    Lisa Congdon is one of my most favorite artists and I’d love to give that birch tree print a home!

  4. ina /// 02.29.2012 /// 12:46am

    the Winter Flags by Youngna Park are very heartwarming in these grey days.

  5. Johanna Tagada/ Bonjour Johanna /// 02.29.2012 /// 1:22am

    That’s such a nice giveaway, I would pick up the work named Marco Polo

    I keep my fingers crossed until tomorrow, but already thank you because I didn’t know 20×200 before today!

  6. Adam M /// 02.29.2012 /// 1:30am

    Seconding the thanks for pointing me to 20×200. I’d love to pick up Don Carney’s “Timid Whale” though there’s plenty more I’d like to look at first.

  7. Susanna /// 02.29.2012 /// 2:08am

    I would love to have Laura Bell’s “Ferry from Adrossan Harbor”. There are so many good artists, it’s hard to choose!

  8. Mickey /// 02.29.2012 /// 2:44am

    I’d probably get Lovebird, by Luke Stephenson and or Vegetables by Wendy McNaughton. So cool… Thanks so much for the giveaway collaboration!


  9. Barbara /// 02.29.2012 /// 3:43am

    The first one that caught my eye (without going through them all!) was Chateau by Jeremy Kohm.
    Love your blog and your taste in art.

  10. Amanda /// 02.29.2012 /// 4:49am

    I subscribed to the newsletter – too hard to choose a favourite. I love those books you showed & this reindeer by Lisa Congdon:

  28. Atison Lang /// 02.29.2012 /// 8:17am

    Do I have to choose just one? I love Amze Emmons’ work. Then again I also love the piece by Aili Schmeltz. Hmm, there are those lovely maps by Aaron Straup Cope and the energizing work of Jennifer Sanchez. Damn, can’t forget about Sarah McKenzie. Okay, okay, Amze Emmons. That is my final answer. Oh, but what about just one more tiny piece from…………….

  29. Simone /// 02.29.2012 /// 8:18am

    I was just on 20×200 yesterday, drooling away… I love ny.09#19 by Jennifer Sanchez!!

  32. Dan /// 02.29.2012 /// 8:29am

    I really like sledding hill at dusk by Joseph O. Holmes, but there is so much tasty art on 20×200 it is hard to pick just one!


    Been subscribed for a while now! πŸ˜‰

  33. cat price /// 02.29.2012 /// 8:51am

  34. Vero /// 02.29.2012 /// 8:52am

  36. Joe /// 02.29.2012 /// 9:11am

    This is a no-brainer! Steve Lambert’s “We have had…” drawings!

  37. rebeca /// 02.29.2012 /// 9:34am

    so many to choose from, hard to decide. would love anything from Jacob Escobedo . . .

  38. HeyLeon /// 02.29.2012 /// 9:39am

    I’d choose the print called Shinjuku, 6:43. That’s where I stayed in Tokyo two years ago, and that’s where I’m heading back in september this year.

  39. Amy C /// 02.29.2012 /// 9:48am

    So many choices! I love ordering things from them. I think I would like Owl No. 1 by Lisa Congdon. The kids room needs some good art that isn’t traditional kid theme items.

  40. Anna /// 02.29.2012 /// 10:14am

    I might choose Curious Bear by Don Carney. I’ve got a bit of a bear crush right now.

  41. Kathleen M /// 02.29.2012 /// 10:42am

    Very difficult to choose, because I like all photos by Todd McLellan especially “Old Push Lawn Mower” and “Old Wind-Up Clock” but also “Rawlings” by Don Hamerman and “195 Yachts, Barges, Cargo Lines, Tankers, and Other Ships” by Jenny Odell. But if I really have to choose I’ll have the latter.
    Love from Belgium.

  42. Brian /// 02.29.2012 /// 10:49am

    “Residential Web” by Amy Casey. She is one of my faves and I have always wanted to own a piece of her work!

  43. Tricia /// 02.29.2012 /// 10:51am

    Oh, so many to choose from! I love Lisa Congdon’s Birch Forest No. 7.

    I also like After the Rain by Chikara Umihara….should I add more?

    I could easily spend that money!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  51. Jamie /// 02.29.2012 /// 12:16pm

    I would choose The Sleepwalker’s Language. New artist to me and I LOVE.

