    Sorknes:
    im not sure if your comments were in response to mine,
    but if so i feel like you misread them or didnt read them...

    in spectrum 13 there are amazing pieces for all the styles represented
    no question. the stylistic diversity is one of the things i like most about it.

    my eyes are as hungry for different approaches and visual vocabularies as anyone.

    Just like to ask a quick question here (sorry to hijack the thread) - how do the spectrum books compare to the expose series from ballistic? The spectrum annuals seem to be more popular (and they've been going on for a good bit longer too). Is the standard of art roughly the same?

    I find Expose tends to have more... over the top digital art, and lots of it with some glaring mistakes in basics (like anatomy) - not to knock the skill, but it's... not the total package, I suppose? It feels really airbrushed and rendered to death to me. With Spectrum, you get some of the BEST conceptual types and illustrators all in one place, awesome (and VARIED) rendering/techniques... like previously stated, some stuff that isn't your favorite thing ever will get in, but chances are 75% or more will blow your mind.

    But that is just my opinion.

    yeah, when you exclude based on medium, you're cutting down your talent pool. Spectrum is open to all.

    I just received my Expose 6 in the mail today, including the free prints offerred in the Limited Edition.

    I'm always careful of saying that artists, writers, & photographers have made "mistakes" - it's always possible that they painted/wrote/photographed their piece exactly the way they wanted it. Maybe they wanted the female to have one breast in the correct place and the other on her foot. When photographing, I have made many "mistakes in basics" to create an effect.

    Anyway, the production of the Expose series is always top notch quality, and although I enjoy both Expose and Spectrum, I enjoy Expose more - it feels like less of a hodge-podge.

    And congrats to Andrew on his Excellence award and other entries!
