‘Shop Contest: Happy 10 Years Stephen, Winners!

Illustration for article titled 'Shop Contest: Happy 10 Years Stephen, Winners!

Last week marked 10 years for Kotaku’s big boss Stephen Totilo and to celebrate we took one of his most famous photos and had some fun with it. I got a nice mix of video games, timely Game Of Thrones creations, and other shenanigans.

Our winning image this week comes from Ihsus who decided to dig back into Kotaku’s past and created an edit of a classic image. Owen Good, clad in his Selk’Bag 4G Lite and pushing his wheelbarrow.

Also, can you believe that image was taken in 2011? Time flies, as they say. Seriously, 2011. What was going on in 2011? The final Harry Potter film was released. Discovery Health became the Oprah Winfrey Network. And the Nintendo 3DS released around the world. What a year.

(Also sorry about the later than the usual posting of the winners. That breaking news about Call of Duty and some other issues on my end pushed this back. But I didn’t forget. I never forget my dear readers and their art.)

You can check out the original post to see all the entries, but here are some of my favorites.
