I was slightly considering joining the contest but since I live in Australia and I'm not rolling in money, flying all the way to San Diego just to pitch is beyond me. Well, actually, I can probably dip into my savings to go there but I probably won't. The other problem I have is that I'm not a native English speaker. Although I could articulate my thoughts quite well on paper (or online), I sometimes have trouble verbalising my thoughts specially in high pressure situations. So that's probably another hurdle for people not fluent in English.

Ah well. I still think it's a good contest to join, specially if you live in the US. So, good luck to all of you who are joining. :)

I was about to enter…honestly. But then I realized that I didn't have a lot of cash. In fact, I have NO cash for this.

A trip to California, a hotel room, and the gas to get there…expen$ive at this point in my career. Maybe next year, when I can actually afford to participate if I scrape and scrounge for that year.

Man, you guys make goin' to San Diego sound like a big deal or something.

And now, I suppose, I have to enter something. Though it would be great to have TEO as a TV series, I think I should wait until I'm done with the entire story arc before I streamline it for the idiot box.

I'll just submit my little side project… codenamed “Epiphany”.

I'm still untrustful of all of this. Asking a bunch of comic artists to create ideas for a TV show? What?

Well, I did it. I submitted an entry to the Challenge. And I just made it under the deadline, too.

I already know I won't win with my entry (too non-mainstream), but it would be nice to make it to the semi-finals and pitch the thing in front of live people. I'll keep you guys posted if anything else develops.

I ended up redoing one of my comics from a jam I was in and didn't have the time to finish the other entry I wanted to enter.

I wasn't sure if my submission actually went through however. It kept taking me back to the submission page after I sent in my file and synopsis. I don't think I would win though but I do hope I wasn't late and the submission went through.

Now to collapse from exhaustion. O.o

A friend of mine and I entered as well. I decided to draw a random page from the theoretical comic.

Much good luck to anybody who entered!
