So who's your favorite artist/cartoonist/illustrator/etc.?

Well, of course I love Charles Shultz and Bill Watterson.

My favorite painter I suppose would be Frida Kahlo. I'm not sure if it's really that I love her work, but I've done many reports and projects on her, so I know a lot about the women. It's a shame because she lived a very sad, painful life. Does anyone know when the movie, "Frida", will be coming on video?

The unibrow trademark is pretty interesting I must say, heheh.

Van Gough's Starry Night is my favorite painting.

But my favorite artist is Ralph Steadman. This guy is insane... i mean you'd have to be crazy to follow Hunter S. Thompson around.

funny, i took art courses for about 9 years, but i don't have a favourite artist.
an old semi-friend of mine used to do alot of work i admired. he would mold body parts (including genitals) and put body jewellery on them, then mount them in interesting patterns. he also did alot of work with stuff like mirrors and sppons that i really liked.

Once upon a time a young man drew this, and I thought he might be my favorite artist.

Well, fairy tales are magical aren't they? Only in this case the magic is true. There once was a young man named Pablo Picasso who painted something called "Woman With a Crow" in 1904.
