Has Boobs, Reads Comics, Needs Artist!

Has Boobs, Reads Comics: Calling all artists!



The Comic Book Listings Blog:

Has Boobs, Reads Comics, Needs Artist!

Between the hours of 12am and 5am, Jill Pantozzi, 26, is a DJ for the radio station WJLK (The Point). She grew up around Star Trek, Star Wars and Doctor Who and continues to love them even today. She's a fanatic for anything that involves girls kicking butt (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Xena, La Femme Nikita, Alias, The Fifth Element), and she even has a tattoo from The Fifth Element though, she has not told me "where???". (But that's ok as she really doesn't know who i am anyway. And besides, it's not her tattoo i'm here to tell you about. In deed you had better read plum down to the bottom of this post as otherwise you might miss, a Grand event.)

At any rate, in an email i recieved the other day from Matt B. of the Comic Blog Elite, i learned that
Jill has a problem. Disabled by Muscular Dystrophy, she is confined to a "scooter". But that's not her problem. In deed Jill turned her scooter into a Rolling Bill Board when she visited the New York comic con where she discovered, her true handicap. Jill writes;

"At the New York Comic Con this year I made a sign last minute to stick on my scooter to advertise the blog. It read "Has Boobs, Reads Comics TheNerdyBird.com" and it was completely lame. However it did get me a lot of attention, not to mention allow my internet buddies to spot me in the crowds (like the scooter is easy to miss). I've decided I want something better for San Diego Comic Con and I want YOUR help because frankly, I draw like an 8 year old."


Now folks, That's just plain Sad!
And talk about a "Bad Hair Day".

(Jill, if you're reading this, then girl, I'm Sorry!)

But not to worry as our fearless heroine
in true Xena - The Warrior Princess style, has devised a plan.


And better yet, A CONTEST!!!

Jill writes;
"I'd like for you to design me a sign I can put on my scooter at SDCC. Here are my requirements:
*Sign must read "Has Boobs, Reads Comics" (quotes included)

*Sign must read TheNerdyBird.com

*Sign must have the dimensions of an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper

Pretty much everything else is open to interpretation. The sign can be horizontal or vertical. You can stick with just those two phrases and make them pop or you can add art/images along with it. Color designs are appreciated. Feel free to use any medium you like whether it's straight up art, comic art, photography, computer graphics, etc. You can draw an actual "Nerdy Bird" or a depiction of myself if you want, above all, BE CREATIVE!"


For Full details visit Jill's blog site here:

The deadline is July 3, 2009,
so you've got exactly one month to promote or participate.


Well there you have it folks.
Has Boobs, Reads Comics, Needs Artist!
A great opportunity to have Your Artwork displayed at the 2009 SDCC. So break out those art programs and Start Designing and Drawing!

(NOTE: I draw like Jill draws (worse), so you won't have to worry about any competition from me.)

Special Thanks to Matt B of the CBE for notifiying The Comic Book Listings Blog of The Nerdy Bird's contest in an email, of which, certain parts were used in this post.

Jill is an active member of the Muscular Dystrophy Association ( see also: http://www.thenerdybird.com/search/label/mda), and anything that brings attention to her scooter will also help raise awareness for a noble cause -- so keep that in mind and Spread the Word about her Contest!
