Any ideas for affordable artwork? Something beyond movie and band posters?

I'm interested in affordable artwork for my apartment. By affordable, I mean art for under $100. So far I've bought a silkscreened poster and a gorgeous photograph on Etsy. I also enjoy buying art from 20x200 (www.20x200.com)
Shops like art.com are so overwhelming (so is etsy, actually). I have an easier time if I have an idea of something unique to look for. Here are some examples of unique, affordable art that I enjoy:
Pirate posters by 826Valenica.org (yes, Dave Egger's charity) http://www.826valencia.org/store/shop_posters.html
Art created by the WPA for Roosevelt's New Deal -- spectacular graphic posters from the 30s and 40s--very cool!
Posters from book covers, like this great Catcher in the Rye poster:
This is the unique art I'm interested in. If you ever saw something cool on someone's wall, or this question makes you think of your favorite online store, please share!!
