Toss up with Sperry's WSP for poster. That looks really nice in pics, but I haven't seen it in person.

Sperry gets my vote for Artist of the Year ... but not poster of the year. Actually, I think I would have voted for the English Beat/Reel Big Fish or the American Artifact prints over the WSP, but that's just me. All are outstanding, he had a killer year. Seabury's Sympathy for the Devil print is also top notch, another I had heavy consideration for.

As for Art print, I was this close to voting for a LOST print ... Danger's ... because the detail is great, and it transcends the whole LOST theme ... but, passed it up for something a little more simple, yet eloquent.

Art Print - (still ISO btw ... and yes, I've seen it in person)

This, or either it was the Menade art print indeed in the correct category

Went with

Danger's ....my hands were shaking ,for print even though I don't have it or seen it in person.....ahem!!! :cry:

Hunter's .....Ibogaine Conference for poster


It was very hard for me not to pick the Sperry WSP, the Emek Jane's Addiction, and Horkey's Dead Man...all top notch.
I wish we could do a different format where we could look at our top 10 alltogether It's frustrating to keep starting over to try and pick with so many choices but only carrying one over to the next page f's with my mind because I want to evaluate all my favs together and not just the best on the page.
Then I made the mistake of letting this thread sway my opinion somewhat when I saw the WSP getting so much attention It made me feel it was a runaway for #1 and that made me feel like I needed to pass it up for the feeling I was becoming jaded by it's popularity even though I'm not sure I'd have picked it #1 anyway.... does that make sense?

A lot, but I'll add that I feel the WSP Sperry is truly deserving, so I don't care popularity/hype, I'm comfortable with it. On the other side, I think it will be well represented which might not be the case for Ibogaine which is equally awesome imo. Ibogaine took the community by surprise earlier this year and placed Hunter on the map. I've never seen a small edition like this get framed as much as it did and as soon as received as this poster. I think it deserves the recognition. The fact it might not get it IS for me a reason which makes me lean toward voting for this one instead. I'm not stressing for the Sperry WSP.. the ''favoring the underdog'' rule.. kind of.
