And the winner is…

Best of 2011 records

Well folks, the day has come and passed. We collected some 854 names in the month of January, threw them into our giant bin (see: random number generator) and pulled out the name of one lucky winner for the #GreatestMusicContestEver.

While there is a 99.9% chance you did not win, you should take solace in the fact it was won by an illustrator in Pittsburgh. Because few things scream “defying the odds” more than an artist in the Steel City. In case you missed it, here's a chunk of what she can expect. Better luck next year!
