Who needs basketball? It's art madness!

Bracket details here.  Daily Facebook postings of matchup winners here.

My pick? Schokko with a Red Hat by Alexaj Jawlensky - in honor of one of the most challenging photo editing projects I've ever done during my college years. We were to pick out an image from our ginormous art history textbook, and without scanning, recreate the image using only Photoshop.  Most people went for the Jackson Pollock (so easy!); I thought it would be a good idea to use the brush tool and layer, layer, layer to my little heart's content to get the desired expressionist look.   I've never been able to look at the brush tool the same way again.  :)
