist, ran for president in 2000 and generally sticks up his middle finger at anything crappy. He's also an avid record collector, and thus the star of this latest installment of Fuse's digital series Crate Diggers.
