Me & Woz, down by the schoolyard

Quick–which of the following doesn’t seem to belong?


Somehow I’ve gotten tapped to serve as a judge with these guys for a digital art contest connected to Macworld:


The Macworld Conference and Expo Digital Art Gallery is now accepting artwork submissions. Images chosen will be exhibited at Macworld being held at Moscone Center in San Francisco January 6-9, 2009.


This competition is open to all Macintosh digital artists in the United States and the cost to enter is $20.00 per artist with a 3-image limit. Artists may enter in either the Student or Hobbyist/Professional category.


I’m kind of tripped out (and flattered) to have any association, however tangential, with a guy whose signature adorned the Apple IIgs after which I lusted in 7th grade.  If the contest is up your alley, don’t delay: the deadline to enter is this Friday, Oct. 31.  More details are on the site.

    Don’t sell yourself short Jack :).. I think you do a lot for the creative community at large and deserve a seat at the table.
    Good luck!

    Hey John!
    Congrats on the honor. I still remember the day I met Peter Max, and all I did was shake his hand.
    And enjoy the moment of celebrity. At least you’re not on Hollywood Squares, sitting next to Alf!
    [Thanks, Jon. Jerry Harris, Photoshop brush/GPU engineer and the guy behind PixelPaint, says that Peter used PixelPaint back in the day. –J.]
