The last few years I have had woefully little new art in my life so I am rectifying that. And here is some of the stuff I’ve picked up.

First, something I have posted about before but I finally took it in to be framed. A fantastic piece by my art school classmate and across the pond buddy, Jen Dixon. The bulk of Jen’s current work is abstract and this is no exception. “Dragon’s Teeth”

Jen is also now doing online art classes on Skillshare. You should check them out if you are looking to work on your artist skills.

And here is a piece by a citizen of the Hub City, Aberdeen, SD. Nick Fischer’s “Mars Patterns.”

Nick and Nicole Fischer’s work can be found here and both are part of the SD Artworks Coop Gallery in Aberdeen where I acquired this.

More recently I picked up this at Artworks, an encaustic collage by Lois Beckner, “Dead Men Walking.”

Rachel Kahn is a professional illustrator and creator of the fantastic web comic “By Crom!” The premise of the comic being Rachel’s spirit guide through life is a certain mighty barbarian created by Robert E. Howard. I have two risograph illustrations from Rachel, the first one being from “By Crom!” and the second being the a powerful wizard of chronomancy, “URMYXI.”

And finally, a bit of mass produced art that I couldn’t pass up CAUSE IT’S A BIG OL’ OCTOPUS! Cephalopods. They are awesome.

I haven’t been in a position to support art in a while so I am pretty jazzed to have possession of these works. There is so much great stuff out there I hope you grab some art from your local talent pool and from not so local when you can.
