Tara McPherson - Most definitely my favorite artist. She was born in San Francisco, raised in Los Angeles and now resides in New York. Her array of work includes paintings, editorial and advertisement illustrations, comics (her most recent work includes Bill Willingham's graphic novel 'The Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall'), as well as posters and album covers for such bands as Green Day and Beck. She has also designed really cool toys for Kidrobot... all in all an incredibly versatile artist.
And to top it off she has great tattoos on her arms.
