UPDATE: Extending this through the end of the week! We'll announce a winner on Friday's show...

Bombin' in A.M. With Scoops and the Wolf will soon begin populating iTunes, which means we should probably get some artwork...before we go out lookin' for it, I wanted to give you guys the opportunity to show us what you got! We always prefer to use material generated by the community since you guys are so damn talented.

HAVE AT IT!

I'll sign this copy of Jurassic Park for Genesis (WRAPPED!!!!) for the winner.

People have asked for a deadline. Let's say Monday night?

1400x1400 in JPEG format is what Apple recommends.

The show today was for everyone, right? I don't see why it wouldn't be available for all users.

I want a shirt with a drawing of a wolf's head wearing the scoops hat.

here is my attempt, I have a higher res version if needed....

edit: did a second version with the other name, since there seems to be some confusion.

If I had the art skillz, I would have drawn a wolf mask (or a very bloody beheaded wolf head) with two ice cream scoops underneath fashioned after the jolly roger, and in some Hotline Miami-esque artstyle (or not). If only I had the skillz.

Will there be a wolf and/or scoop themed GB t-shirt? Also, awesome art @graboids!

I think this thing is over. Holy crap @graboids that is awesome. Love the Sears Tower (no I will not call it the Willis Tower) / Statue of Liberty touch.

The Chicago/NY backgrounds are perfect. This is awesome.

I'm predicting that there will be 7 submissions until the first three wolf moon submission.

It's obviously easier and cheaper to get this for free, but can't giantbomb hire somebody to get this art done? Same thing for the youtube channel, I think the stuff from the community is great, but this is still weird to me.

How is it weird? Sure, they're getting work done for free, but they're allowing the community to be involved with the site. That's pretty awesome. Community, man!

Love graboids effort by the way.

Do we have a time frame? I have an idea, but my time is basically booked up until sunday.

Same question here - want to know if I'm pulling an all nighter tonight!

#32 Edited by patrickklepek (4085 posts) -

Damn, that's good!

We won't pick a winner until next week. Let's say you have until end of Monday? We can play it by ear!

@graboids: that's really awesome. My unsolicited advice is to use two different fonts for "Scoops" and "The Wolf" to tell us more about their personalities.

#34 Edited by soupbones (288 posts) -

Here's my entry - trying to capture that early morning feel with the color palette... and with the fact that Patrick looks so god damn tired.

Let me know if you need it high res!

Edit: updated the image, just realized I had some layers turned off. >_<

Edit2: One more time - opened up the space and let the sub title breath a bit.

I really like the idea of sculpting the bomb mascot into a morning sun/sunrise--I think reflections of the A.M. theme in the imagery itself will be warmly welcomed. The more I look at this submission, the more I can get behind its aesthetic.

There are both really great! I think the second one is my favorite (the bomb-as-rising-sun art is perfect for a morning show). Maybe one could be the itunes art, and the other could be the page art?

Too fucking kawaii desu ne.

Perfect.

#39 Posted by TooWalrus (13159 posts) -

@patrickklepek: Hmm, I thought the show's title was Bomb in the A.M. or Bombin' the A.M. I'm not sure Bombin' in the A.M. rolls off the tongue quite as smoothly but hey, it's just a name.

why's Patrick wearing a fedora?

#41 Edited by soupbones (288 posts) -

@phatmac: playing off the "scoops" name. All great detectives and news reporters wear fedoras!

Someone with more artistic talent then I, please steal this idea!

Either one of the current entries is fine by me. Both are fire.

Seconded.

If he has to pick one, I have no idea which is better - my personal preference goes with Soupbones's though (as I love alex just being a fucking wolf).

@graboids: Both their eyes and the cityscapes turn this from great to extraordinary. I can't imagine something being better than this unless buzzclick pulls of a miracle.

#49 Posted by Nightriff (4986 posts) -

Great subs so far, also, really love the show Patrick and Alex. Biggest flaw of Bombcast is it is once a week and can't react to news that hits on a thursday or friday until the next week were it is either forgotten or rushed over. But if you continue the Monday, Friday set up like you did this past week then that solves the problem of delayed opinions from people I want to hear from. Keep up the good work you two

Now I'm confused as well. The YouTube videos, site videos and podcast page all say Bombin' the A.M., while Patrick's post at the beginning of this thread calls it Bombin' in the A.M. I hope Patrick can confirm the actual name before choosing artwork that unfortunately has the wrong name on it.
