Collecting, that is. C.K. Chesterton once wrote that there is little that separates a collector from a miser. Collectors are not nice people. But I can't stop! Here are a few recent acquisitions.
Ron Regé, Jr. drawing, 2 1/2 x 3 inches
I already have several drawings and comics pages by Ron Regé, Jr., so this just deepens the collection a little. As some of you know, Regé designed the logo for The Great God Pan Is Dead.
Ron Regé, Jr., Skibber Bee Bye page 4, 2000, 12 x 9 inches
Skibber Bee Bye is Regé's early masterpiece, a strange and at times disturbing graphic novel.
Cary Reeder, Storybook, 2013, 9 x 7 inches
Ever since I first saw Cary Reeder's house paintings in 2011, I've loved them. This tiny gouache was part of the Diverse Work's annual Luck of the Draw event.
Nic Nicosia, DW #2, 2013, 7 x 9 inches
This is the second Nic Nicosia I have gotten at the Luck of the Draw. It is a creepy and inexplicable image, which is why I like it.
Lisa Tan, The Temptation of St. Anthony by Hieronymus Bosch Drawn From Memory, 2013, 7 x 9 inches
I had no idea who Lisa Tan was when I got this piece at Luck of the Draw. I still don't, really, but this isn't the first piece she has made about good old Bosch.
The Means to an End, 2000
, lithograph, hand colored by the artist,
24 in x 18 inches, edition of 20
This piece by one of my favorite artists was purchased at a Paddle 8 auction.
