wow… Great pick… Congratulations @kotulsky buddy.

Although I liked the Cat version :slight_smile:

Why not give away some cool gifts to other Top 5 designs? May be they worked hard too… We also love to see other designs were in consideration :smile:



You deserved it @kotulsky. Although i love your second entry more :smile:

Congratulations kotulsky! :clap:

Great job, congratulations to the winner!

Not as good as my intergalactic battle cats and invading space lizards, but a worthy winner nevertheless.

Intergalactic battle cats are in a league of their own, @SpaceStockFootage, we just didn’t think the world was quite ready yet for such awesomeness. :wink:


Yes, I assumed that was the reason!

I just discovered your plot for world domination. If you flip the cats page vertically and invert the colours, it spells out “Vote SpaceStockFootage for President of the World. He is the greatest leader ever known, and an excellent guitarist.” I have to say I was surprised to read that, but best of luck to you! :+1:
