Hey! Am I the first to comment? My favourite is: a circle!
Love your stuff! This give-away is very generous!

All the best!

Chad Ethridge said...

I have to say that the triangle is a pretty solid geometric figure. It has the most structural integrity of all the geometric shapes and therefore is used in trusses all over the world. It's even used in the design of the most primitive huts and most outrageous architectural monuments known to man (i.e. - the pyramid). Not to mention all of those cool A-frame camp lodges and What-A-Burger joints from the seventies! . . . and then there's the Trinity! This is starting to sound like the basis of a School House Rock melody or some strange ode to the triangle, which reminds of Ed Grimly who played the triangle . . . I digress.

David M said...

Triangle man! Triangle was the first shape that popped in to my head and I think we have TMBG to thanks for that.

I love giveaway week!

SD Smith said...

A a Trinitarian, I have to go with triangle.

I want to win.

Mel said...

I'm partial to circles. Your giveaway is amazing, so is your art!

Renee Kurilla said...

Circle, yes, circle. Tho...I sometimes I could go for a square.
Hm. This shouldn't be so difficult.

D3stiny_Sm4sher said...

I like circles.

I also like the frame where that guy's glasses are popping off his face.

Keith Zoo said...

holy COW! I feel so lucky, I knew ol' Xenon would bring me luck.

Thanks Cory!

ps- my fav shape is an octagon, reminds me of our great sea friend, the octopus.. well, minus the whole legs/face/sea creature thing.

Heather said...

Sign me up again! Woo Hoo!

Rinry said...

I like the octagon. They call a lot of attention to themselves :)

Caleb said...

I'll have to go with the Dharma Initiative Octagon.

Peace. - Caleb

Johnny McKenna said...

love this week so much. Cory, you are so awesome. If there is ever a give away with Lily I am going to FREAK!

my favorite shape is easily the rhombus. Fun to say, and it's really just a mockery of the square. Those stupid, uppity squares...

Dani said...

I want this one! I want this one! For the love of God, I want this oneee!

I like the circle, but I really love the traingle!

Lizzle said...

I like the story about Walter's adventure!

My favorite geometric shape is the rhombus!

Maurice said...

I prefer the circle, too.

theinvisiblechild said...

Does a spiral count? It's definitely my favourite shape to draw...

Pirate Trish said...

Parallelogram! Triangles are tasty shapes hence why the mighty nacho has it but parallelograms are so delightfully... Shifty.

m.b said...

I am also partial to circles, but I love long vertical rectangles.

Dani loves this one, so I think you should give it to her. ;)

Ryan said...

I'm going with rectangle. Awesome art! Great contest!

Jez said...

really love your work! want!

Will said...

Good Day Mr. Scientist & Assistant!

I would have to say that the circle is probably my favorite - perfect in every form. Unless of course you're drawing free hand, and then they get kinda sloppy.

Thanks for the cool giveaway - good luck to every one!

Graham Fisher said...

The circle. It has the most sides, and therefor is superior to the rest.

Kerry Parker said...

I personally love simple circles. Can't describe why, just do.

Dani said...

Awesome work. Science and art is fun.

netterkins said...

circles are cool.love me some circles!

Rick said...

I'm guessing you like the triangle because of this:

I would also have to agree with m.b. Give it to Dani. She really, really wants it. Besides, I'm still praying that something with a kid on it comes up.

Oh, and after reading "Walters" I looked him up and found out he committed suicide. That's weird cause the paramedic that saved baby Jessica from the well did the same thing. From heroic, to icon, to suicide? Fame is a deceptive little mistress.

Jeffrey Lebowski said...

Isoceles triangle.......2 out of 3 is sometimes the best you get.

Chocoholic said...

I just like geometric patterns, be they circles or squares. Repeat 'em and I'm happy.:)

nicholas said...

This piece is fantastic!
I seem to say that almost everytime. :)

thomas said...

circle ;)

Brittany said...

I would really like to win this!!

Maria said...

Quadrilateral... or trapezoid... They're just fun words to say.

Fun piece too!

Seb Mesnard said...

Vive la science!

Nicole said...

I have to go with triangle too. I'm looking forward to the new flight!

Gwendolyn said...

does a sphere count? do you remember when Mr. Bopp dubbed my crappy 3-D design project "birth of an egg"?

All that to say, James had better draw my name....

Charles said...

This may not be considered a geometrical shape, but my favorite shape is a heart (the typical romantic symbol, not the anatomical equivalent). And it can be approximated by your standard polygon type things, so it is geometrical enough for me.

Nat said...

A dodecahedron. More than the shape, I like the name. Could have easily been a monster in a good fantasy.

Terry said...

Very cool.

My favorite shape is the tetrahedron. Besides being the simplest Platonic solid, its vertices also describe the linkages between atoms of some of the hardest natural substances known, like diamond, and quartz.

There's something lovely about a circle ... :0)