  52. Amber /// 02.29.2012 /// 12:21pm

    Oi, hard to choose. Well, I signed up for the newsletter, and I’d have to say that I’d probably choose “Forest. Exclusion Zone, Chernobyl” by Donald Weber.

  53. Emma /// 02.29.2012 /// 12:24pm

    I subscribed to the newsletter. I love ‘The Denny’s parking lot’ by Esther Pearl Watson so I would choose this one.

  54. LP /// 02.29.2012 /// 12:27pm

    Michelle Hinebrook’s Encrusted would be my pic.

    I already subscribe to 20X20
    (long time at margueritecore [ at ] gmail [ dot ] com)
    and have been coveting a Jane Mount print, the cookbooks one.

  60. Kara /// 02.29.2012 /// 2:17pm

    Love the magazine dot paintings by Lauren DiCioccio. Plus anything from Jenny Odell. Or a venn diagram from Wendy MacNaughton. Or Todd McLellan. ahhh! I’m a sucker for things that fit together perfectly.


  61. Carabella /// 02.29.2012 /// 2:41pm

    Sharon Montrose’s Bear Cub No. 4 makes me smile!

  62. anya /// 02.29.2012 /// 2:44pm

    !!!!! i would buy that delicious cake by martha rich

  63. Christina /// 02.29.2012 /// 2:54pm

    I LOVE 20×200. It’s hard to pick, but two photographs are calling my name this afternoon: Rift #26 (Heimaey Houses) by Marion Belanger and Untitled (Suzie Hedge), 2006 by Brandon Herman.

  64. Becca /// 02.29.2012 /// 3:04pm

    I’ve always been a fan of Jane Mount’s ‘ideal bookshelf’ series and would love to own one!

  65. Jamie /// 02.29.2012 /// 3:18pm

    I would be so tempted to by You by William Powhida (you have to look it up!). I also like Jenny Odell’s 144 Empty Parking Lots.

  66. Bekah A /// 02.29.2012 /// 3:35pm

    Hard choice! Lisa Congdon’s Reindeer or the Luke Skywalker print. πŸ™‚

    I love the Kind Intruder by Michelle Arcila and that luke skywalker print by Hollis Brown Thornton. {i subscribed} this is an unbelievable giveaway.

  68. Anna /// 02.29.2012 /// 5:13pm

    I’m ALREADY jealous of whoever will win this!

    For whatever reason I gravitated towards the photography (okay, for a lot of reasons involving my obsession with photography.)

    Top choice = Howon by Hosang Park, followed by the whole Feral series by James Griffioen and Jet Blast by Thomas Prior and, and, and… !!!

  69. Ashley /// 02.29.2012 /// 5:19pm

    what a great giveaway, I adore Mutations 3 by Valerie Roybal!

  70. Lea Anna /// 02.29.2012 /// 7:52pm

    What a cool website. If I won I would probably get one of the Prettymaps by Aaron Straup Cope. Or a print by Sharon Montrose. So many great artists to choose from!

  71. Sabrina /// 02.29.2012 /// 8:11pm

    I signed up! I would get Praia Piquinia 28/08/10 12h20. I’ve seen photos from that series all over the place, and they always look great. I’m from the beach, and I miss it.

  72. Melissa. /// 02.29.2012 /// 10:05pm

    Choosing a favorite? That’s just brutal! There’s so many great works on 20×200!

    That said, I’ve been wrestling with myself over which of Amze Emmons’ works to get, and with a $75 gift certificate? I could spare myself further agony and get both. How awesome would that be?

  73. Mary /// 03.01.2012 /// 12:59am

    WOW I want in! Looks like I MIGHT have just made it on time? There are so many great things I’d love. WOW to have Eadweard Muybridge Animal Locomotion: Plate 44 (Man Taking Off Hat) would be pretty fantastic πŸ™‚ http://www.20×200.com/artworks/4042-eadweard-muybridge-animal-locomotion-plate-44-man

    Fingers crossed!

  74. mariana /// 03.01.2012 /// 2:17am

    I’d choose a Lisa Congdon print for sure!

