Thanks for the kind words ‘Tired.’ It was a long process of voting, discussion and revoting among the jurors (9, I think). Judging can frustrating process, especially for artists. But it is also revelatory. Democracy is messy. And art making is hardly scientific. I wish all artists could at least once watch a jury in action. For me it puts the whole process into perspective.
Good advocacy work on that book, Alec; worth the second look.
I will say; the winning entry was a better “dummy” in that the way it was put together — its design, the paper selected, etc. elevated the material in a way the others selected for 1st & 2nd prize did not … and it was a prize for best dummy, not best portfolio.
This post brings a tear of joy to my eyes. Chad and I have shared many a beer in our time, and it’s wonderful to see him getting some due respect for his work. He is a man that constantly keeps me on my toes. Hats off and hopefully some dancing shoes on.
