Ok this has been one f'ing amazing year for art collecting and despite losing my job this year, I did purchase or trade for my fair share, and I managed to make three prints for HCG myself (but I won't count them here even though I think they are dope :wink: ) In terms of my personal collection and what I acquired, here's my list of favs:
Image
DUH DUH! DUH DUH! DUH DUH DUH DUH DUH!
Image
#1/3 Wood Edition!!!!
Image
This is still one of Bruce's strongest pieces and just brilliant!
ImageImage
My first OG (and AP print) and as much as I love Tolkien, it made perfect sense!
Image
Edmiston is just a draftsmanship God! His work is unparalleled and I'm so proud to have an AP of this!

And here are all my runner ups in no particular order:
Image
My family is in love with all things Peter Pan so this is just perfect to me!
ImageImageImage
DeGraff's maps are just insane in terms of detail! I can't wait for his G1988 show in April!
Image
Image
ImageImageImage
all 3 of these are APs
And since this won't arrive till 2014, I'll don't feel it's right counting it but still... :drool: :drool: :drool:

Damn, some awesome stuff in here! No Horkey's and Stout's for me, yet, but not a bad rookie year of collecting methinks.

In no order...

A bit hesitant, since I'm still waiting on one, but...
If I had to pick five - in the category of favorite paint acquired this year:
