I recently relocated to the Detroit area for graduate school, and shortly thereafter, found myself homesick and freezing cold. This piece uses color to represent the landscape, warmth, love, and music of the Valley ... P.S. Go Suns!

The countdown to Best of Phoenix continues! Last year, we profiled 100 Creatives who made a mark on the local arts scene. This year, we'll have 100 creative representations of Phoenix.  No scope or requirement on medium or size -- we'll include photography, painting, sculpture, video, installation, literary, and more. What do you see when you Imagine PHX?

So, Claire,,,

are you ever going to answer the question asked by a reader about your # 95 pick:

Allison Elliott's Walls of Downtown Phoenix?

I was just wondering, since I still have 5 bucks riding that says if you do respond, you'll just dodge the actual question and give a non answer,  just like that time when you were accused of fabrication in regards to one of your articles.

Remember that? I do!


(Claire's non-answers for both links are in the "comments" section, and they're classic.)

Or how about that time you trashed some Comicon participants?


You never answered those readers back either.

So, why are you seemingly incapable of answering criticism from your readership base?

In my case, I do know why you won't respond back, and that's fine by me, but that doesn't explain why you duck and dodge all those other readers.

So, what is your excuse then?

Do you think their criticism is invalid?

Are you too busy "writing": some other god-awful hyper-linked article to be able to respond?

Are you a coward?

We're waiting to find out why, but I think I already know the answer. As do you, I'm sure.
