Dear Comic Art Fan,

It's Comic Con time again! If you were lucky and savvy enough to run the gauntlet of the acquiring tickets, hotel rooms, and transportation you are probably having a great time at the biggest pop culture smorgasborg in the world! Stop by the Splash Page Comic Art and booths (#4400-4408) where CAF co-founder Bill Cox will be hanging out all weekend. Be sure to say Hi!

Plus Splash Page will host book signings with artists Tim Bradstreet, Lee Bermejo, and Sina Grace! Check out their website for further details or if you're at the con, just swing by the booth!

CAF Editor

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm in my fifties and live in a small town in the Netherlands which is (world) famous for its tree nurseries . I'm occupied as a civil servant. Besides collecting comics and comic art my other passion is music.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My favorite piece of art is the latest one I've uploaded on CAF; firstly I'm proud to come up with the idea and secondly I couldn't have wished for a better piece of art from Gerhard.

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

I've been collecting comic art since early 2000. Mainly because I did not have enough room left for my steadily growing collection of comic books to store (and I don't want to move house).

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

Most original art is stored in display maps, some of it is framed and hangs on several walls in my home.

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

The only original pages I would like to own are (of course) from the Sandman run. I can dream, can't I? Artists I would like to do one ore more commissions for me are Charles Vess (again), Jon J. Muth, James Jean (keep on dreaming) and in general those who have a unique style (to my eyes, at least) and are not afraid to step beside a trodden path.