  75. abby in shanghai /// 03.01.2012 /// 2:47am

    i would choose “You” by William Powhida. one day when i have kids, their friend’s parents will be horrified when they come over to my house for playdates and see this hanging on the wall. for me it is a reminder that there is humor to be found even in the most FUCK-worthy frustrating situations.

  76. Kristina M /// 03.01.2012 /// 4:07am

    Oh i love ‘Myriad’ by Yellena James. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  77. Lucy /// 03.01.2012 /// 5:14am

    by Eadweard Muybridge

    (Although it was a close call with ny.11.#12 by Jennifer Sanchez!)

    I have subscribed!

  78. Cat Lynch /// 03.01.2012 /// 5:17am

    Vintage Erasers
    by Lisa Congdon

    (although really, if I have to pick my FAVORITE i’d be on 20×200 for forever.)

  79. Christine /// 03.01.2012 /// 5:39am


    Fingers crossed! πŸ™‚

  80. Nron /// 03.01.2012 /// 6:34am

    So many choices! Maybe Old Phone by Todd McLellan.

  81. Sara Paul /// 03.01.2012 /// 7:07am

    Are you kidding? I could be on here all day! I do LOVE me some Christine Berrie though!

  82. Alison /// 03.01.2012 /// 7:40am

    One of the Robert Garcia prints…I think, so many choices, I keep changing my mind.

  83. Connie @ Daydream In Color /// 03.01.2012 /// 7:41am

    I’m really loving 28 Camera Drawings by Christine Berrie right now. My bf and I are on a total camera craze & we could both stare at this all day long…

  84. Amy Wing /// 03.01.2012 /// 7:41am

    I love 20×200, and I think prettymaps (paris) would be my choice!

  85. Tiffany Patterson /// 03.01.2012 /// 8:37am

    Probably – Balloons (Midtown, Manhattan), by Youngna Park. It’s lovely. However – there would need to be much more stalking before committing thought.

    So much amazing art! What a great giveaway. β™₯

  86. Saloni /// 03.01.2012 /// 8:58am

    I love Jane Mount’s series on Ideal Books – they are going to be a historical snapshot in about 20 years. In the age of digital books and blogs, real books are going to disappear.

  87. Kristinalee /// 03.01.2012 /// 9:04am

    Fantastic giveaway! I love the flower-like Prettymaps – Paris by Aaron Straup Cope (and he’s Canadian too)

  88. Angie /// 03.01.2012 /// 9:21am

    I’m a big fan of 20×200 and your blog. I found it via AT and few weeks ago and now I’m a loyal reader. πŸ™‚ I plan on buying We Are So Good Together by Dylan Fareed soon.

  89. Sydney /// 03.01.2012 /// 9:52am

    Jealous Curator! Thanks for this fun opportunity :). It would have to be between Michelle Hinebrook’s use of color and line to create pieces that looks like DIAMONDS! in “Encrusted” and “Crystallized” and “Animal Locomotion; Plate 187, Dancing (Fancy)” by Edward Muybridge because a) it’s “fancy” and b) IT’S EDWARD MUYBRIDGE!!! But I also LOVE Jenny Odell’s work Lisa Congdon’s “Tiny Doll Hands”! Shoot, I guess it was too hard to just pick one favorite :-/.

  90. J.N. Bradley /// 03.01.2012 /// 10:26am

    Wow! I am already subscribed to their list – I always look forward to seeing what new art they’ve just added. My first purchase would be that lovely cake print… followed by anything yellow. So many wonderful things to choose from – I need this! Pick me!

  91. Libby /// 03.01.2012 /// 11:32am

    Great giveaway!! I would get Aaron Straup Cope’s “prettymap” of NYC.

    Jane Mount’s Ideal Bookshelf – so awesoe – can’t wait to get updates on what is new – what a great site and a fantastic premise behind it

  94. Anneke /// 03.04.2012 /// 11:20am

    Yay! Count me in. Crossing my fingers and hoping for the Ideal Bookshelf no 5

  95. juleh /// 03.09.2012 /// 8:38pm

    I like tree study I, wow.

  96. Cristy /// 04.17.2017 /// 4:31am

    Thanks for the great giveaway! i think i’d probably purchase an amze emmons.. those paintings totally blew my mind a few weeks ago when they were on the site! the COLORS!
