Interesting match up. Although I love some of Rousseau's stuff, Rivera seems more powerful and plain talented.

I find this to be a hard decision. Both are interesting and distinctive but neither I love. I'll go for Rivers based on his murals.

I'll go for Rivera here. Rousseau gets on my nerves.

Hmmmm. Yeah, I'll go with Rivera. Somewhat to my surprise.

Rivera coasts to an easy victory here, with eight votes against H. Rousseau's two. I believe this is one of those lopsided totals where a lot of voters could have swung either way. Sometimes those end up badly, at least for the losers.
