Description

Circa 1995.



As you can see from my the additional image below, Alex had simply signed the piece with no personalization when I first got if from him around 1995.. But after a few comments from fellow collectors and a smart ass dealer or two about has easy it would be for them to cut the page out of my sketchbook and sell it and that I'd have a hard time getting it back. So a few years later, as the price of his stuff keeps climbing in value, I asked if he would mind personalizing it to me. He went a little overboard in his personalization because he didn't believe me about what collectors and dealers at the cons were said, he just thought I wanted to show off to friends that I know him. It now sounds like were gay, not that there's anything wrong with it. Were both happily married to women, not each other, and live is separate states! :-)


2012 update: this painting that Alex did for me in my sketchbook was published in Chip Kidd's "Rough Justice" book as the Chapter image to "The Batman Family" chapter. Sorry there are no page numbers in the book and I'm too lazy to count.
