Hugo voting: best artist categories

Due to a Leaky Toilet Of Doom, today I get to stay home and wait for the plumber, do some of the housecleaning that would otherwise languish for five years, and! Finally sit down, look over the last bits of the Hugo packet that I can get around to before the deadline, and cast my ballot.

Here is what I have to say about certain entries in the Artist categories:

You boys who've submitted portraits depicting men in active, powerful poses - facing front, standing strong, guns blazing - alongside portraits depicting women in nothing but bikinis or wet t-shirts, or in poses focusing on T&A?

I do not approve. You rank below NO AWARD on my ballot.

Please do better in the future.
