Okay Okay! I’m buckling under PEEPS Peer Pressure!
Based on the emails in my in box, everyone wants to see PEEPS art (which I was purposely tried avoiding with my previous post) .
The Best Peep Art of 2009
But who am I to deny my readers? So… since so many of the contests have plenty horrendous and amateurish entries to sift through, I found a few really good ones from several different contests and from some flickr sets.
To start off with, The Washington Post has just announced the winner of their Third Annual PEEPs® show, Peeps Show III. Congratulations to Melissa Harvey of Arlington, Virgina for her winning Peep Diorama, NightPeeps (shown at the beginning of this post).
This year, there were lots of Political Peeps entries, Obama Peeps, Republican and Democratic Peeps, etc. There were also tons of American Idol Peeps and reality show entries and many based on popular tv shows like Heroes, LOST, Dexter and others. There were many versions of famous movie scenes and several recreations of big news events like the Hudson plane crash and the Octomom. A surprising amount of Mary Peepins and Peep On A Wire entries, too.
Here are some of my personal faves from the top 40 finalists from the 2009 entries into the “official” Peep Show III for the Washington Post:
