    I love this composition as in many of his works you could be going either up or down the stairs depending on your mood

    My wife and I's "shared" hobby has been collecting video games and video game art, memorabilia, and stuff. I can admit it's totally stupid, but I just love video game art work.

    We have an entire bookcase that is just a ton of books full of art by concept artists.

    There's more than one Scream and all are very famous and very expensive. I believe the last one that was sold went for about $500 Million.

    I'm more of a decor guy (lamps, clocks, vases, etc.), but I do have a couple pieces hanging on my walls.

    The first is a large early Leroy Neiman serigraph that hangs above my stereo:

    [​IMG]

    It's from 1961 and much more subtle than the bold, primary colors of Neiman's later work. Not the best photo (it's behind glass, so hard to photograph without getting reflections), but if you click on the image to see it full size, you can better see the details in the print.

    Although it is a serigraph, it is hand signed (in addition to being block signed):

    [​IMG]

    Bought it an an art auction in 1993 on a cruise for our 10th wedding anniversary. My ex-wife never liked it. So, it sat unframed in a closet until I moved out, got it framed and hung it in 2012.

    It's a pretty large print - wider than the Danish Modern credenza my stereo sits on below it:

    [​IMG]

    Another piece I have on a different wall in the same space is a Pearl Jam gig poster from 2013. By then, it was officially called Moda Center, but I'm glad the poster says Rose Garden on it.

    [​IMG]

    Again, a crappy photo, trying to avoid reflections, that doesn't do the print justice. The print has so much detail and luminosity. It's a doomsday clock by the artist Emek.

    I take my son to a lot of concerts and we always pick up some merch to help remember the shows we attend together. It's often tour shirts, but can also be posters, key chains, CDs, whatever. We got to the show early and were looking at the merch booths and both fell in love with this poster. At $40/each, they were about 2x - 3x the cost of most gig posters, but so worth it. I bought two, and took them to my car and laid them plat in the back so they wouldn't get damaged during the show. By the time I got back to the arena, the poster had sold out. I framed them the following week and hung one in my son's bedroom at my ex-wife's place and the other at my place.

    I also like album cover art. So, I hung a small shelf to the left of the Neiman print where I can rotate album covers as the mood strikes. One of my favorites is the cover of Dave Brubeck's Time Out by S. Neil Fujita:
