So what!

So ... you don't do that if people think "there's something missing a lot of the time."

Such a ludicrous statement, given the level of care and detail in his work.

On EB?

No last year's winner was Emek.

At any rate, my point is you don't develop that kind of recognition among collectors and other gig-poster artists without creating some incredible work.

i'm really looking forward to this one. i also hope emek brings his A game. 2006 was obviously his peak year and for me he's been hit or miss since. i expect both artists to come up big. hopefully they bring out the best in each other.

A ludicrous statement is saying something's good because it won! Don't get me wrong, I like EMEK's work, hell you might notice I have a few in my collection, but come on!

They are the 2 best poster artists going IMO. Be interesting to see how their style blends.
