One other point to note about the prints produced by Visual Technician - he does everything by hand. He cut's the stencils by hand and each color of each print is hand pulled (he doesn't use an automated screen printing press). He does it the old school way which in my opinion is the way an art print should be done. I majored in printmaking in college and have a real appreciation for someone that still uses those old-school methods. No disrespect to those that use newer more efficient methods. Just more props to Visual Technician for doing it the way he does

I respect all for what they do, but hell yes, if you are doing it the hands on way and doing all by hand you get an extra gold star in my book!!

POTY for me is this or this. I haven't decided. (They both won AOTW, so they should be eligible.)

I'd consider this, but I'm waiting to see pics of the actual print.

Not sure about AOTY. Maybe Saber's first flag.

I agree and after gifting this framed to my brother, he agrees.

No these were printed by D&L. Jeff felt like there needed to be something in the background to seperate all the red in the poster.

Did I miss the gahhhdammm link to vote this year? Am I just overly anxious?

The Hunter Ibogaine I voted for last year didn't get picked...and I'm anxious to get voting going so I can hopefully be part of the winning team this year. :P

Some posters were mistakenly placed in the art print category. Probably too late to fix ?

Yeah, I didn't see Critters in there? Maybe I wasn't paying enough attention.

It's time to vote: Question - How do you vote for artist of the year? I voted for poster and art print, but I didn't see the artist category.
I always defer to someone who's wearing a beater, regardless of what else he's wearing.
