Already early in the contest, aryocabe's design caught my eye. I was drawn to it immediately. Because the contest had just begun, I wanted to wait to pick a winner. So I waited and more designs were released. I also asked aryocabe to make some more variations on his initial design and he did.
So I waited and waited and still the first design of aryocabe was in my head and I couldn't let it go. So, finally, I awarded aryocabe for his design.
I like it a lot.
