CLARIFICATION: This contest is for the COMPLETE poster (described below), not for submissions that would be considered PART of the poster below.
EDIT: I changed "Pets/stuffed animals may be substituted as needed" to "* Pets/stuffed animals may be substituted"
My girlfriend loves to create games with silly rules that may or may not be broken just for the fun of it, like playing the lava game. One day we were cuddling and I started to tickle her. She yelled, "Hey! No tickling! We're cuddling! That's against the rules!" I laughed and asked, "What rules?" She replied, "The rules of proper cuddling technique! Rule #6 clearly states: The person on top cannot be tickled!"
We were laughing so hard we were both in tears as we debated what some of the rules should be. She said she was going to print out the rules, laminate them, and post them over my bed so she can just point to the list. Our 1 year anniversary is coming up and I'd like to go big and make a professional quality poster out of this :)
I'd like our poster to have six cells (two columns, three rows) with space above and below for additional text (see attached layout sketch). Since she and I devised our rules I've seen two cartoons with similar ideas that I'd like to use for inspiration on the graphic end of things:
I like the simple color scheme in both of those, it makes it easy to look at the other details of the art. (FWIW, I like the art style of the first one better.) As for what'll be on the poster:
Header: Proper Cuddling Techniques
Sub Header: Any alterations or additions to these rules must be agreed to by both parties and displayed next to this poster in writing.
1. Having a partner is mandatory, you cannot snuggle alone*
2. Both partners must use two arms
3. No electronic devices
4. No cold parts without a 5-second warning
5. No wet willies or tongues in ears
6. The person on top cannot be tickled
* Pets/stuffed animals may be substituted

Requirements: 5000×7100 pixels to allow for all printing sizes, file format: JPEG or PNG, color space: sRGB. Redbubble doesn't give any info about bleed on posters but I'd like a .25"(6mm) border just to be safe.
Images I'd like to see in each frame:
#1 Guy and a girl happily snuggling
#2 Guy on his back, girl's head on chest. He looks bored, she's a bit angry/peeved ("Hey!")
#3 Girl with arms around guy, but looking at cellphone over his shoulder
#4 Couple under covers, girl's head on chest with evil grin
#5 Guy sticking tongue into girl's ear, girls's eyes frazzled o_0
#6 Girl: on top, holding up a warning finger. Boy: hands on her hips, mischievous look
In reference to the layout picture I'm uploading ... I don't mean that the areas need to have borders (though I'm not necessarily against it either). I was just trying to draw a general idea of the layout and areas.
