  1. Thanks Don and Don for another good show! You gave lots of artists who are new to me that I can check out. I need to see more Arthur Rackham to start. The fine art world is a funny place. I love abstract expressionism and its descendants, but some take it too far to where for me, some of it isn’t art anymore. I’m thinking of certain famous scribblers. I recognize it has a context but nevertheless I find it inherently meaningless. Maybe I should cut this short haha. It’s just to say that some illustrators are more artists than some promoted fine artists.

    Of The Studio guys, I think Jones could reach into the realm of fine art.

    I’m pretty dismissive of the Rock n Roll hall of fame. Where’s the achievement when executives enshrine executives haha? Imho it is on the same level as the WWE hall of fame, or the baseball hof without Pete Rose and Shoeless Joe (either put the best in or forget it). Common sense says you get the 50s originators, the best of the British Invasion, the best of Motown and Stax, and then you lock the dang doors until a grassroots phenomenon happens, which lets in the best of reggae, punk, and early New York rap. The Rock n Roll hall of fame, population… 25.

    Anyway that’s just some fun fan rant. I like Ditko’s Charlton stuff.

      • Thanks Dan, but it was actually Al and Don. Al is the walking encyclopedia that has educated me on cartoonists whose style I could recognize, but never knew the names of. There is a facebook group called The Golden Age Of Illustration that posts a lot of Arthur Rackham work along with many others.

        I like fine artists and find the movements they started or worked off of interesting, but have always preferred the illustrators a lot more. Jeff Jones work had a broad scope and fit in both categories.
