BEST OF AUSTIN 2014!
So, in 2011, Nakatomi founder, Tim Doyle, TIED in the annual Austin Chronicle’s Best of Austin reader’s poll for ‘Best Visual Artist.’ This was completely awesome, and totally unexpected. In 2012- we SHAMELESSLY asked for your vote. AND WON. In 2013- we got UNHINGED about it. AND WON. So this year- LET’S DO IT AGAIN!
TODAY (SUNDAY) is the VERY LAST DAY to vote in the 2014 Best Of Austin Reader’s poll, and we really want YOU TO VOTE for TIM DOYLE for Best in Austin. Why? Purely bragging rights. There is no prize. #realtalk
Or, to quote Doyle from last year’s plea-
“I know what you’re thinking- that art is a personal expression of interior thoughts brought to reality through an extension of skill and patience, and every viewpoint is valid, and any attempt to qualify one artist as ‘better’ than another is a silly exercise in acting like personal opinion has any kind of empirical reality. You know what that sounds like to me? Sounds like LOSER TALK. U.S.A! A.R.T! U.S.A! A.R.T! RRRARGH!“
GO HERE AND VOTE. Note- you do NOT actually have to live in Austin to vote. Weird!
Looking for other awesome things to vote for?
May we suggest-
Comic Book Store– AUSTIN BOOKS AND COMICS, who carry our prints, and commissioned the Starlite Movie series from us last year!
For Best Gallery- GALLERY GUZU, who have rad shows and feature a lot of Nakatomi Artists! Also- not owned by a giant corporation.
For Best Comedian– Sean Robb, who also is a printer here at Nakatomi! Each print that comes out of our studio is full of sad, funny rage. And tears.
For Printing/Copies– Sixth Street Printing– who does the trimming for EVERY single screenprinter we know of that works in ATX! He’s a super nice dude!
For Best Bartender- The always amazing JON CHAPMAN. You either know him or you don’t. But trust me.
Remember- ONLY VOTE ONCE- no ballot stuffing!
