    Wow – what a great treat – reviewing these portfolios and images. I am inspired to experiment more with Hipsta – I appreciate the purity and experimental philosophy that is Hipsta’s foundation. Hipsta seems to demand a thorough grounding in composition while challenging the user with becoming knowledgeable of the myriad combinations and investigating “what works with what”….kudos to all the artists and jury.
