[Something cool we just remembered from our Golden Archives. Love this! -Niero]

Last year, GuitarAtomik sang, Rio McCarthy made a bunch of awesome, Necros was racy, itemforty drew the staff, RockVillian made a prologue, CannibalCalvin was creepy, LarkOhiya made a Destructoid in Halo 3, DJDuffy made an animation, Butmac got really drunk and Ceark made the Destructoid graphic novel.   

A lot of awesome happened last year, so it was pretty hard thinking of something to top all those incredible efforts. I finally thought of something a couple of months ago and called for artists from the Destructoid community to work together on a special project.

The idea originally was for the artists to just make their own version of the Destructoid robot and bring all the different Destructoids together into one picture. In the e-mail I sent to the 40 plus artists that volunteered, I made an off-hand joke that we should make a children's alphabet book instead. After laughing at my own joke for a little while, I kept thinking about it and realized an alphabet book themed after Destructoid sounded brilliant. So, that's what we have here now.

The aim of the anniversary project was for everyone to draw their own version of the Destructoid robot and relate their image to a letter, symbol, number or made up icon of their choice. Obviously, there were more than 26 people on this project so we unofficially added some new "letters" to the English alphabet.
