Definitely, I have Wirewalker and Spurned framed up in my master-bedroom. I love Wirewalker and my fiancée loves Spurned, although it's hardly my favorite Brabant. When we have guests, every one of them is drawn to Spurned; they all seem to love it too. I shake my head because I have McCarthy's The Woods very nicely framed on another wall and yet people still go right to that Spurned. When I pull out Mark's other stuff from the flat file, they really seem to dig it.

Brabant is certainly evolving and I really like the direction he appears to be going. He's one of the few artists who seem to handle criticism- constructive or otherwise- in a healthy and reflective manner. I think that is echoed in each of his subsequent prints.
