First of all, thanks to EVERYONE who entered the tmbg.love/coloring contest. It was fun to see the maps come in from around the world. The polls were open for fan voting during the final four hours of They Might Be Playing They Might Be Giants 2018, and then I picked some personal favorites as well.
All of the contest winners below will receive nifty limited edition “Ask Me About They Might Be Playing They Might Be Giants” buttons!
So what do you think? Should we do this again next year?
Your U.S. + World map FAN FAVORITES!
It may not surprise you that @disinvitedguest got a TON of votes for their meticulously-designed U.S. map submission. In their own words: “Each state is filled in with the album their first request came from. Some are dial-a-song blue since @TMBGdotLOVE hasn't listed them specifically with a played song yet.” That is some next-level, meta-TMBPTMBG stuff there.
@birdiesarecute’s world map entry was simply visually striking, and caught a lot of peoples’ eyes by focusing on the reason for the season — Flans and Linnell. Continentally-great work!
Our U.S. + World map DJ FAVORITES!
There were so many great submissions that it was impossible to pick just two — so I picked FOUR! The color, humor, attention to detail, and creativity of these just knocked it out of the park. Major kudos to @DuckBender, @abigailbash, @ericbolstridge, and @longtallweekend!
