Great year makes for tough voting. Going through that confirms I have not bought enough lately.

I'm having a very difficult time choosing. I am always surprised at my final candidate(s). I honestly try not to choose a favorite, but rather what I feel works best as a poster...like a good feel for the band or movie and stylistically a competent, well balanced design.
For art prints, I try to weigh the creativity against the execution. A print made for print's sake will out weigh a "simple" reproduction of a painting....like 9 out of 10 times.
getting closer to my final 3.

It looks like Horkey is finally getting the attention his work deserves.

He's consistently in the top 3 every year, so I think people have caught on already. :wink:

diversification doesn't hurt either. He has strong work in all 3 categories.

This Horkey poster:

reminded me too much of this:

which he created six years ago. Guess the owl is all grown up? I prefer the Mogwai much more.
