Last night, the USS Tucson lost a crew member. Well, maybe “misplaced” more than lost. We wouldn’t want to be misleading. The point is, we don’t know where he is or what he’s doing. But maybe you do? Hence tonight’s art contest: show us what the King of Spades has been up to!

A classic King of Spades card: a man with shoulder length hair, short curly beard, and oiled moustache holds a sword and wears a red cloak embroidered with spade symbols.

He looked like this when we last saw him, but he may have adopted a new identity by now.

How it Started | How it’s Going – A King of Spades Story

Once you’ve finished your piece of art, please email them to us at [email protected] and have the subject line be King of Spades. Make sure we RECEIVE the email by 10pm PST!

In the body of the email also make sure to include your Desert Bus For Hope username, your chat name, or whatever else you’d like the be called out loud on stream. Thanks in advance for letting us see what the King’s been doing!

Matt has issued an art challenge to the chat.His overnight shift is taking it out of him, so he has started thinking about what he will do once he gets to escape The Chair. So that’s what he wants to see. Please send over your art showing what is next in Matt’s day! Napping? Diving into a giant pool of golden retrievers? Keeping hold of the controller, and returning to a 24 hour shift? Probably not that last one, but you show us!

Please email all entries to [email protected] with the subject line #freewiggins contest, and submit your image as a JPG or PNG, either as an attachment or a link that we can easily access. Also please let us know what name we should use for you should we show your submission on-air. The winner of this challenge will win a Desert Bus 2018 t-shirt!

This contest will end at 9:00am PST, so make sure to get those entries in!

We had so many lovely submissions from our poets in the chat. It was tough to create a shortlist much less pick a winner. Alas through all of our combined poetry knowledge we have decided on a winner of a Desert Bus 10 T-Shirt!

Congratulations to chat user Akaiatana with their wonderful Haiku!

Folks said we’re crazy
The obstacles in our way
Are Smoke and Mirrors


Enjoy your new T-shirt Akaiatana!

bob-rossSo, let’s spice up the Bob Ross Paint off! As you may have seen we are having a donate-off to choose the winner of our little contest. The breakdown is as follows:

$5.01 or multiples thereof – Kate

$5.02 or multiples thereof – Graham

$5.03 or multiples thereof – Andy

$5.04 or multiples thereof – Tally


The winner of the donate-off has the honour of being crowned, “Kind of Bob-Ross like, we guess”. In addition to the satisfaction of having your selection win, we will draw a winner for a “mystery prize” from the donations for our winning contestant.


“EDIT” So remember when I said mystery prize? I lied, we knew all along what we wanted to do. One of our own social media volunteers Kelly will be doing a CUSTOM PAINTING for the winner. After the run we will put you in contact with Kelly to get the details of your request hashed out.
