The Bird Lady is a jewel of an illustration, rich in color and implied narrative. Gosselin's unusual color scheme and the repetition of circular forms leads the viewer's eye around composition, almost like a treasure hunt. It's a compelling image, executed by a master of her craft.~ V. Saunders
2nd Place - James Ketover
Extracted Momentum displays the sublime feeling of movement on a two dimensional surface. By using digital processes to achieve this sensibility he has used the best properties of the digital world to create a physical sense of movement on the flat surface of a plane. It is captivating, pulsating and more than real.

Colorful Neglect uses the freedom that Photoshop offers to image-makers. She creates a digital image that at once appears entirely photographic in its realism, but on the other hand leaves nothing to chance in its composition. We can see the grid, the repetition of forms and colors played out in a rhythmical scheme detailing the hustle and bustle she is after to define an urban neighborhood bounded by walls. ~ M. Visser
