October sees the release of Scribblings of a Madcap Shambleton – the collection of Noel Fielding‘s art being prepared by Noel and Dave Brown right now.
We’re sure Boosh fans worldwide are dying to own a copy, and thanks to gentlemen Brown & Fielding, TVO peelers could be in with a chance to be in it!
Simply send a passport style photograph of yourself – [By this they mean, head and shoulders like you’d do for your passport, nothing more, nothing less – you can smile if you want to!] – to email@example.com by 00:01 on Monday June 13th (last thing Sunday night!) for a chance to be included in Noel’s book in some way, shape or form that will have to remain top secret for now.
Try to ensure your photograph is passport style – with a white background, and a shot of your head & shoulders only, just like Dave’s photograph here.

The aim is to create a piece which will hopefully feature inside Scribblings of a Madcap Shambleton, provided the work can be completed in time for Dave & Noel’s looming deadline.
The Boosh Boys can’t guarantee the piece will make it into the first edition of book, but if it doesn’t, they will be aiming to get it out there in some way further down the line – possibly as a TVO exclusive, so stay peeling to find out more info.
We must stress that it may not happen at all – but they’ve had an idea and want to see what kind of response they get, as well as how much time it takes before they can commit to it going in… but let see how resilient they – and you! – are, shall we?
Naturally, this is a competition of sorts, and we cannot guarantee that every entry we receive will be included in the book – but this is a chance to quite possibly become part of the scribblings for all eternity. For full terms & conditions, see the small print.
If you’d like to preorder a copy of Scribblings of a Madcap Shambelton, it is available now in The Velvet Onion Amazon Store and will be available on October 6th. TVO hopes to bring you more news on the shiny things nearer the time.
THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ENTRIES!
All photographs MUST be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 00:01 on Monday June 13th 2011. ONE photograph per person only, or your entry will be disqualified.
