As you can see, my parent’s neighbor has some truly impressive parking skillz. He parks like that all the time and apparently without any trouble according to my mother. As a rather mediocre driver this is almost incomprehensible to me.

It’s time for our yearly Sandra and Woo and Gaia fanart contest! Click here to see the winners of the fanart contest 2011 and the fanart contest 2012. Unsurprisingly, you have to include at least one regular character of Sandra and Woo or Gaia in your drawing. Other types of artwork are permitted as well.
Unlike most other such contests, ours comes with some nice prize money for the five winners whom I will pick from all contestants. Since we received several great entries of equal quality in the last two years, I made sure that the difference in prize money between the 1st place and the other places isn’t too large.
Please send your entry in an e-mail with the subject “Fanart Contest 2013” to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can attach the file to the e-mail or link to it in the e-mail text body. You must submit your entry before Monday, 22 July 2013. If you have a website, you should put a link to it into your e-mail.
Additional information about the contest:
It’s often impossible for me to predict the reaction of readers to a new strip. For example, I expected a massive backlash when I posted the short story arc where Larisa dressed up as a pedophile for Halloween. I wrote the story already in 2011, but postponed it for a year since I was afraid it would upset too many readers. However, the comment sections of those strips remained completely calm. In contrast, I had absolutely no negative expectations when posting the current strip Ruthless?. But at least two readers have now vocally expressed their intention to stop reading Sandra and Woo because of it. Which I find strange and unjustified since the strip has unquestionably a positive message. It also already has almost 100 comments, a feat usually reserved for strips specifically about Christianity (the only certain hot topic apparently) or Sandra kissing Cloud ;).
In other news, I removed the social media widget which was used very rarely. I also made visited links turquoise so that you can see more easily which pages you have already visited.
