Original artwork is some of the most inspiring art to see. Especially when the artist ahs done everything from cut the tree down, turn it into pulp and make paper. Then pick the correct berries and using ancient recipes handed down by his spiritual mentor's mentor create the most magnificent pigments kown to ma. This is inspirational stuff.
Sometimes we come short of this level of creation and instead opt for using the xerox machine instead of making 50 hand made copies of a 24 page comic book. Or maybe you knit for three weeks during the winter and then sell your super hero themed arm warmers the rest of the year.
And then there is the fan of something like APE aka Alternative Press Expo. We go to support the crazies who make all the cool stuff.
