Mark Ryden

A couple of years ago, at the Nasher Sculpture Center book store, I came across a book featuring an incredible a collection of art by Mark Ryden.
Every few months I look through it. 
His art takes me through a range of emotions simultaneously. I am drawn to their beauty, disturbed by their eerie quality, and fascinated by the subjects. This guy has some really odd things going through his head.

Look at the work on this frame.
