John Brosio – painter – whose work I found via This Isn’t Happiness in my Tumblr stream.

Finn Dean – a painter and illustrator whose work I found in my Tumblr stream. If you don’t use Tumblr, I heartily recommend it to anyone who wants to find the things that otherwise just don’t appear on the radar.
