Get your creative geek on, girls and boys. Get those creative juices flowing. Get that competitive bone out and ready to smack anyone that gets in your way, for we are going to have a different kind of giveaway this week.
You know how, as a kid, you wanted your bedroom walls painted to reflect your favorite scene from a movie or cartoon or storybook? Who says you can’t do that as an adult?
I mean, what would you do if you were given the chance to have your bedroom wall look like a section of Gotham City – complete with your superhero(es) or villain(s) of choice? That’s exactly what we’re going to give you, just because we’re nice like that. And because the guys at Wallsauce are being rather generous.
Wallsauce is a UK-based company that specializes in wall murals, especially that of superheroes. As the story goes, Tony’s (the founder) son wanted his own special murals some years back. Tony then proceeded to find someone who offered this custom service, to no avail. Being an IT guy himself, Tony saw a gap in the market. A little coding here and there, plus some negotiations with copyright holders, and a couple of years later, we have Wallsauce.
Make Your Own Geek Wall Mural
They’ve recently launched a make-your-own section, which currently caters to Batman fans. Basically, you start with one of their pre-installed backgrounds, and then you can drag and drop characters to create your own scene. Whether you want to paint a happy picture or you want to go Death of the Family way, it’s up to you!
Your wall can look as simple as this Gotham City construction site.
Or like this.
Or have a bedroom that looks like this.
What you create is really up to you!
So what do we do now?
Instead of the usual giveaway, how about let’s stir up some competition? What we’re going to do is ask you guys to create your own wall mural here.
- Select a background.
- Enter your mural size, e.g. 300cm x 200cm
- Select the characters you want by clicking and dragging them onto the background.
- Position them, size them, and rotate them until you have the artwork you want.
- Click Save and complete the competition entry form.
Once you’re satisfied with your artwork, share it via Twitter and/or Facebook and make sure to tag us, so we can see what you’ve come up with.
At the end of the competition, we will be choosing the best wall mural, and Wallsauce will print it out for you and send it right to your door. How cool is that?
The giveaway is open worldwide.
It starts on Monday, August 11 and ends on Friday, August 15. We’ll announce the winner on Monday, August 18.
