look: Ian Francis

I just stumbled onto Ian Francis yesterday, and already I'm head over heels in love. Maybe someday I'll be lucky enough to own of his limited edition, signed prints or giclees, but ranging from $500-1400.00, that won't be for a long, long time. I opted instead to go with this custom framed from With free shipping, the framed, print and mat came in at under $100, a much better fit for my current budget.
"A Girl Contemplates Romance/Suicide"

From the Lieberman Gallery website: Ian Francis draws his inspiration from modern life, particularly television, world events, celebrities and day-to-day living. His work is about pornography and news reports from war zones, instead of sex and death. Ian uses a mixture of painting, drawing, photography and scans of textures which are all layered together then edited digitally. "I'm interested in life, small inter-personal relationships, celebrities etc. Against the backdrop are a lot of huge apocalyptic things that you read about or see in the news that aren't always immediately obvious when you walk out the door".
