    I was just curious to see who are your favorite artists, whether they be famous or obscure, or comic book/graphic novel artists, or painters a la Picasso. I'm sure not everyone in here just likes comic book artists, what other artists do you like (as well as comic book artists)?


    Here's my list of some of my favorites:
    1. Robert Crumb
    2. Jean-Michel Basquiat
    3. Art Spiegelmen
    4. Salvador Dali
    5. Herge

    They aren't even "regular awesome."

    As for favourite artists, Magritte, Goya, Dali, Ernst, Kirchner and Kollwitz are up there, though I'm not as well versed in art history as I'd like to be.

    That said, I have a total hate on for Andy Warhol, Wassily Kandinsky, Jackson Pollack, Piet Mondrian and Mark Rothko (well, pretty much Andy Warhol and any non-representative abstractionists).
