Win Workshop with Crystal Brush 2013 Winner Jeremie Bonamant Teboul!

And the winner is....

Jeremie Bonamant Teboul!
Well, the title of this post is kinda 'over the top', as we announced the JBT workshop giveaway in Berlin before we knew he would win the Crystal Brush 2013 in Chicago. 

Nevertheless, I am happy to announce that one of my personal favorite during the voting session has won this years 10,000$ grand prize at the Crystal Brush.

With this piece we can truly say that 'Jeremie is back!' after his 2 year cycling trip through Africa. This is truly his style that we all know him for. 

What makes me even happier is the fact that our personal hero Enrique "Emuse" Vezasco Sanchez took home the second place in the event. 

His entry was actually my personal favorite for the title this year, but comming in 2nd is not bad either. 

If you are a follower of this blog you know that we helped Emuse to go to the crystal brush by supporting his rather unique indiegogo campaign for funding his trip. That's what I call 'return on investment' - go go Enrique! *does the 'la ola'*. 

I still have a workshop with Enrique pending. Now I just need to learn spanish in order to understand how he works his magic :D :D

Mola, mola!

Third place goes to Raffaele Picca from the Massive Voodoo Crew with his scratchbuild 'Zombie Giant' diorama. The hours he must have invested in this... incredible!

Here is the CMON site with the Crystal Brush Winners in all the categories. All pictures (c) by Crystal Brush/CMON. 

A lot of people raised concerns that the competition at the Crystal Brush this year was 'not the strongest' to say it mildly. Yes, there were a lot of entries that would not have a chance of winning this event - but then again I think that, if you look at it with an Olympic spirit, being part of any event matters. The top entries were all worthy of winning this year's event and with this, I think that Roman Lappat, this year's head judge, still had his work cut out for him. I think he and the online voting community did an excellent job!

In closing, I would like to congratulate all participants for taking place in this years big-money event. 

AND I would like to remind you that you can WIN a workshop with this year's Crystal Brush winner Jeremie Bonamant Teboul, here in Berlin, for FREE. As in: Does not cost you a penny to attend. Yeah, cool, huh? (Read this blog entry and leave a comment to participate). The winners will be drawn tomorrow evening. Stay tuned for MORE FREE WORKSHOP giveaways. That's right! MORE. FREE. 

Have a great beginning of the week!
