Dear Comic Art Fan,

Hope everyone who went had a blast in San Diego last week and are posting lots of cool, new art pickups to your gallery. To round out July this is friendly reminder to add pieces to this month's sketch gallery! The theme is Myths & Legends and while it certainly includes real world myths like Hercules, Thor, or Robin Hood it can also be extended to fictional legends like that of Zelda, Korra, or Ron Burgandy. See what's already been posted at the link!

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a very happy guy who loves God, his woman, and hockey. I guess I should add I'm not very complex at this point.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

Far and away my favorite piece of art in my unposted, and posted, gallery is my is my Death of Superman DPS piece but my second favorite is the new Death of Superman/Knightfall cover I got.

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

An Infinity Gauntlet page about eight years ago on eBay started this unquenchable thirst for more and better pieces. I also remember meeting up early in my collecting days with my good friend Hart. He really gave me some great advice and encouragement.  This hobby is really dangerous to get into, and it's easy to get in over your head. I'm really grateful for the counsel I've received during my "green years.”

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

My collection goes with me, and I travel quite a bit. I'm looking forward to the day I have deeper roots, then framing and displaying will be a much more attractive option.

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

Death of Superman pages by Grummett and Hazelwood top my list. A great example of the Death of Superman storyline from Jurgens and Breeding would be next, but unfortunately the offerings for anything from that storyline I've inquired about have neared six figures. I really enjoy Travis Charest's work, so I'd have to add a splash page/cover/painting of his to the mix. I'm not so particular as to have a specific one in mind. I've found that there are just too many to love... I'll take just one, please. A Jim Lee page featuring Wolverine in action is another high priority for me, followed by a Wolverine cover by Silvestri. I'm sure once I have all of the aforementioned I'll challenge myself with an entirely new undertaking of "top five most wanted."
