Wow, some truly beautiful artwork here. I particularly liked the first one.

Congrats to all the winners as well as those nominated. Was at the awards ceremony this weekend, part of Spectrum Art Live, held in Kansas City, Missouri. The awards show was TOP NOTCH! It was held in a beautiful theater, featured amazing art/dance/music performances by Phadroid and by Quixotic Fusion, and was filled with artists and fans who expressed genuine appreciation for each other. Lovely to be a witness to it all.
