National – August 2020 – Portrait/Illustration

Judges Comments

What an unexpectedly fantastic category. So much great work here! The pandemic seems to have really sharpened portrait work, which made for agonizing choices. The top eight or so all got shuffled in and out of the top spots at some point. First has so much wonderful stuff going on. Second is just beautiful, and third has faces that are impossible to look away from.
