Probably only bought about 10 things this year, but love every single one of 'em.
My photos are fudge.

Couple of paintings by Rafael Hayashi

The original pencils and inks of Guy Burwell's 'Jazz' art print (I included a pic of the framed print too but that's been on the wall for years)

A pretty good little portrait by Johnny Crap (Jonathan Bergeron)

I don't own anything by Kai and Sunny but I'm always impressed by their work. Looks good
So it goes...

I was never too bothered about their work but then I saw a couple of large original pieces in this style at an art fair a couple of months ago and was most impressed. Very pleased I picked this print up, it's a beauty in person.

First post on the forum...2017 was the year I started collecting.

Only four pickups last year from most recent back (obviously no pictures are mine...that London basement life makes for some rubbish lighting)

Just remembered that I started this thread but never actually posted. Oops. Might as well bookend this thing.

It was a real VACVVM OG heavy year! Finally tracking down a Danger clayboard was a real highlight.

Farley Bookout is a very underrated artist. I would like to see more of her work on the forum.

Great stuff in this thread, lotta classh :pint: . As a mere poster collector, these were the top three acquisitions that come to mind from 2017 (Woodson "Old Boy" was my first of 2018, but it was a big ISO so I threw it in there). My phone is old and shite, apologies for the poor photo quality.
