    I follow and collect Mark Ryden, although only the stuff that I like, or that I can afford Some of his older and rarer limited edition productions that I would like to own either never come up for sale, or when they do, they're out of my price range. And his original works, unless they are very simplistic, exist in a high orbit above the small planet that is my art budget.

    Other than that, there are some artists that I passively 'follow' that I would consider to be part of the surrealism or 'lowbrow' art movement. I don't own anything by him, but Michael Hussar is a talented artist that dabbles in occultish, horrorish, and overtly sexual imagery that I like, but can't collect because my wife...um...isn't a fan. Look him up to see what I mean

    In general, though, I most like artwork that disturbs the senses more than soothes them. If my first and reoccurring reaction to a piece of art is 'what the fuck?,' I prefer that to thinking 'that's pretty,' although I appreciate the pretty stuff too. I think that's why I like Ryden, because his artwork is weird and a lot of times a little offensive to the senses, but it also has a subtle overall detailed beauty. Like the print of Aurora somewhere up above, the frontal nudity of the figure is a little offensive to the senses, but when you start asking yourself 'why is it offending me?,' or 'why does this make me uncomfortable?,' the internal conversation that you can have can get interesting

    I've been trying to find a perfect first state Pet Sematary dust jacket, and have come pretty close It's got the tiniest little breath of edgewear to the bottom of the spine, but only if you're really looking for it. Someday I'm going to find one that's truly perfect or unfolded (not sure if those even exist, but I'd buy it if it does), but I'm pretty happy with this one.

    Very nice pictures.
    My PET SEMATARY dust jacket is perfect, by the way. Like Bo Derek, it's a 10.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    Thanks, MichaŽl I actually feel the same way about it. If I was going to display it outside the traycase, it would be sans jacket.

    Glad I didn't offend you. I don't collect limited editions but with a few notable exceptions, the limiteds I like are the ones without DJ (King's Philtrum Press books for example, but also books like the lettered Song of Kali or the older Centipede Press books).

    Like day-um! I am so envious! My own fault, I ignored the posts about the rebound books until it was too late, but I couldn't have afforded them anyway.
    They are beautiful books and great, sharp pictures.
