This is something I’ve been meaning to do since @Jenny8Lee gave me the idea a few months after Steve & I launched reddit. We’ve been so overwhelmed with support & love from all of you hipmunks that it seemed like the right time to offer you a chance to have a special hipmunk of your own.
You’ll recognize our guest artist if you’re an active redditor — we’ve recruited Sure_Ill_Draw_That of reddit fame. I simply don’t have the mad skills to crank out art quickly, let alone so skillfully, so it’s an honor to have a famous redditor doing all this custom artwork.
Here are the first ones we made for Ben Parr and Robert Scoble:
See the full gallery on Posterous But we’d like our fabulous fans (not just tech celebrities) to have a special hipmunk, too!
Simply like our facebook page (click here if you haven’t already) and that’ll let you tag a status update with @hipmunk (which will also post to our wall and enable you to be hipmunked).
Then just write a status update that tells us your favorite travel destination and/or activity along with “Hipmunk Me!” (tagged so we’re notified of it).
Click share! And as long as you’re one of the first 500 people to participate in the next 12 hours (until 10pm eastern today), you’ll get your completed hipmunk within a couple days (our artist has a proper day job, after all).
