Dear Comic Art Fan, 

 
 
The Hero Initiative has recruited over 40 artists to get up on the morning of Wednesday August 28, 2013 to simply “Wake Up and Draw.” This event is a way for artists to celebrate what would have been Jack Kirby’s 96th birthday by sending a “birthday card to Jack.” All drawings will be featured in a special gallery at here on CAF and fans can follow the action through the day on Twitter searching hashtag: #WakeUpAndDraw. All drawings will be auctioned to benefit Hero Initiative at a later date! Full details are at the link!

 
 
See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
 
 
I am a husband and father of two little ones; my little girl is three years-old and her favorite comic is Batman and my son is 19 months-old and he loves Colossus just like his daddy. I also run a page on Facebook called Comic Art Guy.
 
 
2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?
 
 
I dont think I can pick one favorite piece they are like children to me. Ha ha. I got a Colossus commission from Livio Ramondelli that I love. Livio makes the metal look so real when he does Transformers so I thought he would be a great person to do Colossus. I think he nailed it.
 
 
3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?
 
 
I have been collecting comics as long as I can remember. I just started collecting original art last year. I saw an Uncanny X-Men page on ebay and I really caught the bug.
 
 
4. How do you display/store your collection at home?
 
 
I have most of it in my office at home. Several pages hung up on the walls but the rest of them are in binders.
 
 
5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?
 
 
1) Uncanny X-Men #492 cover
2) X-Men #7 title page by Jim Lee
3) Superman Unchained fold out
4) David Finch Colossus commission
5) Almost anything by Jim Lee
