Well, I just wanted to say that I like the flat brightness of Grace's paintings. Sort of Egyptian. That one of her and Janis Joplin is really good.

Oh yes, the old lollipop-head newspaper-cartoonist style! That's a great caricature of Jack, anyway.

Spot on, CD! I love Rick Griffin's art. He produced a beautiful mystic surf comic, "Tales From the Tube", in which he'd drawn all the colour separations by hand. I hope to own a copy of it someday. I'll never be able to afford any of Crumb's original art, but I have plenty of his comics.

I've got some paintings, drawings that I made in the past few years.

Just check out the link: http://www.hotdog.hu/album/album.hot?id=482728 (sorry but I had these pictures in a bigger version on my old computer but that gone wrong. I have to make photos of them and then upload it again. It takes time..)

I love the psychedelic art from the 60s - they did a big influence on me (but the Airplane's music did the biggest influence!)
I love op art and art nouveu (secession) as well.

The pioneer of op art was Victor Vasarely, a Hungarian artist. He has a lot of fantastic paintings

for example:

If you like 60s & 70s posters, you should take a look at these links !

Some examples ? ;


They are all damn good.
It's a pity I couldn't have the opportunity to get a job and do similar paintings in the late sixties. :cry:
Maybe in my next life. :P
