lets get this contest going: submit a drawing of the #Android logo/mascot doing something awesome and win a free tee! http://bit.ly/andrdteeless than a minute ago via Brizzly

    What about those of us who have no artist ability what so ever. CURSE these METAL hands of mine.

    CCan’t draw but had the idea of symbols. Andy with his chest doors open and arms outspread. Chains on his arms and legs with the oem brand-names on (to show them stifling openness and update speed)

    then in his chest a ketchup bottle with its lid off. (showing he is, at heart open sauce) then an xda logo on his head (showing he thinks about the community)

    and lastly the androidandme antennas (cause well androidandme are awesome)

  3. My entry. I drew this a while ago, but never really did anything with it besides mess around in Illustrator with it.

    Hopefully it will remind us all of the good times during the summer.

    I didn’t get my father’s artistic ability. I still like my idea of the andy world domination, lol, I just wish I could draw it better….plus I was in my Shakespeare class and my teacher asked what I was doing….luckily he’s an android fan as well.

      I also had an awesome idea: Andy and the Apple er…. apple are on a mountaintop with dark skies and lightning above. Andy screams “There can be only one!” and beheads the apple, thus gaining it’s power. In fact as soon as I get some time, I may make that for a shirt.

    Is it me or does the shadow on the left next to the android in mchambers1′s entry look exactly like a penis and two testicles?

    There’s no way that’s an accident.

    Dammit. You had to a competition in the middle of the night didn’t you! :(
