kevin_gets_facelift

And the winner of the #kevin_gets_facelift challenge is @kellyripper!

I can honestly say, I really struggled picking a winner. There are SO, SO, SO many phenomenal images I could not really say one is the best. So, to help with this huge dilemma I went back to what I specifically wrote before this challenge took off! Here is what it said:

“Use your best editing and typography skills and help me with a new mission statement and profile photo.”

To me this image by @kellyripper best represents the original request while maintaining the character of the old picture, yet this edit elevates the image to a new level. It’s subtle yet very powerful and when I use it people will remember the original image as well. Clean, new and fresh!

Nice job @kellyripper. You won the $100 iTunes gift card. Please give Kelly a ton of paise.

But, that’s not all, I have a few more announcements and winners!

Argh, someone is knocking on my door again! Sorry hold on…

Before I announce the final winner PLUS a special added benefit, I just had to share a few more classic images from the #kevin_gets_facelift challenge.

How will I ever pick a winner?

Just when I though this #kevin_gets_facelift challenge could not get any bigger or more entertaining @akosidoki creates a video version of of my face as an old man, including sound effects! Thanks @akosidoki it’s been really funny seeing myself as an old man! I have a lot to look forward to as I age.

I hope you are all enjoying these images as much as I am? I am SURE everyone is tired of seeing my face! Even if you are, you have to be blow away by people’s talent and the editing skills here on Instagram.
