  1. How timely—I just finished watching the Closer and its spinoff Major Crime, the black ski mask was thematically combined both shows, and drew some peculiar interest from me.

    All of a sudden I pop open the computer, and there she is – Michelle Ramin—sharing important fact and historical significance of the ski mask.

    And then Rachel Mica Weiss—blowing my mind with daring sculpture, more impressive and massive than macramé (that was my immediate impression).

    And at first glimpse I though Rodigo Ojeda Beck’s name sounded familiar. Anyway, the montage project he’s talking about is presenting something new and original. I didn’t think that was possible (but then again I’m not a creative artist whose imagination holds no bounds). His is the stuff that for the same reason makes Alfred Hitchcock and Steven Spielberg so famous.

    Keep trailblazing kids…you’re amazing!

    1. The Murphy and Cadogan award recipients are all extremely talented. I’m really looking forward to this year’s award ceremony.
