    I like each of them, but I get the feeling that this kind of design is pretty trendy atm,
    not like this is a bad thing and the mentioned guys are really good at this style.
    It's a bit like audio engineering, Sturgis for example is pretty good at what he's doing
    but there are hundred of guys with a similar style that aren't as good as him because
    that's a pretty famous style atm.
    John Dyer Baizley stands out quite a bit imho, really digging his stuff.

    I am still digging the guys I liked 10 years ago:
    http://frankfrazetta.org/
    Frank Frazetta - creator of the almighty death dealer

    http://www.spawn.com/
    Todd McFarlane - Spawn, that's it!

    http://www.danseagrave.com/
    Dan Seagrave - his art has a strange twist to it, really digging it, reminds me of a
    graphic version of h.p. lovecraft stories :D

    http://www.chipkidd.com/gallery.html
    Chip Kidd - really different, pretty famous guy, digging him especially because of
    the flat design on the Jurassic Park book cover.

    http://shadowness.com/GraphicDude
    Florian Wirth - a friend of mine who I know since I am 8 years old, he did loads of
    stuff 10-15 years ago with my brother, really strange alien style stuff and so on,
    nowadays he works as an Art Director.

    http://www.adcglobal.org/archive/hof/1996/?id=324
    Erik Nitsche - I am a sucker for classic swiss design...

    http://www.drewstruzan.com/
    Drew Struzan - look at the stuff he did... nothing more to add, everyone has
    seen his work!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Bierut
    Michael Bierut - so simple, so great, yep, I love typography

    The last one is probably my brother, he's actually just drawing and sculpting for
    fun in his freetime, but he's really, really good at it.
    I still think that it's a waste that he's a dentist now...not sure if it counts here.
    He's pretty good at adapting styles and changing them, he was able to draw
    almost photorealistic versions of animals with 7-8 years, most of the time he's
    just scribbling with a pencil on small pieces of paper, but it doesn't really matter
    what kind of tool he uses.
    At least 30% of my work is designing stuff, but my brother has like 10 times more
    talent in the fingertip of his pinky than I have.
    No clue how he does it, a 2 meter acrlyic painting on canvas or a 1 cm small sculpture
    made out of stone, he gets it done, really frustrating :D
