    --- People might find this cheap and common. Oh really… Vincent Van Gogh.
    But everything, even when it’s just printed on postcards, or a poster or anything.

    Everything. He is just beyond words for me.
    When I heard of him… of his life, it affected me so… much.
    I felt so really heavy deep inside. Like it had my heart in a grip.
    I felt so incredibly sad, like I was about to cry immediately.
    I couldn’t… I don’t know. I never had something like that.
    It just went right through to me. I cannot put it into words.
    Like when I read his words, quotes and look at his paintings.

    Some Artists work I enjoy, aside from my own, include:

    Wassily Kandinsky
    Tasha Tudor
    Walt Disney
    Lisa Steinke's fairy illustrations
    Space art e.g. Kim Poor

    Heck, Nature contains the best art when I consider the Hubble Space Telescope, or collect rocks such as jaspers.

    Merlin has a very different personality than his father and, oddly enough considering his upbringing, considers himself to be a "regular guy". He lacks both the ruthlessness and the crudity of Prince Corwin, and seems to be almost allergic to ambition, a rare trait considering his parentage. Merlin has dark hair and light eyes. His colours are purple and gray, although he also uses the blue and gold colours of Berkeley, where he studied Computer Science on Shadow Earth.

    There are many that I like as a mainstay and others that I like going through phases. Right now i'm really taken by a contemporary artist named Kerry James Marshall. I'm not the biggest fan of wikipedia, but here is his page on there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerry_James_Marshall

    He gives rise to very powerful and truly beautiful art imo (my current avatar is a photograph of one of his paintings)

    sample:
