1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am 30 years old and live in Georgia. I have been collecting comics since I was little and have amassed quite a large collection. I enjoy reading all types of comics, including manga, and I also read fiction novels. I used to collect action figures till I ran out of run for them. My dad and I go to a couple conventions a year and recently my sister has started going with us.  I love movies and play video games.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

Probably my favorite piece is my Goon page by Eric Powell. I met him at a convention in Georgia. I flipped through the art he had and when I saw this one, I just had to have it. It is such a great representation of his art.

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

Seriously been collecting art for around 12 years. When I was younger, my dad bought me a Marvel Comics Presents cover by James Fry. This got me interested in art, and after I got a job and could afford to spend money, I started getting sketches and art pages and conventions.

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

I keep the majority of my art in portfolios. In the room I store my comic books I have a set of metal drawers in which keep the portfolios. I also have a few pieces framed.

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

I really want a very nice Frank Cho commission. A Thor would be nice. If not a commission, a really nice published piece, perhaps from his new Avengers book. 

A Buffy the Vampire Slayer commission by Jo Chen

I would love to have another piece by Gabriele Dell'Otto, a painted Thor or Wolverine

A commission from Alex Maleev, a Daredevil or Elektra

And anything from Frank Miller, but a nice Daredevil page from him would be perfect.
