“Simply the Best 2” reprises the visual excitement of the very first show organized by Digital Arts California. The images here are sensational!
As we always do, we judges—Gary Viskupic, Glen Christensen, and I—carefully considered the many images entered.
Once again, this was a competitive show, and therefore, having even one image chosen for inclusion is an honor.
I would like to thank my fellow judges, both of whom are graphics professionals with long resumes of accomplishment in visual arts. As Art Director of Buddah Records, Elektra/Asylum Records, and 20th Century Fox Records, Glen Christensen was, for many years, a major figure in graphic design in the music industry. He has received two nominations for the prestigious Grammy Award, for Best Album Package. Gary Viskupic has, to his credit, an extensive body of work in editorial illustration, most of it rendered during his long tenure as an editorial artist at Newsday in New York. In addition, Gary’s international freelance work has included many award-winning posters and illustrations. He has been recognized many times by such prestigious organizations as the Society of Illustrators, Graphis, The Society for News Design, and Print magazine. He is currently an instructor of illustration at New York Institute of Technology.
