    I spent a few months submitting images to Saatchi's ShowDown until I realized what it was about. Think about it. His site has a very good traffic rank which is most likely due to so many people going there to vote. People are not going there to buy art. They are going there because they have been asked a hundred times to vote for someone and finally gave in. LOL. The only thing good about that site is the name attached to it, Saatchi. If it were not for that it would one of thousands of art sites that hardly see the light of day. and are far better in design.

    There are things I like about Saatchi's Showdown and things I don't like. The popular voting system can be easily rigged. I do like how Saatchi has competitions to send artists to art fairs but he is not the only one. I just read that Myartspace launched a student scholarship competition as well and a competition to send winners to the Bridge Art Fair at Art Basel. I wonder if Myartspace and Saatchi will clash at some point? There are only so many art fairs to associate with.

    A plethora of artwork by famed surrealist Rory Emerald was stolen from the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, London.How did Charles Saatchi and/or his associates compensate Rory Emerald for this devastating loss? Does New Scotland Yard know who did it?
