If there's that few I'll do one now :)
Any guidelines or themes that I need to stick to?

I've got one in progress, trying to figure out how to transfer it to the compootah so I can e-mail it. (No access to scanner and a webcam would be horrible image quality.)

I guess I could draw one too, and I think I may have a scanner handy....
But is there a theme or just a random comic?

I finally got a good idea for this about an hour ago.

I've started to diagram it out and I can start the first-draft drawing today.

Significantly less weird than I used to be. Still pretty weird.

I'll have to browse the comics I've made for xkcdsw for ideas.

Are those okay to use if I really like one I made?

There are still no more submissions. I have 2 plus mine.
I'll be really busy and offline a LOT the next five days.
Final deadline, this isn't getting extended, is midnight EST, Sunday the 19th. If it's not to me by then, it's not getting included most likely.
Get off your lazy fingers and DRAW! :D

Well, I give up. I wait no longer. I put together the 4 that I had received so far plus mine. It's sent off on it's way so hopefully it's ok, I didn't want to wait until tomorrow to send it. I waited as long as I could for everyone...but it's been like a month now so if it's not to me by now, you're too slow!

Hurray! Thank you to all of you who responded. All, 4 of you...
I know it's not much, considering the interest people showed but oh well, a nice gesture is a nice gesture all the same, hopefully he'll enjoy it. Also, I think a congrats is in order for Amy for unreasonable patience and pretty much holding up the entire project.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Sungura, ThickNavyRain, you guys are awesome for taking the initiative ^_^
I'm thankful I could be a part of this [..may have gotten carried away with the colours, tehe]. Hope this cheers him up -

Happy holidays!
