To drum up even more support for the Coan family, Steven from Megabolt has created an amazing contest. If you haven’t yet read about the cause behind this project, please check out the post from the other day. Here is some info about the contest:
“With the help from Mitch at OMGPosters we were able to team up with 16 printmakers to present this unique contest. Starting today (Monday), if you purchase a Jeff Coan Benefit Megabolt Shirt for only $13, you will be entered into a drawing to win over 25 prints from printmakers across the globe. Many of these prints are sold out and rare including Todd Slater’s LOST print, Guy Burwell’s My Morning Jacket poster (courtesy of Jojo’s Posters), Tyler Stout’s “Welcome Home” brushfire art print (courtesy of Mitch at OMGPosters). See the full list of artists below. After the contest is closed i will randomly select one person to walk away with this amazing prize pack. Thank you all so much for supporting this cause. It means more than you know to myself and the Coan family. Thank you.” – Steven Kasprzyk
Here is the list of participating artists, websites, and galleries:
Kevin Tong, Todd Slater, Tyler Stout/Mitch Putnam, Jason Munn, Jes Myszyk, Brian Kasprzyk, The Bungaloo, Mark McDevitt/Methane Studios, Rob Jones, Sean Lunn via JoJos Posters, Rhys Cooper, Rick Reese, Jason Teegarden-Downs via Delicious Design League, Ray Frenden, Phonebooth Gallery, Jorge Ortiz.

EDIT: Here are the contest results:
After only 2 short weeks the Megabolt Benefit shirt being on sale we have sold more shirts than we could ever imagine. Thank you all for your support with this project. I’d like to send a special thanks to Mitch from OMG Posters for helping with this cause. If it wasn’t for him and his website we wouldn’t have sold half as many as we have. With that said I’m very excited to announce the poster contest winner. Since we had some many printmakers generously donate prints I’ve decided to give a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize out.
3rd Place receiving a print from Kevin Tong: Troy Brookins
2nd Place receiving prints from Jason Munn and the Phone Booth Gallery: Christopher Schultz
1st Place receiving prints from an absolute ton of people with over 15 prints total: Jaynee Peterson
I am still waiting on about 10 posters, so it will be a week or two. If you ordered a shirt today or earlier they will be shipped by Feb. 7th
