The nature of art

There is a lot of "fan art" out there. Some of it is good, most of it is not. Much of it passes bye - on eBay or fan sites or message boards - without comment. Sometimes I think to myself, WTF ? But there it is. Some fan's sincere artistic rendering of their idol. But is it art ? Who can say ? I guess that's why they call it "fan art." (In the spirit of full disclosure, I must admit I own a few pieces of Louise Brooks fan art.)

An artist named Esqui occasionally places some of his art for sale on eBay. The piece pictured below was just listed. I like it. I like it alot. There is something "perfect" about it. Perhaps the color scheme?



There is something appealing about it. If nobody bids on it, I might. What do you think?
