ArtOrder challenge winners.

I was honored to be a judge for Jon Schindehette’s Hurakan book cover ArtOrder challenge. The winners have been announced, you can check out what the full panel of judges had to say here: Hurakan Challenge.

We had some tough choices to make. I was grateful for Jon’s system of picking 5 (although I cheated and picked 6) winners and commenting on them. Picking “a winner” adds excitement to the event, no doubt, but the real fun is forcing yourself to articulate what is working and what has potential. Congrats to everyone that entered.

Thank you, Irene, for taking time out of your busy day to not only judge the ArtOrder challenge but to offer helpful critiques. I learned a lot from your comments on the different entries (the same way I learn a lot from your blog--I'm a big fan!).

And congrats to you, Scott. I really liked your storm-lit god.
