Vote For Your Favorite 'Build A Body Out Of Bands' Illustration
Here were the rules: One could use ALL of the band names -- by building a figure out of strategically placed words -- or he or she could choose a specific band name for each body part. (For instance, a body with a Radiohead, Flaming Lips and Nine Inch Nails.)
I received seven entries, all of which are shown below. Some of the artists sent me a list of the band/musician names they used; others did not. (It wasn't required.) I decided to let the pieces speak for themselves, because it seemed more fun to try to figure out the hidden band names.
The winner will be featured on the front of the NPR Music home page, his or her piece will become the Monitor Mix blog header for a week, and he or she will receive an NPR Music tote bag full of fabulous prizes. So please review the illustrations below and then vote for your favorite. Voting will close on Sunday, Dec. 20, at 5 p.m. ET. Thanks to everyone who participated!
