I like Estes, but not as much as Van Eyck.

Estes.

Estes, surprisingly. (It's a surprise to me, anyhow.)

I love Estes, but I just want to BE that pregnant lady with the horns all swathed in green, so... Van Eyck.

Michael5000 said...

But IS SHE ACTUALLY PREGGERS?!? It's one of the Big Questions of art history. I believe the consensus is, nope.

Van Eyck please, thank you.

Michael5000 said...

I can hardly believe I'm voting against van Eyck, but apparently I am: Estes.

Van Eyck takes it in a down-to-the-last-month slugfest, 7-6. Estes falls to the Left Bracket, but he HAS to feel good about going toe to toe with Jan the Man.
