This is your fault for taking the bait.
On Friday during the New Product Post, we tossed an amazing cut-out of Shawn's best Oktoberfest expression on the blog to see what you could do with it. We loved the entries we got, and now our interest is really piqued, so we're having a PHOTOSHOP CONTEST. Here's how this is going to work:
And that's it! So without further ado, here's Shawn, and may the strangest among you win!
That was TOO easy! found him right away. You should have placed him further from the post card! Very clever!
Well, you can find him exactly where the original Wally is :)
He was right on the "Waldo Loop"
Can Shawn be found in the picture aside from the postage stamp?
Hello all, thank you for your comments. Then answer is yes! you can actually find Shawn!. Enjoy.
Can confirm - found :)
I think the answer is yes because I think that I found a match. If that is the case, then I'll keep quiet in case others want to try to find him.
This is great, well done indeed!
This is my favorite. Well done!
Well... I guess the contest is over now :)
Ha! I have zero influence when it comes to who wins this.
Break the Internet Shawn!
I feel the need to get to Mars...
Would it be weird if I said that my photo folder at work now contains a disproportionate amount of "Shawn's head superimposed on Arnold Schwarzenegger" contraband? #engineering #downtime #dontjudge
Start the reactor!
How this thread makes me feel:
I'm pretty sure you will feel better after you see this .
No Shawn can't have a beard or no Shawn can't be loved as much as you are?
Shawn's face shopped on my body, no. ;-)
Thanks for playing!
One more for ya, buddy.
Keep the change, you filthy animal
Just because. :)
And the original from the New Products Post -
Bow ties are cool!
Dr. Shawn Who! I love it!
Edvard Munch Original
I am shocked you're the first to the Munch party! Nice.
I was too, thanks!
Superb. He does love to pontificate.
LMAO. These are fantastic. You all make me proud!
There's Shawn, breaking the laws of physics again. Back to gravity school for you Mr.!
"After a drunken night with the MakerBot Replicator..."
Except for the font and face, I made this from scratch.
Bit of a deep cut.
Oh, how I love Kids in the Hall!
Let's just add a happy Shawn here, shall we friends?
I can't scroll past this one without cracking up every time!
The highlight scene of "Spark Fun 2 - The Wrath of Shawn"
This one's coming from inside the house but I can't not.
After an extended day drinking session for science, Shawn thought it would be a good idea to first-hand test Sparkfun's Triple Axis Accelerometer and Gyro Breakout and the Altitude/Pressure Sensor Breakout.
I was considering doing this one, but I don't have the skills to change the shawn-face perspective to fit. Nice job.
Games of Shawn
I HAVE NO MORE SCREAMS NOW. ALL THAT COMES OUT IS DUST.
MiP V2 Prototype
I'm really impressed you got the glasses on the outside of the mask :)
the curse of costumes and glasses wearers everywhere. That was actually the most tedious part to photoshop too..
Shawndra is hott
Good luck judging this contest. You've created a monster.
Shawn Poole - Creative Technologist SparkFun
This is fantastic. Be prepared for more 'shop contests in the future. Above and beyond the call of duty. Edit: Caption contests will continue to be a feature of course.
How about caption contests on the winners of photoshop contests?
I also know for a fact that Shawn does not want to see his face on the homepage anymore for a while.
Oooh. Very meta.
I'm not prepared to rule that out but I have an extremely short attention span. Also, as much as I have enjoyed this, there are a few in here I'd rather not see ever again.

Geez! It's harder to figure out the embed image syntax than it is to edit the photo!
Bang! [square brackets] (partenthesis) nothing
remove the spaces between the bang, the square bracket, and parenthesis. Unfortunately it is not the real Donald but sadly something I can now not un-see.
Don't think this qualifies, it's supposed to be a picture of Shawn. This is obviously the real Donald himself.
Shawn's ill-fated run for president under a pseudonym:
Life of the Party
Props for the grain match here, Slim!
Some of these are just… I'm just so proud.
Shawn has too much in common with Max Headroom to not do this.
My apologies for the poor quality. This is the first time I've attempted this type of compositing in GIMP. Source picture ripped w/o permission from the Subgenius Wikia
Ha! Finally figure out how to do it. If anyone wants the editable file, here is the GIMP xcf file.
Thanks for posting that, Semba. Does GIMP not deal with transparent PNGs? If not don't mind posting in both formats.
Slack or death. All hail the Bob.
GIMP deals with transparency (Alpha channel) fine. I just had problems figuring out how to embed the picture in the forums. The GIMP file is there if anyone wants to make a better attempt than my paltry skills would allow. (Or to see how I did it...)
Sorry for poor quality, I only have mspaint at work
YOU WANT ME TO PUT THE SOLDERING IRON DOWN!!??
Late to the party I know, but I find it disturbing nobody found this connection:
And yes, it is a horrible hack job...
For all you Rick and Morty fans out there
When your need for meat exceeds normal levels...

Shawn... you must defeat the dark lord.

First of all, you can EDIT your existing posts. Secondly, you're going to type this:
CANT FIGURE OUT POST SYNTAX!
how do i post a picture?
Wear gloves when you handle that thing, it'll give you cancer.
This contest is just TOO funny! I love all the pictures!
Statue of Shawn-erty!
Thanks to Sembazuru for tips on getting the picture to actually show up.
Bah. I did review the formatting help, but I can't see the picture. I must be missing something.
[Edit] I wound up using Imgur, if anyone else is having similar problems.
I had similar problems trying to host from DropBox. It seems that the public link for both Google Drive and DropBox actually point to a web page with the image embedded, not to the raw image itself.
I had to use a dedicated image hosting site, in my case postimg.org and I didn't have to sign up.
You're correct, but at least with google drive, you can "get a shareable link", then open that link yourself, and right click the image to copy the image URL. Paste that very, very long URL here and it'll show up while being hosted on google. I use photos.google.com.
Separated at birth?
The one that started it all, back in the other thread.
OK, there's already a Pope Shawn, but this one's creepier. :-)

How do I comment with an image?
Also from inside the house. (Don't worry. You guys are crushing it even if I could win)
. . . sorry . . . trouble posting images . . . :( . . .
For those having trouble posting, markdown is easier than traditional HTML [for me.] Thusly:
! [Caption alt txt] (image url)
but with no spaces
Finally got this working . . . :) . . .
Anybody wanna hit me with a "You're tearing me apart, Lisa!"?
How do I post an image?
Here's my submission: http://oi59.tinypic.com/3444l09.jpg
Thank you :)

I'm a big fan of Shawns
If anyone is having issues with Imgur (or others) removing images (likely for copyright infringement), they are likely considered fair use, though I'm not an attorney and can't guarantee that.
I'll figure it out
