M.C. Escher, Piet Mondriaan and Lawren Harris are my favourites among the better-known artists.

From the science fiction/fantasy art world I like Matt Stawicki; Larry Elmore (even if his women's armour does tend to defy gravity and common sense); and Ursula Vernon. Used to like Frank Frazetta and Boris Vallejo till I got tired of the "he-man fighting prehistoric monstrosities in the mist" idiom.

And I really like John Tenniel's drawings in Alice in Wonderland.

I have an apprecation for art but other than a few artists I don't know all that much.
Most of the names I've seen I do know and like. I'm not picky about good art.
