Paintings of a Madman – Adolf Hitler Auction

We recently found out that one world leader’s (Vladamir Putin) painting was worth $1.1 million. Now, another more infamous and more dead former leader’s paintings will be up for auction – Hitler’s. This set of 13 paintings set to go under the hammer next month are expected to sell for a lot less, one of which is seen above.

Releases: James Jean – Sally Jupiter (Watchmen) Print

James Jean (interviewed) has this up for sale, a presumably open edition print of Sally Jupiter of an image he created for the Watchmen movie.

Some concept drawings as well as a screen shot of one of the […]

Openings: Matt Small – “Youngstarrs” @ Black Rat Press Gallery

Romanywg just sent over some images from Matt Small’s (interviewed) show “Youngstarrs” that opened at Black Rat Press Gallery last night (UK time).  This was somewhat of a coming out party for Matt, in our humble opinion, as he was able to show case his talents fully with a diverse and amazing body of work.  Hopefully, he will get the even more deserved recognition after this well-received show. There were many stunning paintings on found objects, but none more so than the showstoppers – large […]

Seen above is Schorr in his studio, holding up one of the smaller paintings for the show.
