    I LOVE fake mascots! I’ve been making up schools and mascots for a while now, so I was pretty excited to find out that it’s the topic for a contest now. Instead of using one of my old designs, I re-drew my “Badger State University” logo for this contest. I hope you all like it.

  14. Luminosity Says:

    It is my consideration that this is not in a sense so much a fake mascot as a true mascot.
    Since the sword sings as it moves through the air, or it is devastatingly silent.
    The sword is a representation of ideas.
    The sword is yin and yang in it’s eternal representation it keeps peace and if used unjustly can also create great suffering.
    Life has few promises though.
    So I think that we must seek our rational virtuous nature while continuing to seek understanding.

    Educate and empower.

  28. Caver Annie Says:

    My fake mascot entry is for “Dog Ladies United.” I was inspired to make this design because I work in dog rescue and I have my 4 dogs (3 White German Shepherds & 1 mix breed) and usually a few foster dogs too, and everybody piles onto my bed when I head in there to crash for the night. I know there are many more of you “Dog Ladies” out there!

    My Alma Mater (sniff), ‘Home of the Ewes,’ home of the woolite cocktail…good ol’ Flock University.
    Small in (student) body, but our hearts were big! Why there were more black eyes in this college than in any other institution of higher learnin’. Why? Well, everytime someone would ask, “where do you go to school?, we’d answer, ‘Flock U!’”
    Guess one could say we were ‘Ewesed and Abused’.

Even with a degree from a real university I have to admit I’ve done a little procrasting through the years. If you vote for my design I’ll paint you a picture! …Someday…when I get around to it… (ha,ha!) Thanks and happy designing to all!

    Hi, Opps forgot to make this link _ I guess better late than never! Please check out the ” Mr Mouser” –entry in the Fake Mascot contest. “Does Mr Mouser practice the code of “Vegans R Us? ” Or has he found a cunning new way to get the suculent little mice to trust him? ” He says he never met a mouse he did not like—. but what does that mean- is he their freind, or will they be his dinner? ” Mr Mouser didn’t get this plump from eating carrots. Vegans R Us Beware- Is there a cunning “Mouser in your house sir?”
    Please star “Mr Mouser”

  97. givengraphics Says:

    Bummer! I just read the small print and found out that because I am from Canada my entry doesn’t have a shot at winning this contest since it is open only to people residing inside the U.S. That’s too bad, but I do wish the best of luck to the rest of you participating.

    If anyone out there reading this is working for Zazzle, please don’t fear you brothers to the north…we want to play too.

  103. Vectorsmith Says:

    Hi, everyone!

    I’ve resubmitted my entry; my previous submission was deleted because it was not rated accordingly…

    This is the new URL: http://www.zazzle.com/vectorsmith/product/235327097796902956


  104. Vectorsmith Says:

    This is so frustrating!

    I’ve had to submit my entry for the third time because, for some reason, it was impossible for me to edit my second entry, and it turns out the tag for the contest was not correct; maybe it’s because of its rating…

    I know this entry will not win—because I’m not an American citizen (or living in the U.S., for that matter) and because of its rating—but here it is again, and I hope you all get a kick out of it! :0)


    P.S. I hope that the third time IS the charm! Phew!
