Converse Update

Remember my Converse animation submission? Only about a week or so after I finished my animation (perhaps even before they received my CD and documentation) I started to notice that there were no longer any consumer created commercials airing on television. I also noticed that their gallery hasn't been updated since before I started working on mine. This might establish that I came in just a little too late on the timeline. I had resigned myself to the fact that it was a swell experience but I wouldn't hear anything back at this late date. I didn't win, just to make that clear before I continue on with the story.
I got this envelope in the mail. I didn't recognize the sender so I assumed it was junk mail, it turns out it was the umbrella company for Converse. I open it up, there is some art work, it opens up, there are some pictures of Converse shoes and I honestly thought it might just be an advertisement because I definitely have been a lifetime connoisseur of the ole Chuck Taylor. Wait a minute, "Shoe Gift Certificate", why am I?... "Thanks for contributing your time to Converse and enabling originality. As a token of our appreciation, we'd like to give you a free pair of Chuck Taylor shoes." Oh, there's my reward. I swear I'm not laughing.... believe me? They have tiny little squares of my options, they are all the solid color variety. I personally favor my more exotic cheetah, houndstooth, pinstripe, and silver variety but I could use a black replacement, I wear them all the time, they go with everything. Or maybe red would be lively? : ) -click image to enlarge-

Yeah! Chuck Taylor's forever! A sweet consolation prize. :)

I hope all is well with you and Jim, my friend.
