In the spirit of awards season, we’ve decided to create our own: The Artists Choice Awards. The idea is simple: it’s the image that each artist believes is their best of 2014. No micromanaging from the agent peanut gallery. It’s not always readily apparent why some images were selected, but we’re sure the artists have their reasons. This is a terrific body of work. Please take a few minutes to enjoy. You can click on any image to see an enlarged version.
