NERD INTERESTS: COLLECTOR.

Several years ago I became obsessed with collecting art prints from my favorite artists.  I find my favorites online, at gallery openings, at comic-cons and craft fairs.   I like to think of myself as a “collector”.  After running out of space on my walls and money from my wallet I held myself back a bit.  This blog is a great space to share some of the artists I obsess over and work that I will eventually purchase.

One of my favorites would have to be Dave Perillo.  Right after becoming captivated with the show Breaking Bad I found ‘Jesse & Walter’s how to guide to not get rid of a body’ at my favorite Los Angeles Gallery 1988.  I love the step by step detail and the tension from that memorable Breaking Bad episode.  His work captures the essence of a movie spot on with a simple quote like “I’m your density” or “Thats no moon”.

ABSURDITY ILLUSTRATED.

Bizarre dreamlike visions finally have been illustrated into a comic strip.  At last an artist that feeds my dark and random sense of humor.

California born artist Lisa Hanawalt may be a comedic genius.  Her imagination is weird, beautiful, dirty, wicked, twisted and brilliant. Lisa is a master of anthropomorphism and is a production designer of Bojack Horseman, a new original animated series for Netflix.  Her book “My Dirty Dumb Eyes” is a collection of hilarious short comic strips that showcase all sorts of interesting glances into a world of what dogs really want, animals in hats, rumors of Anna Wintour and the secret life of chefs.  Lisa is creating a comic for my weird adult sensibilities and is constantly surprising me with new and hilarious material.
