Nicholson. Not a very tough part of the bracket, though.

I don't like either of these guys, but I will go with the second guy because he made a coffee table, so at least it serves a purpose.

Wow. That was cynical.

I must need some coffee on my coffee table because I'm grumpy . . .

Had to goggle a bit for more data on these guys. I kinda like Noguchi's stuff, sometimes. The Nicholson pics here seemed rather dull, but google turned up other stuff...sometimes the dull, geometric abstraction turned into semi-abstract landscapes, and that seemed cool. So...not sure. Seeing Nicholson get most of the votes so far I'll say Noguchi, since I'm on the fence anyway.

I like both of them in an amiable, Round 1 sort of way. Nicholson a bit more, though.

It went down to the wire on this one, but at the end of a close race it's Nicholson on top, 7 votes to 5. Noguchi is off to the Left Brackets.
