I am NOT an artist, but I like art. I'm one of those 'I know what I like when I see it' type guys. I like 50's sci-fi, classic monsters and sexy women. What can I say, I'm a guy. I respect the artist as I could not do what you do. But hate pretentious BS. I have more respect for a working artist, than for a diva. I'm getting to that creepy old man stage (only 49). I also have getting into the techno/industrial side of Steampunk. I also like Groo.
I need to read more, but after all these years of watching the boob tube, it is hard.
Also, a collector of 'Junk'. Not yet to the hoarding stage, but people question. I still can see most of the floors in all but one room of my house.
