aaaaand the winner is......  
THE WINNER, as always in these sorts of contests, is the Ishida fandom! Thank you to all who participated in the Ishida's Presidential Birthday contest. Our lovely panel of judges, the bleachness mods and myself, have arrived at a decision, though, as to who is going to get the special prize of the Bleach 2013 manga calendar featuring the new Ichigo and Ishida drawing by Kubo-sensei.

We've picked "Fight in the Darkness" by agenttexas because of its gloriously iconic Ishida expression and the overall quality of the work: http://bleachness.livejournal.com/725241.html   It's the sort of Ishida we'd love to see in the manga.  Will the winner please PM me with your personal address? I have the calendar on pre-order from yesasia, and it goes on sale on Nov. 30. I'll ship it to you when I get it!

A special honorable mention to creepykitty11 's entry for being so clever, technically awesome, and making everyone smile on America's election day: http://bleachness.livejournal.com/724639.html   I'd love to display that art, and yes, "He Wants You" was my favorite title ever.

Again, thank you thank you thank you to everyone and happy birthday to me (tomorrow Nov. 19). Hurry up Thanksgiving Holidays here in the States so I put down the grading pen for a moment, eat tofurkey (no real bird for me), and count my blessings. One of the many things I'm grateful for is the fun and love this fandom still brings me.  Also.... ISHIDA, YOU'VE GOT A QUINCY ARC! IT'S BLEACH'S FINAL ARC AND IT'S A QUINCY ONE! HOW AWESOME IS THAAAAT!!!!

Good art is good, and yeah, it touch some points that we as Ishida fans wish to see, and yeah that's my favorite Ishida type, the one who struggles and don't give up and keep that determined, almos desperate but fiery expression.

Ooh and lovely Creepy Kitty, she did awesome too *_*// I laughed so hard for the details x3333

Congrats to the winners!!!

oh, I like to host all entries at my website (which is sadly behind in construction at the moment due to RL stuffs) but what I meant by that remark is---

One of the judges said that she liked your art so much she would like to display it as a real life poster in her home. I was thinking the same thing. It would make a nice poster. Is there any chance you can put it for sale as a print on DA?

OMG! Thanks so much guys! I really am thrilled to have won! I loved seeing all the other entries, they were all so gorgeous! Plus it was really nice to see some Ishida art for a change, I miss him so much in the manga. I really hope he returns soon.

I'll PM you soon! I promise! ^^

AgentTexas, I am so proud of you! You truly did capture such a dark side of Ishida so richly and skillfully! It's very exciting! I hope you share more arts with us during the rest of the year.

Happy Birthday to Debbie! I hope you got to take a break from everything and enjoy the day! You deserve lots of rest! <3
