Participants in our most recent contest were asked to create patterns for masks (or similar headgear) that could be made in time for Halloween. The winner -- and this is her second trip to the podium, having won our windows & doors contest previously -- is Dutch illustrator Deborah van de Leijgraaf. Her 'Funny Black Cat Mask' won the most votes in a field of brilliant entries. The house favorite, however, was an entry by SammyK for a pair of new superheroes, Spoon & Flower, whose exploits we like to think have just begun.
