I'm going to post some images of my nephew's works. His name is Adrian Anthony and he is an unknown. If there happens to be anyone with connections who thinks the kid has talent.... he could use all the help he can get. Not only is he pretty talented(imo), with no art school training, he is a single dad.

Ghost I have that same Ed Mell framed over the mantel here at the hut.

It's framed on the wall of my office in this Seattle tower. I'm looking at it as I type this post. I scored a bunch of Ed Mell prints for next-to-nothing at some shop in Boulder about 15 years ago.

The other one, the Varo print, is on a wall at home. Her stuff is just mind-blowing.

Yes, tiki, I've always loved Maynard Dixon's landscapes.
Reminded me a bit of an amazing landscape painter who pushed into abstraction, name of Douglas Snow, from Utah. Some of his canvases are massive and so immersive.

small images online don't do 'em justice.

I forgot the woodblock prints of Tom Killion.
Our resident Nater-D turned me on to his work about four years ago.
I like the woodblock stuff from Escher so it just stands to reason I'd like his stuff too. Both artist touch on the 'oriental'.

Happy, that sheet looks awesome, he has an eye for color and detail. A good way to get his name out there, if you don't have connections, is by showing his work at a gallery. Get a portfolio of ten to fifteen pieces on a disc and target galleries that are likely to show his work. Thanks for images, those are drawings or paintings?

this just in -- I think he uses mixed media but not really sure, as I have to admit I never asked, and haven't seen his work in person(these are posted on his FB). I was at my sisters house over T/G and some oil paintings he had done were on the living room wall, but those were not the same style.

I think he is probably drawing with ink/markers and also paints, but then using scanning pieces and digital manipulation to produce the finished piece.

But I might be wrong.

Whatever it is, I like it. Good luck.

Really like that darker woodcut Jerry, reminds me of Ritter and the Minarets.

Nater.....that would be Frank H. Atkinson (Sign Painter)
His work influenced the industry bitd.

Happy, yes the 'kid' has talent......I like the zombie looking one on the bottom. Ya know some of the stuff does look a little digital. Cool tho'.

Amazingly diverse interests represented in this group. I love Maynard Dixon and Ed Mell. My friends gallery is now representing Ed in Palm Desert. Of course, who could argue with Gauguin. I hope to have a speck of that notoriety some day.

Here is a re-post of "Free" and another recent work from my studio, "Crow and Bear Discuss Abstraction" and "Cranes" Enjoy, Jude

I just purchased this limited edition/signed screen print of Liberty Cap.

The colors and feel make is seem like a turn-of-the century piece but it is a relatively modern image.

I love this side of Liberty as you rarely see pics of it.

The print just arrived so I had to hold it down on the floor to shoot it.

Nate... Well, I will unwrap it again and try and decipher the sig. However, I bought it on ETSY and the "artist" is listed as The Elecric Company.

PROBLEM... STs web posting tool is not truncating and it is a mess.)

Give me a minute or two and I'll see what the sig says.

As best I can tell... DAVE TORO is the artist.

If you do a search on ETSY for "limited-edition-classic-travel-posters" you will find it.

I just bought the sister print of Nevada Falls... Now where am I supposed to put these?

Nate I dropped out of grad school a few years back and haven't done much art since. I'd rather go climbing. I only paint when injured or when it rains for days on end. So recently I started a piece but not much to show. I'll dig up some older work and post it later.

I have always loved this one albeit a digital work of art.
I believe this one is called Floating the Problem by N.Durrant
