a few years back, when business was good, i took on a fancy of... collecting art, it was an expensive hobbie but, on hindsight, alot better than dumping money in high-tech stocks

this painting is from the great artist Jeffrey Jones, "Tarzan and bird", for those who thought that the guy in my avatar was naked and showing his bare butt, look again, he is wearing a loin cloth, so get your mind out of the gutter hehe

i first discovered Jeffrey Jones' art when i was in highschool, from his fantasy paperback book covers, and i have been hooked ever since, this painting was done around 1965-1966, before the artist's professional career, when he was still in college...

i purchased this sketch directly from artist Jeffrey Jones in 1999, when he published his Sketch Book in 2000 i was elated to find this very sketch on page 97 , but the book only shows the drawing with ink lines, only here you get to see it in its final stage with ink wash

i love comic books, i've been reading and collecting comics ever since i was a little boy, and still am , batman has always been my favorite, so naturally when i started collecting original art i looked for batman art

this piece is a study by one of my favorite comic artists, George Pratt, for his graphic novel: Harvest Breed, George Pratt is not only a great artist but also a super nice guy, i had the pleasure of meeting him at the Comicon convention in San Diego in 2000 and again in 2001

this is a drawing i purchased from artist George Pratt in 2000, his lines are so fluent, so confident, you can see the strong influence of the Austrian artist Egon Schiele, a great piece

this is a pen ank ink drawing of "Groo" in battle by Sergio Aragonés, the fastest catoonist in the world, i bought this piece from a dealer unsigned, but in August 2001 i had a chance to meet Sergio and asked him to sign it for me, he was astonished to see this drawing, put it up close to his face to inspect it and kept saying: "This is an original..." , at the time he was signing autograph with his writing pen, he asked me to wait for his session to end so he could go find his "drawing" pen to sign it for me , it is rare that Sergio Aragonés does a drawing this elaborated

this ink drawing is by artitst Mike Hoffman from my home state South Carolina, Mike Hoffman is a very talented young artist but he needs to get away from Frank Frazetta whom he copies so much, i used to have a few more drawings and 1 watercolor by this artist but i sold them all except for this one, he sort of fell out of favor

this is a drawing of "Blackmark" by the late great Gil Kane, it was badly stained and damaged when i bought it, but i was able to restore it to almost pristine condition, i loved this piece so much that i looked at it constantly for a year... then got tired of it and... sold it hehe, kind of regret it now

Hey all & Fish, I have some of my uncle's paintings, however he only draws horses and Vietnam crop fields with cows and such .... I'll use my digital cam to take one or two to post here too .... So, have you seen any of the Viet paintings Fish? What do you think about those that you've seen? BTW, is human painting much more valuable than scenery ones? You can tell that I like art, but have no clue what they really are

I saw a poor Vietnamese painter on a documentary vidẹo He still live in VN I think. He doesn't have any arms, but he paints so good with his legs. His paintings look really nice.

yes nick, fish have seen viet art in galleries in southern cali, but unfortunately fish haven't seen any good viet art in person, fish have only seen good viet art in books and from pictures, the value of a painting is not based on whether it is fugurative or landscape nick, it depends on who created the art, if you don't know who the artist is then you have to look at composition, colors, technique and... feelings, of course we are not talking about monetary value here, if you like art nick, go to museums and look at the masters, the best paintings are the ones that you feel but yet don't comprehend
post your uncle's art for us đi nick, we want to see them plweaseeeeeeee

còn fall, art is created from the mind and the soul, not by arms or legs, you can cut off an artist' s arms and legs and he can still probably create art with his... lổ gún hehe, but if you poke his eyes out though... he might have a problem there hehehe, there is hope for you yet fall
