Ben Hansen, the up and coming artist that we love so much, has issued a challenge that we just can't ignore. On his Deviant Art account, he has put up a post stating that he will not put up any new art on that site until his new book The Dependents gets 300 downloads.
Here is the great part: the download is free to people who live in the United States. It is a measly 80 cents if you do not, so that is pretty good, right? You must be over 18 years old to view it, otherwise get your parent's permission. In an economy on the verge of recession, how does it get better then that? Free entertainment from Ben and his friend Levi Skeen- work that these guys have put their hearts into.
If you have a few extra minutes, please head over and read the first issue of The Dependents. Levi has started a contest to help entice you further. Answer a few simple questions about the book and you can get a prize. Here are the details:
"NOW on to the contest for the people that have download the book.It's going to work in 4 rounds. 4 rounds because there is 4 issues. If you win in round 1, you get to try and win in round 2, and so on down the line. You can't not jump into a round if you have not won in the previous round.Here's the catch, YOU have to pay for the shipping on your prize. It would be a good idea to go threw all 4 rounds of the contest before having your winnings mailed to you. Round 1 prize: Limited edition prints from the book."
So what are you waiting for? Head over and make some great guys happy!!
