Pigeon Love NY

"Pigeons Love NY" is one of our newest designs, but I wanted to shed some light on the inspiration for this design.

Recently NY councilman Simcha Felder
has proposed that the city impose a $1,000 fine for anyone caught feeding pigeons.... come on? He figures that this will control the population of pigeons in New York? If I were to list the top 5 things that people identify with New York-- our dirty feathery friends would have to be on that list!

Here's my list:

1. Times Square
2. horrendous traffic

3. street meat and pretzels

4. skyscrapers and...


Did you know that our state bird is the Eastern Bluebird... WHAT? I have never seen an eastern bluebird walking around on the sidewalks of New York, but I've seen plenty of pigeons!
These foul birds have been a fixture here in NY for over a century. Our new state bird should be the Manhattan Pigeon! Send a letter to City Hall demanding to make the pigeon our new state bird.

[dramatic pause]... Daniel M. from Chicago, IL
Congratulations on winning our first contest! You have won the ALPHABET tee and a rather interesting "random object" that I hope you have room for it on a shelf... hmmm, what can it be? You have to send us some pics for the blog after it arrives!

Be on the lookout for the next contest.... I already dropped a hint about it last week! Peace

Quickstrike CONTEST!

So you might be thinking, "What is a 'quickstrike' contest?" Well a quickstrike contest is a contest that happens without much, or any, warning. I might hint about it in blog posts, orders, e-mails... anywhere! We love contests here at Random Objects! I have been hinting about this contest for a while, and I have been getting e-mails asking about when it was coming. Well, the wait is over... IT'S CONTEST TIME!

The premise of the contest is simple: try to correctly identify all nine fonts in the "Alphabet" design. Here is a detailed pic of the design...

Whoever gets the closest to the correct answers by March 4 will win a free "Alphabet" tee and "a random object"... win to find out what it is! A winner will be selected and announced here on the blog on March 5, 2009. send entries to:

Good Luck, and be on the lookout for clues to other upcoming quickstrike contests. Peace
