This is pretty cool, because Px3 is one of those rare competitions where I look at the winners and actually like what I see. The jurors have selected an excellent range of styles, subjects and attitudes, and there is some amazing art in there. It’s nice to have been selected to be among them. What can I say, I’m pretty stoked.
