On April Fools’ Day, we posted a couple of our own joke MAKE article teasers and a list of headlines we’d internally brainstormed. Then we asked you all to riff on these, either providing art for some of our headlines or creating your own. We promised three one-year subs to MAKE in a drawing. We got four submissions, so we decided to give everyone a sub. Congrats to these four makers and thanks for your artwork. We especially love Miguel’s cover entry (above). Look for your subscriptions soon.
