i've come to appreciate comics much more as a art form. macanudo is one of my favorites. obviously in spanish, its from argentina and published in a newspaper called la nación. the artist ricardo siri liniers, better know as just liniers, has several books and has done album covers for singer kevin johansen. his humor is subtle and makes you think.

ray caesar is an english artist, transplanted to canada who digitally creates his pieces. they're sometimes hard to swallow but very beautiful as well. kinda of in the grain of mark ryden, but darker. maybe that comes from the fact that ray spent 17 years working in the photo department of toronto's hospital for sick children. i'm partial to the jellyfish. he was interviewed recently by the Ministry of Artistic Affairs: http://blog.ministryofartisticaffairs.com/2011/02/exhibition-ray-caesars-gentle-cruelty.html
