Case-Mate released a $US0.99 cardboard iPhone case as a tongue-in-cheek, recession-appropriate gesture — and people bought them, drew on them, and now they've got a contest to see whose creation is best.
If I'm going to be honest, I kind of expected more from this contest: There aren't many truly impressive drawings submitted as of now, and the current leader in votes is a virulent anti-Obama nutball creation that looks more like the bumper of an Alabama ute than an iPhone case. A drawing of Obama as Heath Ledger's Joker? What does that even mean? You can't be an anarchist and a socialist at the same time, they're completely conflicting ideologies. Take a political theory class, Cardboard iPhone Case Drawing Man!
Anyway, I think there are enough badass illustrators among the Giz readership that could really bust out some impressive entries. I'd love to see what you guys can do — this contest is ripe for a Giz onslaught. Go forth, readers! [Case-Mate via CNET]
