1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Jeffrey Dodd and I live in the Great State of Texas I have worked in the wholesale car business for over 20 years. My favorite car that I have ever owned was a 1968 Mustang convertible that I drove every day for about four years and now I wish I had never sold it. My main emphasis is artwork created by Dustin Nguyen. I met Dustin when he was just starting to work on Wildcats V3.0 (written by Joe Casey) and got to know him and Rich Friend, they are both great guys and wonderful artists. I have also been fortunate to develop a great relationship with Marat Mychaels who is my main commission artist for the past ten years. He has never failed to impress me with his professionalism and work ethic; plus he is a great guy to know as well. I also actively seek art by Jackson (Butch) Guice especially from his stint on Birds of Prey and a very long list of artists I want to commission.
2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?
My favorite piece is my Detective Comics #845 cover by Dustin Nguyen.
3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?
I started collecting comics in 1973 but became disenchanted with what was being produced in the 90s. I was tired of all the multiple covers and promotions that were being produced and wanted to become more selective of how I collected. I always wanted to collect original art and as the marketplace exploded with new opportunities to collect (eBay, the Internet) I made the switch from comics to original art.
4. How do you display/store your collection at home?
I have several pieces professionally framed which I display on the walls of my office.
