Dear Comic Art Fan,

Tomorrow night the Gusford Gallery in Los Angeles, CA hosts an exhibition of The Walking Dead #100 Sketch Covers. One hundred of the comic book industry's leading artists have donated a sketch on a blank cover to be auctioned off to benefit the Hero Initiative. Artists Todd Nauck, Jason Reeves, and Sina Grace (also a former editor on Walking Dead) will be on hand and Nauck will draw the final sketch cover live! Four covers will be auctioned live while the remainder of the covers will be auctioned off via eBay starting June 4th. Full details at the link!

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm 43 years old, Italian from Rome, husband of a wonderful bride and father of two wonderful sons of 7 and 9. I have an high school degree in Literature, a university degree in Economics, and a master degree in Management of Public Administration. Today I work for the public administration of the City of Rome …but my dream would be to work as illustrator or graphic designer!!

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

I have a lot of “favorite pieces”, but maybe the best for me is the unpublished portrait by Andrea Pazienza. This artist, unfortunately died prematurely, was a genius (for content and drawing), and let a giant sign in my passion for comics during my teenage life. To have this piece, unknown to the public because not published, is a big honor for me!

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

I read comics since the tender age of eight, but I bought the first three comic art pages only in 1991: a page from “Alan Ford” by Magnus, a panel page from “Spectacular Spider-Man” by Jim Mooney and a Silver Surfer sketch by Claudio Castellini. I was prompted to start by my eternal passion for the comic art as reader but also as beginner drawer.
4. How do you display/store your collection at home?

Every art is stored in portfolios: nothing is on the walls for humidity problems in my home!
5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?

It’s almost impossible to do a graded list for the pieces I’d like to have… but maybe I think it could be so:

1. A “Valentina” page by Guido Crepax

2. A “Peanuts” strip by Charles Schultz

3. An “Asterix” page by Uderzo

4. A “Little Nemo in Slumberland” page by Winsor McCay

5. An “Amazing Spider-Man" page by Steve Ditko
