I've got your weekend mapped out for you. You're going to spend the next two days working on a character design for this contest, submit it on Monday, win, and then text me throughout your special day with Todd McFarlane.
That's right, a contest. Stan Lee and Todd McFarlane want you to design a superhero for Stan's eponymous Stan Lee Foundation. Here's the crazy video, evidently filmed in McFarlane's top secret Spawn room.
"Talenthouse will facilitate introductions for the winning designer with the film and television studios and social gaming industries. The selected design will be made into either an action ﬁgure or sculpture of which The Stan Lee Foundation will make a limited number to give away to speciﬁc donors of the Foundation.
"The winner will also be presented with an award by Stan Lee at Comic-Con San Diego 2011 and will spend a day with Todd McFarlane at his art studio production facility, Todd McFarlane Entertainment, Inc in Tempe, AZ. Travel and accommodation to San Diego and Tempe, plus tickets to Comic-Con will be provided for the winner.
"The top 100 highest voted submissions will receive a Prismacolor Premier Illustration Markers Set.
"The 20 highest voted submissions will also receive an official movie poster from one of the Marvel movies signed by Stan Lee."
Submit your design to Talenthouse by Monday. And win. That's the important part. Win the prize. You get to go to Comic Con. Maybe an action figure based on your guy. And maybe, just maybe, a game of catch during your time with McFarlane. A cool opportunity, so get sketchin'.
