    Thanks for sharing these interesting (albeit pretty expected) choices! Do y’all end up having a postmortem discussion at all? This is such a small list, and while only a third of your original list was comprised of women illustrators, it’s especially noticeable to me that none of the women made the final cut for your community. I’d be interested to hear if these are things y’all talk about once voting is complete!
