Our February “Count the Presidents” Contest ended last night at midnight and…..we received a lot of very close answers, but most of you fell for a few tricks. Once we realized the mistakes some of you were making, we released a few hints yesterday via Twitter and Facebook, but alas, there were no correct answers submitted. Some of you included Ben Franklin in your count in the Mystic Rites of the Eastern Shame Girl photo. While Ben was an all-around smarty pants, he never became President. Other contest entries didn’t include any of the Presidents featured on the money blocks in Mystic Rites. That Eastern Shame Girl really is a foul temptress, isn’t she?!?! The total count of Presidents for all three photos was 26. There were 8 Presidents in Grand Opening of the Glam-o-matic (Making the World a Prettier Place to Be™), 7 Presidents in Rebecca’s picnic hike is spoiled by the end of the world, and 11 Presidents in Mystic Rites of the Eastern Shame Girl. To check out who, in fact, was a President, we’ve circled them in red for you in each photo. But wait, there’s more! As a consolation, we’ll extend the discount price offered to correct answer entrants for the three photos through the month of March. We’re also offering 20% off the 11×11” Album Edition versions of Mystic Rites and Grand Opening as well. Thanks for playing, everyone!

Hello, art lovers! We have something really exciting in store for the month of February. In honor of President’s Day on the 21st, Wind-up Dreams is hosting a contest. Yes, our first contest ever! We’ve selected three photos from the “Plastic Prophets of Vinyl Redemption” series that are full of presidential goodness, Grand Opening of the Glam-o-matic (Making the World a Prettier Place to Be™), Rebecca’s picnic hike is spoiled by the end of the world, and Mystic Rites of the Eastern Shame Girl. Your mission? Count the number of presidents you can find in each one, and send us the grand total for all three photos. Counting rules: 1. Count the president each time he appears, even if it’s more than once. 2. Include in your count all forms the president may prominently appear. 3. You have until midnight Pacific time, February 28th, to get your answer in. You can send in your answer a number of ways, via Facebook message to John, direct message on Twitter to @johnpurlia, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. And what do you get for your efforts, you ask? One randomly selected winner with the correct answer will receive a FREE Album Edition (value $25) of his or her choice! ALL entrants who submit the correct answer will receive $10 off for each president who appears in that Limited Edition print (of the three included in the contest). If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Let the counting begin!
