These new Minipops are the 991st through to the 999th. Coming next week is the 1,000th Minipop. For now, though, there’s: Babe Ruth; Sir David Attenborough; M.I.A.; MGMT; Alaska’s best-known comedian Sarah Palin; Japanese architect Shigeru Ban; West Indian cricketer Shivnarine Chanderpaul; German band Tokio Hotel; and (rather unsubtley done because of the forthcoming Apple iPhone app) Steve Jobs.
Which leaves us with one question: who’s gonna be the 1,000th Minipop? I’ve already drawn it, so I know who it is. I know it’s not much of a prize, cash-wise, and I know it’s virtually impossible, but if anyone can guess who the 1,000th Minipop is gonna be, I’ll do a Minipop of you*. If you wanna guess, and if you comment anonymously, be sure to tell me your name along with your guess.
* If the winner is a man who wears glasses and has a beard or moustache, a Minipop of you will look a bit weird. Sorry, that’s just the way things go; there’s not enough space on the 4×6 pixel head to fit them in and leave a space for a nose. If more than one person guesses correctly, I’ll flip a coin.
