    OMG!

    I had to come back and post. His work is spectacular. Some of the faces remind me of leyendeckers stuff so much.

    Did you see the prices he would sell some of those paintings for?:eek: Very well deserved though...

    Thanks once again JTJ.

    Do you have any more?

    Nice links, guys. Joshua, that was a great find. I was just flipping through Ryden's book the other day and loved his work. If you pick up a copy of Juxtapoz you will see a host of artists trying to follow (a little too closely) in his footsteps.

    You probably all know him, but he's to amazing to not mention.

    Check out Shawn Barber's Site

    Shawn Barber.
    www.sdbarber.com
    This Guy is a teacher at Ringling School of Art.
    Check out the FAQ section on his site, lots of good stuff we all need to hear there.
    He's an illustrator, but I think the title of "artist" definately applies.

    Mike Hussar.
    Mike Hussar is another guy. He paints some fantastic pieces. check this out. http://www.laluzdejesus.com/shows/pr...002/hussar.htm
    If you live in the Pasadena Area, there is a few pieces of his hanging in a coffee shop off Colorado. The place is called The Equator, it's in the alley where Jake's is.
