It's weird, but logical once you get the hang of it.

It says at the top that you select the best one from the page, and it keeps getting moved to the next page. You keep choosing whatever you think is BEST from each page. Shouldn't be too hard, since you can only choose one as the final entry anyway. And it tells you how many pages are left at the top-right corner. Whatever print you choose last is the one you thought was best out of all of them.

I get your rating system, but what's the point? If each person chooses the print they think is best, then you can get an automatic ranking of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners by simple statistics. And your way is far more complicated.

I couldn't find the other Replete art print, so this is what I ended up with:

I think the process makes sense once you get used to it. Have to figure, if you like a poster best on a page, its closest to being your favorite of the year, even if something else is a close second.

I think McCarthy's The Fall was in the gigposter section.

complicated, but more accurate.. If I could choose my top 3 prints, instead of just my top 1.. i bet the results for this whole thing would be way different.. same thing goes for last year and the year before.. i think a lot of prints got left out or didn't get the credit they deserved..

that's the problem.. you have to get used to it.. once that happens, the prints on the previous pages probably got shafted..


just look at the previous Art of the Year choices..
it seems the ratings are all over the place for some of them, and that's even for prints I don't like but think are better than others..

dead man for poster and sacred mandala for art print. Dead Man was a no brainer. Seems like there should have been an art print I liked more than sacred mandala with all the incredible prints this year but really the only one that was close was danger's jabberwock print. I haven't seen Mccarthy's rain made no sound or that might have had a chance.

Before all this started, I really wanted to go w/ mccarthy's Rain had a Sound.........then I came to brainwash's Ali print. And, I thought to myself......If I were going to frame one or the other, what would it be? For me, it was the Brainwash. In a normal year, I think the mccarthy would win............however I fear, as sad as it is, this is a Lost year.

poster of the year was a no brainer for me:

i went with the same. I was open about the Gig poster, but after seeing the pics of the gold edition, it was a done deal.

I really hope McCarthy wins the Art Print oty category since in 07 and 08 he techincally had the highest rated art prints, but back then there wasn't a separate category. I feel this year his Rain Has a Sound print stands a good chance.
