CigarCraig’s 12 Spectacular Days of Cigar Giveaways 2015 Last Day: The Cigartist

OK, seriously, this is really the last day. I’m not kidding. This one is going to run a little longer than the rest, I’ll pick a winner on Sunday, so be sure to check back.  This is a very special item, and original painting by Eric Whitfield, The Cigartist! This painting is titled “Wind” and is 16″ x 20″ acrylic on stretched canvas.  This is a serious piece of art, selling on his website for $350, so it’s a very generous offering from Eric, and some lucky person will have this to hang in his home.  Eric has all of his exceptional pieces on his site, so check it out and purchase some.  I’m sure he can work with you on custom work as well.  This really should be some sort of charity auction or something, but I don’t know a good way of doing that! I’m expecting that only people who really want this painting are going to enter, as this should definitely got to a loving home!




Yesterday we added an extra day, which we’ve done in the last two years as well, and it was some Drew Estate Kentucky Fire Cured Fat Mollys and a matching Sterling Silver necklace.  I, kind of begrudgingly, smoked a Fat Molly yesterday, and it was pretty darned good. I’ve not been a fan of the KFCs in the past, and I still don’t like that campfire aroma, but it was not bad at all, and it burned perfectly.  I have a few more floating around the humidors that I won’t be afraid to smoke now.  Hopefully Miguel Rocha is also a fan, because he’s the winner and needs to send me his address!  Thanks to Broc as well as the crew at DE for making day 13 special! Don’t forget to visit Broc’s site and check out all his great jewelry!

    Thanks for another year of great giveaways, Craig! I look forward to your reviews in the year to come.

  30. Tim S

    That is a great prize and incredible painting. Thanks for the fun contest and have a safe and happy Christmas.

  31. There are only a handful of artists I turn to when I am in the mood to dream of beautifying my man cave and Eric is one of them. I have my fingers crossed for sure!
    As a heads up to all the cigar art lovers, there is a BOTL named Dennis Saum that owns Overland Park Art & Frame in Overland Park KS that invented a tobacco leaf wrapped framing. I’ve had a DE hand painted leaf and a few other pieces of Jessi’s work done in various styles of it and they are gorgeous! It really makes them pop! Dennis has or has pending the patent on it so you can’t have it done anywhere else. His prices are very reasonable too! Tell him Krump sent you and I’m sure he’ll cut you a deal. Most of you liked already know his face from the industry.
    I know if I win, it will be heading to OP Art & Frame as soon as I get it!
    Thanks to Craig for he great contest and many thanks to Eric for the awesome prize!!
