Here is my question which artist might it be an actor, musician, painter, writer and so on, that you like best.

My personals favorites are all involved in the film industry, those are Jim Henson best known for his work the storyteller; Ray Harryhausen known to have done his work on the valley of gwangi,Sinbad...; the most famous Stanley Kubric and Leonid Shvartsman best known by russians to be the father of the animated series Cheburaska.

My art collection is eclectic, at best. This is what hangs over the toilet.

IMAGE(http://www.rangelights.com/images/Public/100_3653.JPG)

All the old stuff, and oils, are stored away during construction. I've got some neat Persians that aren't attributed, as well as some old French watercolors. An ancestor was in the foreign service and received some nice gifts during that tenure. About all I can afford is the picture hooks. ;)

I'm a bit of a Philistine when it comes to visual art (that is to say… I'm completely uncultured), but I do like it from a musical and literary sense.

Singer/lyricist:

For those who don't know, that's Roy Khan, the lead vocalist from Kamelot. He's pretty amazing.

And that's George R. R. Martin, author of A Song of Ice and Fire. Best books I've ever read.

By the way, who was that animator Nikki & Indicative both referenced?

I'm not as familiar as I ought to be in animation... . But that said: my favorite animator(s) would have to be the Brothers Quay:

The animation studio is Studio Ghibli. "Spirited Away" is wonderful, and I also rank "Howl's Moving Castle" as one of my favourite films.

And, everybody knows the best Beatle is the only one who is still alive. Richard Starkey, come on down!

And the animatOR is of course, Hayao Miyazaki, whose name, in contrast to many animators, is definitely worth mentioning in addition to the studio.

Wait a minute, Nikki... . You aren't about to tell me Paul's dead, are you? Please don't tell me Paul's dead?!

EDIT FOR CURIOSITY: Has anybody any other animators they think I (and anybody else) should look into? Preferably not children's films, and the weirder (and better written & more creative) the better.

This is a film, not an animator, but The Triplets of Belleville (aka Les Triplettes de Belleville).

I have yet to hear a rational argument in support of the idea that Paul McCartney is dead.

Indicative: I don't know; I've seen that film, and I just didn't like it at all.

Anyhow, here're some more pretty pictures from great artists:
