Stu Mead Paintings

Stu Mead is a great, creative artist. I discovered his art a couple of years ago in a book and was intrigued. Only more recently did I take a good long look. He knows exactly how to put a picture together. With a few brush strokes, he is able to capture just the right expression on a face. He can make us laugh at every turn. His art is a bridge between the worlds of comics and fine art. Art history and the history of graphic design/illustration/comics are his references. It's got a balance of all the right elements and originality to boot.
Thanks for being you, Stu.
P.S. If you don't mind pervy humor, pick up a copy of the new "Men Beg".
(Art by Stu Mead and Frank Gaard)
