Dear Comic Art Fan, 

Big Hero 6 was the big winner last weekend at the box office making another Marvel-based hit for Disney. While the marketing campaign did not emphasize the connection, there are several Easter eggs in the movie for comic fans to geek out over. If you live in the Los Angeles area, Gallery Nucleus will host a panel with the several of the animation artists this Saturday November 15th at 2:00 PM. Details at the link!

See you next week!

1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Dan Fowlkes and I've been aflicted with the collecting bug all my life. Starting young and moving up to adulthood I've collected rocks, coins, stamps, posters, magazines, comics, comic strips, art books, and finally onto my current and lasting love of Fantasy and Science Fiction art. I'm married to the most understanding wife in the world who allows me to indulge my love of art. We also have three furry cat children (Franklin, Schroeder, and Lucy) who make our lives more fun and complete. I hope you enjoy viewing what I've managed to put together over the years as much as I have.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

My favorite piece right now is a commission I asked my friend Raoul Vitale to create for me entitled "Volos." I love the imagery of the piece Raoul painted because of it's atmosphere, technique, palette, light, and a large part to the fact that Raoul is one of the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet. To me that creates a bond between the artist, painting and myself that enhances the whole experience in buying art.

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

I started collecting original art a little over 15 years ago. It began with a Stephen Fabian piece I saw on Ebay that I won. The seller who also collects art and I became friends which snowballed into meeting other friends who collected. 

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

I have my pieces archival matted and framed under UV glass where needed or just framed. Right now all my walls sport at least one painting and several walls have multiple pieces hanging. As I pick up new pieces I store them in a large map case (flat file) until I can frame them. I also use it to store paintings that I swap out from time to time to add a little variety.

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

As far as commissions, getting ones from Raoul Vitale and Stephen Hickman has scratched that itch. I'd also like to add either a commission or a published painting from Michael Whelan, Boris, or John Jude Palencar.
