This time of year, it is customary for news outlets to review the top stories of the year. We decided to do the same, with an award to our favorite artists we are calling the “No Duh” Awards. Drop us a note and let us know who you think deserves a “No Duh.”
Best in “Duh” Show for most unique look & most memorable:
1) Tonya’s Pink Walls Post on Interior Design
I’ve never seen a home quite like Tonya’s. A true original, her style was one of the first things I wanted to blog about and remains one of my favorites today.
Fav Fashion Post
1) Harry Pottah, Why Do you Frequent the Gap?
I spent way too much time on this one, analyzing the costume design in movies is a blast! Perhaps we could start an Artduh Fashion version of Mystery Science Theater.
Reading Todd’s art history lessons is one of my favorite things about the blog. And we’ve gotten a lot of feedback from readers that they enjoy the bite-sized teaching moments too. I’m hoping my co-editor will do more of these in 2011. Since these artists are dead, the award goes to our friend Carrie Poulsen for being most appreciative of these lessons.
Perhaps its because these folks are my friends. Perhaps its because I’ve been collecting their art for years. I’m not sure, but these profiles stayed with me all year as fantastic memories.
We had a great time getting to know these artists who we’d been admiring for years.
People’s Choice award.
1) Dale Erected my Xmas Tree
This silly post lets us live up to our name. I can’t believe how popular it was considering how little time I spent writing it.
