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”.
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.
Anna Wintour shops at Forever 21 and hates herself for it.
The secret lives of chefs.
Bojack Horseman on Netflix.
The greatest book you can buy on Amazon.com
And my personal favorite.
