What artist is on your collecting bucket list?

As collectors  - it's always exciting to get your first piece of art by a particular artist.  Is there any artist that you hope to get an example from one day?

So  - I have been on the lookout for a cool painting by Massimo Carnevale for a while now. He was one of the cover artists on Y the last man and Northlanders - but most of his work is on Italian comics. What I love most from him is his paintings.  He draws great faces, costumes and more - but I adore his rendering in his paintings. While some pieces are available  for sale right now- still have not found the right one for me. Not looking for more than 1 - so I gotta love it. 

Thought I would start this post as a way to talk about artists whose work we hope to own someday. Doesn't need to be a specific piece. Just the artist. Tell us who they are, what you like about them and show a representative image of their work.  As we know many long practicing artists have changed their styles over time - so try and show an image with the qualities you enjoy.

So - what artist are you on the look out For?

when I started this thread I was looking forward to more participation. I know that asking for images is asking for a bit of work -but ultimately in art collecting its a visual medium so showing images makes this much more fun.  It doesn't need to be a lot of work though- just pick an artist you are interested in, but don't yet have art from and show some images of work they have done (google is easy to use.). Sharing the love for artists and their art seemed like a great thing to do among 'art lovers.' As the post has gotten a lot of views, I think there is interest and as a way to hopefully evoke more sharing - I would like to share another artist I love that I hope to one day pick up a piece of art from.

Dave Stevens - he needs no introduction. Super famous. Created the Rocketeer. Everyone loves him. I got to meet him at San Diego back in the 90s. Heck of a guy. 

My first taste of Dave's work was those 3d comics back in the 1980s - seduction of the innocent and Shana. I was also a huge fan of Johnny Quest -and Dave's cover to #5 has been burned onto my brain. I know I will likely never own any of these -but I love his work. I especially love his luscious inking style.   I have the art books and they are sweet. Many folks have pointed out that Dave was influenced by Matt Baker . Baker's brush technique certainly fits the bill. Is there a new Dave Stevens in comics today? If so - who is he/she?

here are some of my favorite Stevens Covers.

Let me suggest you change the title of this thread. It sounds like you are asking people to identify the artist who did the images you posted (which are terrific). 

As for me, I've always loved the 19th century political cartoonist, Thomas Nast, but that's in a whole different category:

When I look at the (very narrow) list of art that I still really want, but have no other examples of by the artist, there's really only:

Parsonavich (Patrick Parsons, aka Chris Parsons) from the Adolescent Radioactive Black Belt Hamsters series

John Romita Sr. (used to have 3 covers, but sold or traded them all)

I'm mostly done with collecting comic-book art as, nowadays, I'm more hip to Movie Poster original paintings.

Would love to own a Reynold Brown original painting.  Something like this one . . .

That's terrific.   What a great piece.

I'd love to have Brown's attack of the 50 ft woman, but who wouldn't?

Assuming either one exists of course.

Like Voord, I have to stretch a bit further to get excited these days. Actually I have to go outside comic and illustration art:

Artist I have my eye on "today" (tomorrow will be somebody else) and sorry in advance for the OT (just let me know if it's not cool and I'll shut up!)

Kelly Moore:

Just thought of another artist that I've been after for so long,so unsuccessfully, that I sort of forgot about him.

Some would call it a smart way to weaken your opponent without spending a dime :insane:

 

(I think you're not picking up on the fact I'm joking ;)  - some people do it, but I couldn't/ wouldn't)

I figured you had to be joking. Anyone with Sergio Aragones and Kent Burles art among their holdings, has to be decent at heart.  It's just I heard of this (punishment bidding) before - and really can't understand the concept.

I had to do a double-take when I saw  Parsonavich mentioned in the same breath as Romita Sr, but I get it.  I was following a lot of titles during the black and white boom and  I really enjoyed his quirky art style (so bad that it’s good).  And Romita Sr has always been one of my favs.
