I had a really good 2019 that just happened to focus more on 3d pieces than 2d.

Not counting this in my top 5 since it was a gift. Amazing Mervyn Pumpkinhead (and sandman) commission from Tom Taggart

I love the rankin bass hobbit movie so couldn't believe I had never run across these before. Handpainted Terracotta sculptures by Mike Makras from the late 70's

A collection of Tulgey Woods characters from Alice in Wonderland by Hailey Haddox

Scott Gustaffson Cheshire Cat painting
ImageIMG_6760 by lastheathen, on Flickr

In any other year this massive Odin painting by Sam Flegal would have been my #1 acquisition (sorry for the glare)

But this year I finally landed one of my all time grails. An original by Dr Seuss

At first I thought this was a slow year, but after looking through my collection, I have come to realize that the first half of the year was filled with additions to my collection. The second half of the year I was consumed with the purchase of a 200 year old farm, and my art collection wasn’t a priority.

Here are five pieces that I acquired from January through June.

And then just after Christmas I acquired this: (and watched my art budget evaporate):

3) Poisonous Bears and Venomous Snakes 8/10 by Jay Ryan
