Flight of the Conchords Poster Contest.....FAIL

SO, this is my FOTC poster fail:

I finished fixing my FOTC poster, that I created a long time ago for Hand Letters Class,
and then I decided to make another FOTC poster. Both would've been submitted to their contest which ended today.

Unfortunately, though it's probably my fault for procrastinating (but I find I make better work when I have less time for a project, or at least my motivation's higher) I missed the deadline.
I went on there at 11:55 p.m. only to find out that I couldn't upload it.
The deadline was 11:59 a.m. not 11:59 p.m.

Actually, I'm not sure if it's entirely my fault because I'm pretty sure I'd read p.m. in the rules, and other people actually posted the same issues.

I thought about submitting my posters to the ineligible art poster section, but then I'm thinking, I'll just save them for next time around. I'm not terribly disappointed since at least it got me working on things today, and my second poster is my favorite since I whipped it out around 6:00 p.m....so total amount of time is 6 hours...which is not so bad.

Some of the patterns and images were provided by the FOTC contest, like the squiggly starts and clouds, FOTC logo, and blue,yellow circle designs. Apart from textures, the rest are my drawings.

All in all, a good day's work.
