If you like art prints just buy Spustas concert posters.

Another two you might try looking at are Lance Hidy, and Michael Schwab, also a native american artist Sam English all three have some great posters, if you can find them.

Tomer Hanuka
Diana Sudyka
Tara McPherson

-but the fact that you mentioned Shep Fairey and Aelhra in the same breath is a bit disconcerting.

Use the "View New Posts" tab everytime you visit here.....

Create an Art Sites folder in your Bookmarks...add sites as you find them...

Keep an eye on "My Latest Purchase" thread...(or is it Latest acquisition"??)....thats where I steal all the "good" names of Artists from...google them, find their website, and save it in your Bookmarks folder mentioned above...

When visiting the artists site, always add your addy to their mailing list...

Love seeing schwab mentioned, I've done a whole series of prints based on Chico ca in the schwab style. He rules.

They are old, and can be hard to find but if you can get a Charley Harper print or two they cannot dissapoint.

Forgot to mention Todd Bratrud. He's one of my faves.

There's a ton of great art out there, just depends on what floats yr boat!

99% of the artists we talk about make prints of their work. So, first thing, you should really see which artists you're into rather than the ones a bunch of strangers are recommending. Start reading Hi-Fructose magazine, Juxtapoz magazine, and check out art blogs and art websites. I recommend Hi Fructose's website, this site, juxtapoz' website, Artchival, OMGPosters, maybe the Banksy board that was linked, Obey's forums, etc. If there are any blogs local to you, check them out too: here in SF I follow Warholian, FecalFace, and a few others that I can't remember right now.

Don't worry so much about the printmaking part right now, see what artists you like and grab the stuff you want.
