1. Kinkade, easily. By a longshot. Geddes has some good artistic vision.
She does a sort of nostalgic style, sure, but it's still very creative and beautiful work, and always amazingly well done.

Kincade, because his work is nothing more than over-hyped hotel wall decorations.

Geddes, because babies are such hackneyed material. You can't fuck up a picture of a baby. We are genetically predisposed to like them. Dressing them up in stupid costumes does not make you some kind of an artist. It makes you qualified to work the photo booth at Sears.

If pressed, I would say Kincade. I've heard, despite his "Christian" image, he is a total douche to his employees, and when he is not making public appearances. There is a story of him getting drunk at some high brow party and grabbing some woman's tits because he said they looked nice.

4. I say Geddes
because some of the images (to me) are just repulsive. At least (to me) Kinkade's work isn't offensive--just very bland.

Personally, I'd rather see William Wegman's photographs on a wall--at least they make me smile. :)

6. Yeah, me too!
I was looking for the right word, and I think you found it. Creepy just fits, doesn't it? Especially when it's food oriented. Somehow I expect to become a baby cannibal after looking at some of those pictures!

7. If I had a gun with two bullets
I'd have to shoot Kincade twice.

Geddes I would strangle.

8. Kincaide reminds me of "Strawberry Shortcake on cocaine", but Geddes...
You remember all those Woody Allen movies where he tied in food with sex, right?

I think there's something quite perverse about that Geddes lady...

9. Geddes by far
Edited on Sat Dec-22-07 03:58 PM by last_texas_dem
Kincade's stuff is just kinda tacky; it doesn't bother me in the way it seems to offend many on here. Geddes's junk flat-out gives me the creeps.

10. Quite. I've heard of "baby back ribs" but they're usally on a bun. Not on a lettuce leaf.
:puke:

13. I know someone who's worked with Kincade. He (Kincade) is a total fundie asshole.
He literally prays for money and has associates do most of the actual painting.

Geddes was cute when she first got popular, but I'm over it.

17. No question...Geddes
Kincade is merely tacky. Geddes strikes me as disturbed.

18. Geddes? Rhymes with lettuce?
I don't believe I'm familiar. But if the above is an example, I'll take Kincade.

Please, give me a third choice!!
