FanstRAvaganza Day 6 – Standring room only

EDIT: The magazines you designed are now live! Thanks for your input. ๐Ÿ˜€

Note: this blogpost was created as part of FanstRAvaganza 3. Other participating blogposts can be found here:

John Standring

Not everyone has seen Sparkhouse yet, but Richard Armitage again gives a great performance in this drama.ย  John Standring is one of the sweetest characters you’re likely to meet.ย  โ™ฅ

Screencap courtesy of RichardArmitageNet.Com

While he could be considered a “doormat” who allowed himself to be taken advantage of, in the hands of Richard Armitage we see much more depth.

Although the story is a serious drama, I decided to have a little fun with it and create a farming magazine.ย  You can redesign the cover to your heart’s desire because it uses drag and drop in Flash!

Asย  you may recall, this blog does not support Flash so I have set up an external website to host those files.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Please click the image or text link below to play.ย  It’s pretty self-explanatory so I’ll let you discover how it works.ย  Have fun!

John Standring drag and drop magazine

Since drag and drops are very fast and easy to make, I’d like to create more!ย  It’s so much fun to collaborate with you that I’d like your input again.

If you would kindly participate it will be greatly appreciated! Please submit any or all of the following and I will choose at least one of your submissions for one or more other magazines:

1. A screencap of Richard Armitage as John Standring. You can paste the link from your own stash on photobucket or imageshack, etc. or you can link from your favorite website, such as RichardArmitageNet.Com
2. A magazine title
3. An article title
4. A caption to go in the corner (2 or 3 words at most)

Note that all of these are optional. For instance, you can submit just a screencap, or only an article title and a caption title. If you can submit all 4, that would be great though! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here’s an example:

2. Rancher’s Digest
3. Can marriage save your farm?
4. First issue!

The resulting magazine(s) will be posted by 1:30 PM New York City time on Saturday, March 17. The deadline is 12 Noon Saturday, New York City time.

P.S. Wow, thanks for all your lovely commentsย  you shared in yesterday’s fan interview about you! Looking forward to tomorrow!

EDIT: Here are the links to the 2 magazines you designed.

First John Standring magazine designed by YOU!

Second and final John Standring magazine designed by YOU!

    THIS is HYSTERICAL!! We get Successful Farming, Progressive Farmer, Farm Journal, High Plains/Midwest Ag Journal, Livestock Weekly AND Drovers Journal…none of them come close to these. No sheep here tho.
    That pic on Standring on the cover of the Gourmet mag…I can honestly say, that’s THE only pic of an RA character that I hiccup on. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great job as per expected, B!

    • bccmee says:

      @The Queen: Haha, I’m not surprised you have a lot of farming magazine subscriptions. I would buy almost anything with RA on the cover. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. servetus says:

    Really sweet!

  22. Luciana says:

    Really funny… It’s amazing how RA characters are inspiring!!! LOL
