Why is there no artist of the year? Love the voting system and running through all the pieces from the past year. Think there should definitely be an artist of the year category. Too late too add one, Mods?

Because the Hork fan boys would ensure Horkey won every year.

DISCLAIMER: I'm not saying he doesn't necessarily deserve it, just that the rabid fandom on EB for the man leaves little room for open, unbiased "best of" discussions

This could be good... Possibly a poll? I'd vote for Durieux. His quantity and quality over 2014 was incredible!

Far as GP artists go- Slater and Tsang had pretty solid runs. How was this not in the mix?

that's how good 2014 was for GP's - this image barely cracks my top 10, and I spent big (well, more like medium) bucks for the foil version!

Right. Just surprised that it didn't happen. BTW how many nominations are needed? More than 2? I feel like I ask this every year and then immediately forget the answer.
