Dear Comic Art Fan,

Next Thursday, July 9th, the Savannah College of Art and Design's Atlanta campus hosts an exhibition of their collection of Don Bluth originals. Donated by the visionary animator and his artistic partner Gary Goldman in 2005, the collection includes animation cels, sketches, and model sheets from their studio's illustrious history which includes classic films and video games like The Secret of NIMH, Dragon's Lair, and The Land Before Time. Be sure to take advantage of this rare opportunity. More details at the link...

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am 33 years old and a college graduate.  I also served in the military.  The first comic book I got into as a kid was G.I. Joe. I later collected many different titles but really remember Batman: Vengence of Bane as a favorite read. Currently, I am reading The Walking Dead TPBs as they come out as well as the various Aliens/Predator Omnibi published by Dark Horse Comics.

2. Which is your favorite piece in your gallery and why?

My favorite piece is my cover to X-Men #50 (American Entertainment Edition).  It's my favorite because I know how hard it is to find quality X-Men covers for sale at any price with the content and character quality that my cover possesses.

3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?

I have been collecting comic art since 2002.  I started collecting original comic art because I love the comic art medium as well as being the owner of a 1 of a kind item.

4. How do you display/store your collection at home?

Currently, all of my art is now contained in three Itoya portfolios.  In the future I plan on framing all works with the published version side by side.

5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?

If you check my gallery, you will find a gallery of Scot Eaton pencil only drawings from Marvel's Heroes guide.  I plan on having a background added and inked over by George Tuska (Iron Man), Jim Starlin (Silver Surfer), Gene Colan (Daredevil), Herb Trimpe (Hulk), John Romita Sr. (Captain America), John G. Dell (Elektra).  I just have to kick up the money.
