I just got back from the bookstore with a book of Gustave Dore illustrations for Dante’s Divine Comedy, sat down, and saw this awesome thread for the first time… coincidence? I think not.
I came across some great Inquisition inspired paintings and drawings by an artist [color=lemonchiffon]Nicolay Bessonov[/color] yesterday - some are pretty gruesome so beware! I think he has a thing for torture
another useful link I came across today - more graphic/illustration art but still
it’s a website for collectors of graphic art but it has a list of artists [really lots of great ones] with some examples of their work and obviously once you have a name you can search further so here’s the list:
Graphic collectibles artists
Love this thread. Lots of names I recognise and lots I don’t (can’t wait to check them all out). So I won’t repeat what’s here.
Here’s an Aussie artist who works mostly in fibreglass sculpture, reimagining the possible future of humanity and all organic life. She works in the “gallery scene” but could easily be doing concept art for Cronenberg.
“we are family” and “nature’s little helpers” are the ones to check out!
Another EXCELLENT website I came across today - all about print and sporting an enormous gallery! ENJOY
Gio has some amazing links at his blog, and some people here might be interested as well:

Sabin Howard a man without a handy pasteable ‘about’ section.
Richard Macdonald, ditto (flash is the devil).

I find Robert Heindels expressive figurative paintings of dancers truly amazing and inspiring. He was a phenomenal artist all around.
